Rick Ross Friends Deny He’s On Life Support
Rick Ross family and friends are denying that he’s on life support. Washington, DC area rapper Fattrell, who is close to the hospitalized rapper, tweeted that he had spoke to Ross and that he is not on ‘life support’. See his message below.
As previously reported, Ross was rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning, from his Miami home. The 42-year-old rapper, who has a history of seizures, was at his home when someone called 911 after he was breathing heavily, unresponsive and ‘slobbing at the mouth’. There are conflicting reports as to what he’s currently being treated for. According to one report, he is receiving a respiratory treatment, possibly for pneumonia.
On Friday afternoon, it was reported that he was placed on a machine that takes over heart and lung functions which also helps restore oxygen back into his blood. Ross’ team has yet to comment on his condition.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that Ross has had a health scare. On October 14, 2011, Ross suffered two seizures in the same day, once in the morning and again in the early evening. Following the morning seizure, he was unconscious and CPR was performed.After suffering the second seizure, Ross was admitted to a hospital in Birmingham, Alabama, where doctors ran a battery of tests. They declared him healthy. Ross attributed the episodes to a lack of sleep in the previous week.
