Rick Ross

Suffers Another Seizure

On Private Jet

10/14/2011 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 TMZ has learned ... Rick Ross' private jet made an emergency landing in Birmingham, Alabama, 2 hours ago, en route to his concert in Memphis ... and we found out he suffered another seizure.

It's the second time today where a plane in which the rapper was a passenger made an emergency landing.  We broke the story ... Rick suffered a seizure this morning on a Delta flight that returned to the Ft. Lauderdale airport.

Rick went to the hospital, was released, and then took off at 5:07 PM ET from Ft. Lauderdale to make his concert  tonight in Memphis. But at 5:44 PM CDT, the plane was diverted and landed in Birmingham after Rick had a seizure on board.

Rick is currently in a Birmingham hospital emergency room.  We do not know his condition.

Before Rick took off from Ft. Lauderdale, he tweeted a video showing he was ok.

Rick was supposed to be on stage in Memphis at 7:30 PM ET.

5:05 PM PST: Sources tell TMZ, rapper Yo Gotti -- who was originally supposed to perform with Rick Ross in Memphis tonight -- has now been asked to perform solo. So far, Gotti hasn't decided.

4:47 PM PST: We've just confirmed with the hospital that Rick is in STABLE condition.

Ross, WTF?? Calm the hell down, we'll be here when you recover. And if this is all for publicity: we'll never know for sure, but (regardless if people are assuming it is, and are talkin' sh*t about) it's kinda working, bcause I'm sitting here wishing you the best. F**k all the mindless drones typing negative sh*t just because they can, a life is a life & I wanna hear more Rozay records.

Dude, I know you want to make your fans happy, but your health is more important. Let the dr's help you. STILL don't know who you are, but I can say, dying to entertain your fans just isn't worth it.

I think it's time for him to get diagnosed. Something is going on behind the scenes. He may have some kind of traveling or spraying clot, which could kill him if he isn't checked out thoroughly. Take it easy big guy and don't worry about the fans, take care of your health first.
