Rapper Lil Wayne has battled with drug addiction for many years. Now it appears that all that drug use has taken a heavy physical toll on the rapper.

He was photo'd in Saudi Arabia while performing at a concert over the weekend, and he looked like a man in his 60s. Lil Wayne, born Dwayne Carter, is just 37 years old.

Here is the image of Wayne looking VERY old:


Shortly after the concert, Lil Wayne was apprehended by authorities in Saudi Arabia for marijuana possession. Fortunately for the star, he was not arrested and allowed to leave the country.

Lil Wayne's rumored drug use has apparently taken a serious toll on him and not just in terms of his appearance. Over the years, he has suffered many of seizures, that some people believe are related to drug use.

One seizure which occurred in 2015, nearly killed the rapper. He was hospitalized in intensive care for 6 days, and news reports said the rapper was "on his death bed."

Following that, he had two more seizures in June 2016, during a cross-country flight from Wisconsin to California. The medical emergency required the flight crew to land the plane Omaha, Nebraska for assistance. Two minutes later, he had a third seizure which required the crew to land the plane in Omaha again. 

Less than a month later, Lil Wayne had another seizure, and supposedly because he did not take his epilepsy medication.

Most recently, Lil Wayne canceled a Las Vegas show on September 3, 2017, after having a seizure in a Chicago hospital earlier that day, where he was resuscitated after being found unconscious in a hotel room.
