Bret Michaels In CRITICAL CONDITION After Severe Brain Hemorrhage!

| Filed under: Sad Sad

Oh no!

Bret Michaels has been rushed to the hospital and is in critical condition after suffering from a MASSIVE subarachnoid hemorrhage last night!

A source reveals:

"After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [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."

Subarachnoid hemorrhaging, which is bleeding at the base of one's brain stem, is often a complication from diabetes, which Michaels is known to suffer from.

Reports are also stating that:

According Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, people who don't receive proper medical treatment after suffering a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a 20% to 30% chance of experiencing a second bleed within the first month — and the odds of surviving a second bleed are extremely slim.

We sincerely hope for his speedy recovery!

    Oh Bret, please be okay!



  2. 2

    did you watch his show? karma for being a giant woman objectifying creep ass.

    that being said, i hope he doesn't die.



  3. 3

    Would this be due to past drug use … ?



  4. 4

    prays for him



  5. 5

    Wow…I wish him a speedy recovery! He can't catch a break.

    I'm not a fan of the guy, but this is sad. Get well soon, Bret.



  7. 7

    Tough month for Mr. Michaels. Prayers are with him!



  8. 8

    that sucks lol



  9. 9

    Hope it's because his wig was too tight.



  10. 10

    My poor Bret! He is seriously one of the nicest guys in the world. I hope he is ok!



  11. 11

    We are praying for you. God Bless. All our good energy is directed your way.
    All love to you



  12. 12

    THINK IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM GETTING HIT ON THE HEAD DURING THE TONY AWARDS A WHILE BACK??



  13. 13

    I hope he's okay. A brain haemorrhage is a huge deal and is often fatal. It's a topic close to me as my dad had a brain haemorrhage a few years ago.



  14. 14

    Karma does not inflict brain hemorrhages for being on a silly show women willfully sign on to do. Past drug use is that PAST.
    My God how miserable are you people???
    He has Diabetes, he just had surgery, surgery for Diabetics is very difficult and fraught with potential complications for even the most compliant of patients.
    God Bless this young man and his family.



  15. 15

    So sad..and just because he likes women and has sex with those who are easy and willing doesn't make him a scumbag!! Sure he could say "no" but what guy would?? Anyway
    I hope he is ok because he does seem like a nice guy and I am hoping for him to win on The Apprentice because he is the only one doing anything!!!!!



  16. 16

    My thoughts go out to him and his family. I believe he has 2 children and I pray they don't lose their father.

    God Bless this young man and his family. If you watched Celebrity Apprentice you saw a sweet, stable and bright young man who cared deeply about Juvenile Diabetes. instead of being critical let's open our wallets and donate to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation to help find a cure for this insidious disease!



  18. 18

    GET WELL SOON!



  19. 19

    Wow, get well soon Bret!



  20. 20

    bret is an amazing guy who i had the pleasure of working with. he was nothing but kind and gracious. my thoughts and prayers are with him and his daughters.



  21. 21

    finally you posted this… thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.



  22. 22

    Say what? Really, is he that sick? Best wishes. Doesn't matter if I think he's intelligent or not - best wishes.



  23. 23

    Oh no! I pray he gets better



  24. 24

    That's So Sad!
    I Hope He Gets Better Soon!



  25. 25

    Re: ladyolivia – You really are a fucking idiot.



  26. 26

    That is absolutely horrible! Hoping for a quick and complication free recovery!



  27. 27

    I LOVE Bret. He was of the nicest people I have ever met. 5 times later and he is still as sweet as he was the first. If he dies, I will NEVER be the same. FIGHT BRET!



  28. 28

    How horrifying. He has little girls to take care of. Sure hope he is ok. This is a huge deal. Damn



  29. 29

    Re: elsie72377 – Are you serious? He has two little girls and one of the nicest men alive today. I cannot believe your comment.



  30. 30

    Oh my god, what is VH1 going to do?! This is going to ruin approximately 94% of their shows.



  31. 31

    Re: elsie72377 – I meant to say the comment to Pixie not you. Im sorry!



  32. 32

    Re: elsie72377 – I agree. He is soooo nice. The above comment is disgusting. I didnt mean to reply to yours.



  33. 33

    Hope he's okay. He seems to be having a hard month! Its weird, "Talk Dirty To Me" has been stuck in my head all day and then I read that this has happened. I really hope Brets okay.



  34. 34

    Bret I pray that you make it back home safe and sound and never EVER have to go through anything like that again. I pray you live a long healthy life and be there for your daughters and hopefully even your grandkids. You are a good guy with a good heart. Bless



  35. 35

    Sad news indeed



  36. 36

    I am saddened by this news. More than likely he will suffer permanent damage, if he doesn't he will truly be a miracle. Stay strong and "Rock On" Bret!!



