Bret Michaels Returns Against Doctor's Orders

5/28/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bret Michaels will return to the stage tonight, much to the delight of his fans worldwide -- but we've learned his doctor is not crazy about the comeback plan.

Bret Michaels
Fresh off his triumphant "Celebrity Apprentice" win and "American Idol" performance, Michaels is set to perform tonight at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, MS. Sources close to Michaels tell us he had a check-up yesterday and everything was fine.

We're told Bret's doctor is not in favor of Michaels performing tonight, noting he's not "100%."  But the doctor realizes handcuffing Bret is not an option.

Nevertheless, precautions will be in place tonight.  We're told, "Bret will be slower on stage ... not a lot of dancing and will take it easy" on stage. There will also be "medical personnel" in the house ... just in case.  And, we're told, the AC will be cranked up.

If you plan on attending tonight's show, be sure to pack your extra warm bandana.

Bret you need to slow down a bit. I know you are doing alot more for you cause but not if it going to cost you your life again. I thank you for standing up for all diabices but think of your family. They need you, especialy your girls.

Gee, Bret, I want you to be 100% well. And you aren't. I wish you well, however, whatever happens, is your choice. I don't agree with it, but, that's life and none of my business. This helps me to move on and be okay with whatever health issues may surface in the future.

You People make me sick so into what someone wants to do. If he wants to return to the stage that his choice. Your comments of he is a faker etc. are just childish. Does not make him a bad person because he wants to continue with life. What has kept him alive through all of this is his strong mind to not let this bring him down. All you people making comments about how he's a bad father etc. would of never made it through any of this because you are weak. If Bret feels he can perform tonight than he should do as he wishes. Bret obviously knows his body, he canceled his performance when he had problems with his appendix. I don't think Bret is asking you to feel bad for him, he is living his life like he wishes has nothing to do with selfishness.

Ok. Maybe he's faking, maybe not. How many times have we all gone to work when we shouldn't? I don't think anyone can say they haven't done the same thing, just on a much smaller scale.



Leave him alone already. He's an adult. Aren't you?

Bret needs to cash in on this fame. This attention wont last long and he's getting dollars for doing this work. He can rest later.

I'm amazed at all of the stupid posts on here....he is not faking it - it happened a month ago.
As to being a "shi@@y father - really?" - He probably spends more time with his kids than most fathers out there....as anybody in a divorce can tell you - the dads more than likely see the kids 2 days every other week.



People are so freaking hypocritical that it isn't even funny.



Go rock, Bret --ignore these idiots. You probably put out more energy at your house than you will sitting on a stage.

He has a child who needs him. He has no business taking these risks. He's dodged several bullets but sooner or later his luck is going to run out and his daughter will grow up without her father. I'm not impressed by the idea that his daughter wants him to 'keep on rocking' - she's a little girl and doesn't understand the risks. He's the grownup and he needs to lay down and rest because his obligation is NOT to the thousands of fans but to that little girl.

As for the greed? really?? His concerts that he had to cancel WERE SOLD OUT before his illness.



There are some incredibly ignorant people on here - ones who obviously know nothing about diabetes and all that it entails. Your body slowly shuts down with this disease ESPECIALLY if you were diagnosed 41 years ago, like Bret.



Bret filmed Celebrity Apprentice MONTHS ago - all he went to was the live finale. On Oprah, you could see that half of his face was sagging. The hemorraghe was over a month ago...Bret sat on his rear and sang on Lopez...



He is as safe on stage as he is at home. he lives out in the middle of the boonies in Arizona....not in town.



His family was with him at American Idol - his family was with him at Celebrity Apprentice ---get over your hypocritical selves.



It is his life....I hope that he's around a long time - but sitting at home will not extend it...probably quite the opposite.

And anybody on here that is bashing him for not caring about his daughters HAD BETTER NOT be a part of a divorce with children (child, wife, husband)....because you know darn well that most fathers spend LESS TIME with their children than Bret Michaels.



Amazing how ridiculous that people are in their condemnation of other people.



It is funny as to how most of you who are judging him had no idea that he has TWO daughters - even though he talks about both all of the time....so I guess that you really know squat about Bret Michaels.

"He is as safe on stage as he is at home. " This has got to be, hands down, the dumbest thing I ever read. What kind of drooling fool do you need to be to believe that, just a month after a freaking brain hemorrhage, you should be jetting here and there and dancing around on stage? Christ - they don't let pregnant women fly in the last trimester, but it's ok for a recent hemorrhage victim to fly and dance about on stage?

" HAD BETTER NOT " Or else what, you shrieking harpy? You might solder down your caps lock key? Woo woo. Here's a clue. He's probably not reading this: he isn't going to be deeply moved by your ardent support, show up at your door with flowers and save you from your life.



Thanks for demonstrating for us why 'fan' was derived from 'fanatic. Goof.
