ORIGINAL POST (4/24): Despite reports that claimed his status may have stabilized, rocker Bret Michaels’ official website says that the rocker, who was hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage on Thursday, is still in critical condition. A brief statement on the site says, “There are several incorrect reports on Bret’s condition. Bret remains in critical condition at an undisclosed location. Further tests are being ran and information will be updated in the coming days.”
Michaels was rushed to the hospital on Thursday night and reportedly suffered from a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage. A source told People, “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.”
This most recent hospital stay comes only 11 days after Michaels underwent an emergency appendectomy in San Antonio, Tex.
