Bret Michaels has suffered another medical scare.

The 51-year old rocker, who had a brain hemorrhage in 2010, collapsed on stage at the Palace Theatre in Manchester, New Hampshire last night.

A Type-1 diabetic, Michaels had performed three songs with an “extremely low” blood sugar, according to guitarist Pete Evick, who said paramedics rushed to the singer’s aid and helped transport him to the hospital.

No one can accuse Bret Michaels of mailing anything in.

The Poison rocker took his first elimination from Celebrity Apprentice: All-Stars personally and less than gracefully the other night, breaking down off camera.

Bret reportedly was "stunned" by the "brutal" elimination.

"Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired," a show insider said. "It was just a mess when Bret was told the news and filming was done."

Every rose might have its thorn, but Bret Michaels no longer has his fiancee: the rocker has called off his engaged to Kristi Gibson.

"Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters," the singer's rep tells People.

Nice Family

Michael and Gibson are the parents of Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7. They were together for 16 years before Bret popped life's biggest question in December of 2010; the moment was caught on camera for a VH1 documentary.

Gibson has been by Michaels' side through a variety of serious ailments over the last couple years, including an emergency appendectomy, a near-fatal brain hemorrhage and a stroke.

He's on a path to full recovery now, but evidently the same can't be said of this relationship.

Add Bret Michaels to the list of people happy for Miley Cyrus.

In the wake of this singer announcing her engagement to Liam Hemsworth, the rocker - who collaborated with Miley in 2010 on a duet of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" - tells E! News that Cyrus is "one of the coolest people" and:

"She's a very talented person and I shout out a mega congratulations to her."

It's one of the funniest videos on record. But, to Bret Michaels, what happened in June 2009 is no laughing matter.

The rocker took to the Tony Awards' stage two years ago, sang alongside the Rock of Ages cast - and then knocked himself silly against a piece of scenery. Relive the dangerous/unfortunate/hilarious incident below:

Yesterday, Michaels filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Tony Award Productions, CBS and others for unspecified damages, claiming producers failed to instruct him how to properly exit the stage following this performance.

Bret was treated for a broken nose and cut lip at the scene, and the suit says his brain injury months later was due to this mishap. Reads the document:

"One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma - exactly like the one Michaels suffered at the hands of the Tony Awards."

We haven't heard the last from Brett Michaels and Miley Cyrus.

The artists recorded a duet of Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" last year, only for the release of it to be suspended because rumors of an affair between Bret and Miley's mother, Tish, flooded the Internet.

Both parties denied the story.

Now, the same week Billy Ray called off his divorce from Tish, Michaels has announced his plan to eventually release the single, even citing the rumored affair as the basis for its delay:

"The record label was supposed have to this huge humongous release of 'Every Rose.' It was going to be Miley's next-step song, but because of that, they stepped back."

Look for this rendition of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" to be available for download this summer.

Bret Michaels is okay. Let's get that important piece of information out there.

But the rocker did undergo yet another health scare last week, suffering through a massive drop in blood pressure in the days following his recent heart surgery. The cause was quickly determined, however, and Michaels is "fine," reports Dr. Mansour Assar.

"It's always good for patients to be evaluated when they're not feeling well," he says.

Four days after a procedure to repair a hole in his heart, the rocker's blood pressure plunged. Tests revealed the issues was related to dehydration and exhaustion, more likely a result of his diabetes than the operation.

Michaels is resting comfortably at home in Arizona and excited for Super Bowl XLV. He's a Pennsylvania native and Steelers fan.
