Kristi Gibson Helped Save the Life of Bret Michaels

by at . Comments

The fact that Bret Michaels will likely make a full recovery and possibly even return to his tour this summer is amazing.

But here's something even more astounding: the promiscuous rocker has a girlfriend!

Clearly the most patient, understanding woman in the world, Kristi Gibson hasn't stopped caring for Bret despite his televised macking of reality show contestants on VH1. She traveled to the hospital with him on April 21, as Michaels suffered a brain hemorrhage.

"I'm used to being calm, because of the times when his blood sugar has gone low, and if I freak out, he freaks out," Gibson told People.

The mother of Bret's two kids, Kristi detailed the scene in the ambulance that night: "I held his hand and told him, 'It's going to be okay.' Just from his eyes, you could tell how much pain he was in. I wanted to take away that pain so bad."

Michaels has referred to his 16-year, off-and-on relationshop with Gibson as a "positive work on progress." If that's the case, it took a huge leap forward with this incident and her reaction to it.

"In most of our world, Bret's the hero, but in this situation, Kristi was the hero – she saved his life," says Michaels' guitarist and close pal, Pete Evick.