  37. 37

    it's a proven fact, brain hemorrhages are caused by too much masturbation



  38. 38

    Hope he comes out of it and starts taking care of his diabetes better, like oh say giving up drinking? Diabetes and alcohol are not friends. He needs to get his shit straight if he makes it out alive, which I do hope he does.



  39. 39

    Re: Sandra_Nazi_Bullock

    yeah, okay sandra nazi bullock. good point you make there.



  40. 40

    And WHY are we supposed to care???? He's a womanizing piece of shit, i hope he dies.



  41. 41

    Lost someone to a sub arachnoid hemorrage. It was sudden and he was 43. It has squat to do with drug use, past of present. It is congenital, as in the blood vessel is weak from birth and over time it weakens further until it ruptures. High blood pressure puts further stress on the blood vessel and diabetics are very prone to this and other forms cardiac disease and renal dysfunction.

    My thoughts are with his family, especially his little girls



  42. 42

    sad!! :( i hope everything get's better!



  43. 43

    ok that was harsh…but still he sucks!



  44. 44

    This is scary. That's a scary thing.
    Exactly what Kami from Malice Mizer died of, very suddenly.



  45. 45

    RIP Brett! 04-23-2010



  46. 46

    hope he gets better!



  47. 47

    Up to half of all cases of subarachnoid hemorrhage are fatal and 10–15% die before reaching a hospital, and those who survive often have neurological or cognitive impairment.



  48. 48

    I grew up listening to Poison. Back when it was all on tapes, not CD's. lol I might not approve of some of his skank behavior on his dating shows, but I absolutely hope he'll be okay. Really sad. :(



  49. 49

    I don't know if you just googled the condition or actually spoke to a rep at the hospital Perez. But one thing I can tell you is the person I knew who died of this condition also suffered a "severe" hemorrage and he was in ICU on a ventilator keeping him artificially alive for a few days.



  50. 50

    I had a feeling this dude would wind up in the hospital when I talked bout him in Cedars on his death bed. Perhaps this is due to all the drugs and STDS. Dont feel sorry for the dude,… he uses women like toilet paper.



  51. 51

    I really do like Bret and hope he gets better…AND I'm not saying this to be mean (or funny, although I thought it was when it popped into my head) but maybe he could take this opportunity to get rid of the extensions/wig/whatever is on his head and blame his baldness on the operation?



  52. 52

    Hey Perez,

    FYI - A subarachnoid hemorrhage is not bleeding at the base of your brainstem. It's infact a bleed between layers of your "dura" - the protective membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord… It's unfortunately a condition with high morbidity (it causes significant disease when it happens) and needs to be treated immediately… All the best to Brett.

    Your friendly neighbourhood (Canadian) medical student



  53. 53

    Re: FemaleFilmMajor – that's pretty fucked up. maybe you should commit suicide while your wishing on other's deaths…



  54. 54

    Prayers for Bret and his family. Get well soon.



  55. 55

    Man, Bret just can't catch a break! I REALLY hope he pulls though this. This is very very sad. I love him right now on Celebrity Apprentice.



  56. 56

    My dad, who is the coolest real hippie, Vietnam vet guy in the entire world is a diabetic. Let me tell you, diabetes robs you of everything you could ever be, whether you control it or not. Diabetes wins. He had heart attacks and strokes before he was 50.
    *
    Bret, you have young children. I pray they don't have to go through the pain that I went through watching their beloved daddy re-learn so many simple every-day things. If anything, maybe people will think about what a freaking robber and monster in the night diabetes is. I really hope you survive and thrive this illness. DIABETES IS A MONSTER.



  57. 57

    nooooooo!!!!! we need another rock of love! get better bret



  58. 58

    Stay storng Bret! Yeah, diabetes is nothing to play with espeically after surgery of any kind. Thanks Mario for not using that awful word in your previous post about Bret. I am a fan not a huge fan. But, when it comes to diabetes it is serious.

    Get well Bret prayers to you and your family.



  59. 59

    Such a nice guy. My prayers are with him.



  60. 60

    wonder if this is connected to his head injury last year at the tony's when a part of the set hit his head and knocked him to the ground



  61. 61

    I'm not a fan of the guy, but I really hope he's ok.



  62. 62

    This is sad news. I noticed over the past two weeks on "The Apprentice" he just looked drawn and tired. He really was out of his element, but he tried so hard - good on him. I pray he pulls through, but the odds are against him - sending cyber hugs ((())) his way for a swift recovery with God speed.



  63. 63

    Awww, that's really sad.
    God Bless You And Your Family.



  64. 64

    Hope he makes it and is well and recovers, but doesn't change the fact that he's still a douchebag.



