Rick Ross Hospitalized After Being Found Unresponsive


Rick Ross was hospitalized early Thursday morning after police and emergency teams were called to his Florida home, the Davie Police Department confirmed to Billboard

According to TMZ, the rapper was "found unresponsive" with the 911 caller mentioning he was "slobbing from the mouth" and "nodding his head." He was reportedly rushed by ambulance to a hospital in the area to be treated for respiratory issues with the distress and heavy breathing possibly being pneumonia-related. 

In a follow-up report, TMZ added that Ross is currently hooked up to a machine that's taking over the function of his heart and lungs during his stay in the cardiac unit—all indicating the 42-year-old may have suffered a heart attack. The report concludes saying, "It's essentially a form of life support and a clear sign of how dire Rick's situation is right now."

Ross has a long history of suffering from seizures which he chalked up to exhaustion and lack of sleep. "It bore down to extreme exhaustion," he told Fuse in a 2012 interview after suffering two seizures in 2011. "I was getting two hours [of sleep] a night for the last few years…I never had a vacation because I just loved doing what I was doing."
