French Montana Explains Hospitalization: I Turned Up So Much, I Ended Up In The ICU
French Montana has opened up about his recent time in the hospital. While the rapper is now at home, he’s on bed rest for at least 30 days. Still, he took time to promote his newest album MONTANA via FaceTime. The album was released Friday (Dec. 6).
He spoke with Apple Music’s Beats 1’s Zane Lowe and said of being in ICU for days,
“You know, life comes at you sometimes, get you down to your knees. That’s what happened when you try to be too much of a rock star on your birthday. I turned up so much I ended up in the ICU.”
He also seemed to confirm reports that he was hospitalized because he was working too hard, but said his experience was certainly one for the books.
“I went to like four different countries in like six days. Saudi, Egypt, Morocco, and like somewhere else. I ended up in my house. The rock star got a story to tell his kids. I stayed there for a couple of days until I made sure my body was right to leave and come home and that a personal nurse is taking care of me. They told me I have to stay home for like four weeks until I’m fully recovered. I had an album coming out. I’m so mad because I can’t do what I’m supposed to be doing, but as long as I got people like you, my brother, people that’s been supporting me, I ain’t even worried.”
Still, it’s safe to say he’s ready to get his bounce back on, and spoke on that photo he posted of him doing pushups.
“They can’t keep a good man down. The doctor walk in like, ‘What are you doing?’ I’m like, ‘Pushups.’ He’s like, ‘Get your a** in that bed.’ I was stunting for the ‘gram, letting people know I was strong.”
It was previously reported that French Montana was hospitalized after suffering dehydration, stomach pains and hydration. He was in West Hills Hospital in San Fernando Valley, Calif. for roughly two weeks.
We’re glad French Montana is on his road to recovery!
