TMZ.com reports that STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland experienced a mild seizure during an American Airlines flight earlier today.

Sources close to Scott tell TMZ.com he suffered the seizure while flying from Los Angeles to Miami. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.

UPDATE: A rep traveling with Weiland tells Rolling Stone that the airplane staff called for medical assistance over the loud speaker and had to administer oxygen to Weiland. Shortly after, Weiland had come to and was "in good spirits" as was taken off the plane for the hospital.

According to the report, Scott has a history of seizures and was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures.

Weiland is scheduled to promote the launch of his new men's clothing line, Weiland For English Laundry, on Saturday, September 19 at Miami Beach, Florida's Mansion with a live performance and fashion show.

Weiland for English Laundry, a collaboration with English Laundry designer Christopher Wicks, debuted at the MAGIC trade show August 31-September 2. The collection features rock-inspired wovens, vests, t-shirts, pants, hats, ties and scarves. Weiland for English Laundry blends the classic style and high quality of English Laundry with the design flare of the iconic, fashionable STP frontman.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS has spent the last few months working on a new studio album with producer Don Was. According to Weiland, the CD should be ready for release sometime in early 2010.

I'm so relieved it was nothing and he's ok now, there's nothing to worry about. And he's still playing tonight.

I just read about this :shock: Glad to hear he is ok.

The fashion show must go on for Scott Weiland.

The former Stone Temple Pilot is in Miami for the launch of his new clothing line, hours after a seizure forced him to make an emergency landing.

"Scott is doing great," the singer's publicist tells E! News.
Weiland, 41, was en route from Los Angeles to Florida when he suffered the seizure, forcing the plane to divert to Dallas-Fort Worth. Weiland was hospitalized as a precaution and then cleared to resume his trip this morning, per his rep.
He will be on hand tonight at 10 p.m. local time for the launch of Weiland for English Laundry at Mansion Nightclub in South Beach

All of his past drug use may have caused it. My cousin's husband has seizures and his doctor informed him that it was probably due to his excessive oxycontin use as well as everything else he takes. Also, I myself have read articles that claim that years of drug abuse can eventually lead to seizures. Now I'm not saying that Scott's still using drugs because I have no idea if he is or isn't. Also, I'm not saying for sure that drugs caused this to happen to Scott. I'm just saying that it's possible.
