Rick Ross was rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive on Thursday (March 1), according to multiple reports. Someone at his mansion in Davie, Fla. called emergency responders at 3:34 a.m. after he was reportedly found “slobbing out the mouth,” according to The Blast. The report also indicates that he was “just nodding his head” and that he had “boo-bood himself.”
Rozay reportedly became “combative” with responders, so law enforcement officials were called in to help. Authorities noted that this was particularly serious given the rapper’s history with seizures. There are conflicting reports about whether he was hospitalized. Sources say he was taken to a local hospital by ambulance and that he received treatment for pneumonia while another person claimed that his medical condition was heart-related, according to TMZ.
Additionally, Rozay apparently missed an appearance that he was scheduled to make on Thursday (March 1). A rep reportedly said that he was in the hospital. A family member, however, has denied that Ross was hospitalized at all, as per the report.
Last year, Ross opened up about his history with seizures on “Dr. Oz,” where he spoke openly about the health complications that resulted from his lifestyle. “I just woke up to a new reality,” he said at the time, “a reality where my lifestyle, me sleeping three hours a night, me eating T-bone steaks [at] 3 in the morning…caught up with me and…my body couldn’t take it anymore.”
UPDATE: Since the report was published, it’s been revealed that Rick Ross has been put on life support. He is reportedly hooked up to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine after a possible heart attack.
