Poison frontman Bret Michaels is currently in intensive care after suffering a massive brain hemorrhage late last night. According to People Magazine,
Bret Michaels’ health has taken a turn for the worse: after an excruciating headache late Thursday night, the star was rushed to an undisclosed hospital where doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding at the base of his brain stem).
Michaels, 47, is currently in critical condition. “[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,” the source says.
There is no word yet whether this new development is related to the rocker’s recent appendectomy or to his diabetes.
This is usually where I’d say something like “I always thought it’d be complications from gonorrhea” or “consider it divine retribution for ‘Rock of Love Bus,’” but somehow that just doesn’t feel right. I’ll remind you all that “every night has its dawn” and leave it at that. Unskinny bop, man. Nothin’ more to say.
