He probably didn't have a seizure because he's fat, the dude drinks alcohol ALOT and smokes a bunch of weed, a combination of that can cause **** like this. Pull through rick

Hoping he is ok & healthy... praying for the best.

Why are all of you such haters? There is a man in a serious health condition and ur comments are awful.... Spend half the time improving yourself as you do sitting on social networking site*****ing on other people to feel some kind of satisfaction and I bet you will be a much happier person.
Negativity is contagious....keep spreading it and keep wondering why that is all you are getting back.

Sending well wishes to Rick Ross and his family and hoping for the best. xoxo

A lot of y'all are so disrespectful! Who cares if you know him or not...which you're lying since you're on the damn TMZ website..you know him, it's not like he's a nobody. And that's not even the point. Karma is a bitch and I hope you all get yours because of your close-mindedness with situations outside of your element. Nobody knows WHY this happened for sure, so why is it so hard to just hope he gets better?! Good lord.
