Butler-born Bret Michaels Hospitalized with Brain Hemorrhage

23 Apr

Singer Bret Michaels, best known from the band, Poison, and more recently, VH1 reality show, Rock of Love, has been hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage.

Michaels is a diehard Steelers fan and was born in the Pittsburgh area, hailing from Butler, Pa, though he lived most of his life in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

According to his publicist, he is in critical condition. He was rushed into intensive care last night after a terrible headache.

There is bleeding at the base of his brain stem and tests are being done; no other information has been provided.

Michaels does suffer from diabetes and a history of drug use, and last week had an emergency appendectomy. There’s no word as to whether or not any of these factors have anything to do with the hemorrhage.

Thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family at this time.
