Is Rick Ross Sick? Is Rick Ross Dead?… Not so good. Star rapper, Rick Ross is reportedly hospitalized. The news of Rick’s deteriorated health statue came in the early hours of March 1, according to TMZ. Someone at his home in Miami called 911 around 3:30 AM, saying that there was a “person in distress [who] was breathing heavy and unresponsive.” The caller reportedly said the person had a history of seizures – a condition Rick has dealt with in the past. The caller also said that they were trying to wake Rick up, but he was “slobbing out of the mouth.”
Supposedly, the person in distress was woken up, and when they did, they “became combative,” law enforcement sources tell TMZ. The person – who TMZ claims to be Rick — was rushed to a hospital where they received reparatory treatment, “possibly for pneumonia,” according to TMZ. However, a family member “strongly denied” to the publication that Rick was hospitalized.
As mentioned before, Rick Ross has a history of medical issues. He suffered two seizures on two separate flights in October 2011, according to TMZ. Doctors ran tests on the rapper and found no real reason for them. Rick blamed them on a lack of sleep, but he took action to change his life afterward. Rick altered his lifestyle and diet, and the notoriously beefy rapper slimmed down, dropping up to 100lbs.
When fans heard that Rick was reportedly hospitalized, they pretty much sent their well-wishes to the hip-hop heavyweight. “Get Well Fam,” one twitter user wrote. “Prayin’ for a speedy recovery Boss.” “Keep Rick Ross in your prayers.” “Prayers up for Da Boss!”
