Rock star Bret Michaels, who suffered a massive brain hemorrhage on Thursday night, is still listed in critical condition and in the ICU at an undisclosed location, according to a post by Michaels Entertainment on the Bret Michaels Facebook page on Sunday. The same update was also posted on on Michaels’ very-hard- to access official website, BretMichaels.com, according to People.
The 47 year old singer , who has had some medical mishaps within the past year, reportedly is still experiencing slurred speech, dizziness and blurred vision and is under 24 hour medical care and supervision. The Facebook update also stated that the source of Michaels’ bleeding has not yet been located.
Michaels, who has long been public about his battle with Type 1 diabetes, was rushed to the hospital just two weeks ago when his appendix ruptured. He was recovering from the appendectomy when he suffered the brain hemorrhage. Michaels was also seriously hurt last June, when he was hit in the head by a prop after performing at the 2009 Tony Awards show. He suffered a broken nose and bruises.
In recent years, the Poison front man has traded life on the road for life on reality shows, appearing on three seasons of VH1’s Rock of Love and currently on the Donald Trump show, Celebrity Apprentice on NBC.
Michaels last posted on the Celebrity Apprentice Fancast blog last week, while he was still recovering from the appendectomy. At the time he posted that he was not “100% yet”. He also went on to explain his party animal image and how it pertains to his diabetes.
Last month Michaels found himself having to explain his collaboration with 17 year old Miley Cyrus on the song “Nothin’ To Lose”, where Cyrus sang a provocative line about “getting undressed”. According to MTV.com , Michaels explained that that the sexy song was not in reference to the teen singer and him and pointed out that it wasn’t even a duet.
Michaels also cited that he is a good dad. He has two daughters- 9 year old Raine and 4 year old Jorja- with his ex-girlfriend, Kristy Lynn Gibson .
