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.

Man he's had a tough few years with diabetes and his appendix and now this. I knew him from years of playing nightclubs in Los Angeles and although he was a rock star, he always treated his fans as if they were his friends. Good luck, Brett.

That hat is what's killing him. In fact I think it's a wig hat....and it's strangling his brain.

How do we know Trump fires him. Maybe he is one of the final two??? Do we know that yet?? That would be a shame. NBC would have to postpone. God Bless him and his family.

How do we know Trump fires him. Do we know who the final two are? What if he is final two? Then they for sure would have to postpone it.

Wikipedia is already reporting his death...not sure how reliable that is, but it shows he died today, 4/23/10 and they have re-worded the whole thing in the past tense. If this is so, then I am deeply saddened. If not (and I truly hope that is the case), then I send healing prayers to him.
