Bret Michaels: Rushed to the Hospital for Severe Brain Hemorrhage

by at . Comments

Any reality show that stars Bret Michaels is an exercise in ridiculousness and hilarity.

But the rocker's health is now a serious matter: After complaining of a headache last night, the singer was rushed to a hospital and diagnosed with a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem).

Michael is in critical condition.

"After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation," a source told People.

Michaels went through an emergency appendectomy in San Antonio on April 12. There's little medical reason why this development would be related to that procedure.

We wish Bret a speedy recovery.

** UPDATE: A statement on Bret's site reads: “There are several incorrect reports on Bret’s condition. Bret remains in critical condition at an undisclosed location. Further tests are being ran and information will be updated in the coming days.”
