Poison front man and Celebrity Apprentice contestant, Bret Michaels, is in the ICU after suffering a life threatening brain hemorrhage. But businessman Donald Trump is determined Michaels will recover.
“I am deeply saddened to hear about Bret Michaels and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time,” Trump told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive statement. “He’s a great competitor and champion and I hope he will be fine.”
Michaels was rushed to an undisclosed hospital on Thursday night with an ‘excruciating headache’.
Doctors revealed he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage – bleeding at the base of his brain stem.
He is currently in critical condition.
Michaels has had a string of bad luck regarding his health.
The 47-year-old – who is a type 1 diabetic – underwent an emergency appendectomy just two weeks ago.
He blogged about his recovery, saying he was lucky to be alive.
“They told me that if I had gone on stage like I wanted to, my appendix likely would have ruptured and I could have died,” he wrote. “As I write this, I’m feeling pretty bad, to tell you the truth. When you’re not planning on having a body part ripped out of you, it can be a shock to the system.
“While the doctors are amazing in San Antonio, there is just no way around the fact that getting your appendix out HURTS. I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts.”
And at last year’s Tony Awards the 80’s rocker was violently knocked on the head by the descending set on the stage he was performing on.
“I have played concerts with broken bones, extremely low blood sugars, the flu, colds, and all kinds of things before,” Michaels has said. “I tend to try to perform at all costs.”
Michaels’ reps have confirmed the reports but say they have no additional information until further testing is done.
