Bret Michaels Suffers Brain Hemorrhage

4/23/2010 5:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bret Michaels was rushed to the hospital late Thursday night after suffering a massive hemorrhage near his brain stem, this according to a rep for the singer.

Michaels is reportedly in critical condition at an undisclosed hospital. According to the rep, Michaels was suffering from excruciating headaches earlier in the day.

Michaels underwent several tests, the rep says, including CAT Scans and MRIs.

Michaels suffered from a "subarachnoid hemorrhage" -- bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

Earlier this month, Michaels was rushed to the hospital after experiencing stomach pains -- he ended up having his appendix removed.

When Diabetic have surgery, there is always a higher risk of complications.

Whoa, he has had the worst luck these past couple of years. Didn't a prop hit him in the face, appendix, and now this. God Bless wishing you good health in the future.

That's very sad, I hope he's ok!!! It's been awhile since a celebrity had a medical problem that was natural and wasn't related to popping too many prescription pills, hopefully this won't end the same way!

subarachnoid hemorrhage is not near the brain stem. BIG difference.
