"I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," Wayne, 30, told Los Angeles radio station Power 106 on Thursday. "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures. Y'all just never hear about it."

Wayne neither confirmed nor denied reports that he was in a medically induced coma, but did describe the experience as near-fatal.

Fans of buzzed-about new R&B artist Frank Ocean were in for a special treat on Tuesday when they came to his show at the Wiltern in L.A.

Aside from being treated to his smooth sounds, the crowd also got a glimpse of Drake, who made a surprise appearance in the VIP section of the venue.

"He showed up in a white T-shirt and jeans, with a date on his arm," a concertgoer tells PEOPLE. "As the crowd noticed him walking in, they screeched and created a spotlight on him with their cell phones while taking his picture."

Once settled, the source says a head-bobbing Drake, "sang along to a majority of the tunes and seemed in great spirits while occasionally joking around with pals and taking pictures with fans."

The "Take Care" artist didn't show any overt PDA with his unidentifiable guest, but he "occasionally whispered in her ear," according to the insider.

Sara Bareilles and Keri Hilson were also guests at the show.

Tim Tebow got on one knee in Indianapolis Saturday night – to "Tebow" with Maria Menounos in the VIP section of ESPN's Super Bowl party. It was a special treat for the Extra hostess, who Tebowed solo on the Golden Globes red carpet in January.

Nearby, Tom Cruise's son Connor and his posse held court at a table, while Spike Lee, bedecked in Giants gear, relaxed with his son; Shaquille O'Neal cuddled with pint-sized girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander; and Drake warmed up for his set by handing out shots to women near the stage.