  65. 65

    God bless this man and may he recover quickly and be back in good health soon.
    NOBODY deserves this and shame on those who are poking fun at this man's health problems or commenting like he deserved this - he did NOT deserve this and I pray that he gets better soon!
    Love to Brett…xo



  66. 66

    I'm glad I'm just a D-I-C-K talking
    ++
    People talking BAD about someone who may die is SHITEY
    ++
    Just my 2 cents

    From a D-I-C-K



  67. 67

    On April 6 2010, Takuya Kimura a famous Japanese baseball player and coach died from the same type of brain hemorrhage. It definitely does not look good for Bret.



  68. 68

    He's not exactly the portrait of health in the first place. I don't wish harm upon anyone, but remind me…how much does this dude drink and drug? It's an unhealthy lifestyle to begin with, but you add on diabetes and what do you get? Early death. Sucks.



  69. 69

    Re: Lola24
    There are always a couple trolls in every bunch!!! Love to Bret too!



  70. 70

    Keep Bret in your thoughts and prays



  71. 71

    Oh wow, that does sound serious. Even though I hate him, hopefully he gets through this



  72. 72

    I never watched his show with the girls, but I figured he was a sleazy jerk until I saw him on The Apprentice. He seems like a very nice person. Even when some of the contestants, like Michael Johnson & that wrestler Goldberg were A-holes to him, he still remained respectful to them.



  73. 73

    He is a diabetic, as am I. Our health is not the best, always precarious. I have suffered from passing out from low blood sugar. The high blood sugar does a number on your system as well. He just had surgery for a burst appendix.



  74. 74

    i don't like the dude but i don't wish him to die either.



  75. 75

    Prayers are with Bret and his family… Such sad news.



  76. 76

    Re: FemaleFilmMajor – you are the WORST type of person. he has two little girls.



  77. 77

    prayers to bret! i hope he pulls thru ok :( that sucks



  78. 78

    sad this has to happen to the guy… just lost my dad to a brain stem hemorrhage and im pretty sure the chances are slim to none of someone surviving them
    :-(



  79. 79

    I'm not a big fan of him, but I hope he pulls through. I believe he has 2 children, so it'd be sad for them to lose a father.



  80. 80

    best of thoughts, well wishes, and prayers



  81. 81

    We're praying for your Bret!! Perez your such a hypocrite it's not even funny your always trashing bret.



  82. 82

    Re: Be-Atch – yes that has a lot to do with it as well.



  83. 83

    Thoughts and Prayers go out to you and your family Bret! We love ya!



  84. 84

    OMG! but I know he is gonnna be ok I just know, ohh no don't talk about brain issues I just hit my head hours ago while figure skating and I feel really bad I'm scared, we'll be ok bret! don't give up



  85. 85

    HE'S GONE. DEAD MAN WALKING, ER.. SLEEPING. HOLD THE PRESSES!! WRITE UP THE 2 LINE OBITUARY ALREADY. IMMA SURE THE ENQUIRER WILL BEAT U TO IT!!!!!



  86. 86

    Well aint that a bitch.



  87. 87

    Get well soon Bret



  88. 88

    Poor Bret :( I know what it's like to lose a father and I am praying for his two girls. Get well soon Bret! We're pulling for you!



  89. 89

    I hope hes ok read the article about him and his precious little girls!! He seems like such a great father!!! Im prayin for him!!



  90. 90

    god bless him



  91. 91

    Stay strong Bret!!



  92. 92

    Seriously haters, can you retract your venom? This is a man, a father, another human being who is clinging to life. The women on "Rock of Love" are willing people to be in that situation. THEY are the idiots if they are looking for true love, not Bret. He seems like a truly genuine guy, a truly nice guy, which is a rarity.

    Diabetes is a killer…even if you are alive (as others have said) it really throws you for a loop in the end. Lots and lots of complications! Bret, I am praying for you that you pull through. No one deserves this….he ien't a murderer, he isn't a terrorist…save your venom for someone who deserves it :(

    My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes two weeks ago. I used Bret as an example of someone, with the disease, who lived (maybe not as other would approve) life to the fullest. Sad :(



  94. 94

    I hope he gets better. What this poor man goes thru is horrible. And he's got kids as well. Get better!



  95. 95

    He's such a nice guy, hope he gets better soon



  96. 96

    as much of an idiot as this guy has made of himself on the reality shows….it would be really sad to see him die this young. thoughts and prayers to michaels and his loved ones!

  97. @v@ says – reply to this


    97

    I wonder how his recent appendectomy may have influenced this, although they're citing his diabetes. Hope he hangs in there and conquers this as well.



  98. 98

    Come on Bret, you're a tuff guy! You can pull through this!! I really need my Rock of Love fix!!!!



  99. 99

    Wow. Some of you are assholes! Yes, he has done some bad things, as we all have. But he also does a lot of charitable things, but that's not what people want to read about. They just want to read the gossip. Sad, very sad. He has two young daughters who deserve to grow up with their father. I send my prayers to Bret and his family during this time.



  100. 100

    Just read that he is stable and is talking
