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.

I will keep Bret in my prayers, I think he's a good guy he comes across as a down to earth genuine kind of man. We have lost to many of the greats in the last past years, I don't think the world could handle his lost. I tune in to "The Apprentice" just to see him, what is so amazing about him is that even through he was among many stars, his persona shined the brightest. Hang in there Bret, the world still needs you.

Hey, cooldfw...
Seriously doubt what ur saying is true, but if by sheer chance it is then I truly hope then hospital admin finds out. Her butts Out. The. Door. SERIOUS HIPPA violation!
But, like I said-seriously doubting this. Your mother probably already knows ur a bonehead-not that she could tell u in the first place.
Hoping for a good outcome Brett-the music of Poison was one of the bands from the soundtrack of my 20's! )=
