Famous Dex suffered a seizure during a club performance on Friday.

The rapper was onstage for a show at 1 OAK in West Hollywood during the early morning when he fainted, TMZ reports. A video shows a couple people holding Dex by his legs and shoulders while he shakes.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department received a call about a person having a seizure at a club a little before 2 a.m. They arrived on the scene just minutes later but never took the person to the hospital.

The people who helped 26-year-old Dex during the seizure carried him backstage, but it’s unclear if they were medically trained and why they didn’t admit him in a hospital. 

A rep for the artist told TMZ, "We wish Famous Dex a speedy recovery after his epileptic seizure last night. He is currently in good spirits and hopes to return back to finishing his new album. He thanks all his fans for their prayers and well wishes."

In April, Dex announced that he’s quitting lean and xanax. He revealed his decision on Instagram, crediting his belief in a higher power and his family as inspiration.

"I just wanna thank God," Dex told fans in the clip. "I don't do xans, the lean. It's over with, you know what I'm saying? God is good, God is great. I just wanna thank God for everything. I wanna thank my supporters. I wanna thank everyone for supporting me, everybody that knows me. God is so good. I'm relaxed, I'm chilling, I'm good . . . I'm doing it for me and my children. Get right. Dexter. Make the world get better."
