Former Poison front-man and Celebrity Apprentice contestant Bret Michaels remains in critical condition after suffering a brain haemorrhage Friday morning. This latest health scare comes just weeks after the 47-year old rocker had an emergency appendectomy.
Described by family as strong and a fighter, Michaels is undergoing tests at an unknown location to determine what’s caused this latest bout of bad health. The reality TV star is a diabetic, but was quick to clear up speculation about his lifestyle earlier this month.
When I say ‘party’ and ‘let’s have fun,’ I’m one of those guys that just likes to have a great time. I’m not a belligerent drunk. I don’t need to drink, he explained.
Michaels took to his blog to explain how he was feeling after his appendectomy. When your appendix ruptures it feels like what it would feel if you’re on the losing end of a knife fight, so it takes a bit to recover from that.”
The Rock of Love star said he wasn’t feeling 100%, but the severity of the bleeding of the brain is still a shock to his family and friends, including Celebrity Apprentice mogul Donald Trump.
I am deeply saddened to hear about Bret Michaels and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time, reads the official statement.
Here’s hoping Michaels has a fast recovery, and continues to rock our world.
