Rick Ross’s health issues are sadly on-going, as the rapper reportedly experienced another major health scare. Page Six says that before performing in New York City, Ross had a seizure and experienced “trouble breathing.”
What happened to Ross?
According to Page Six, fans present at the rapper’s April 23 show at BB King’s had to wait an hour before Ross hit the stage. While the artist did push through the performance, beforehand a masseuse was called in to help relax Ross’ body.
The scare followed uncomfortably close behind Ross’ hospitalization, which took place in early March.
The rap mogul gave everyone a scare, after reports that he was rushed to the hospital hit the internet. TMZ broke the story, reporting that Ross was “slobbing out the mouth” and unresponsive.
According to the outlet, a frantic person called 911 from Ross’ Miami home around three in the morning on March 1, saying that Ross was having trouble breathing alongside not responding when they attempted to wake him. Referring to him as a “man in distress,” the caller added that he had a history of seizures.
Later on, Daily Mail released the audio of that 911 call. The male caller, reportedly a friend of the rapper, described Ross as “breathing hard and throwing up” before telling the operator that he was “in and out” of consciousness.
During the call, the operator asked several questions as Ross’ friend answered with a seemingly shaky, nervous voice.
According to the outlet, the call, which lasted a little over six minutes, was made right after Ross passed out in his Florida home. As the caller became increasingly nervous, his voice quivered as he asked the status of the ambulance several times.
“You alright?” the caller can be heard asking Ross. “The ambulance is on the way.” While the rapper wasn’t speaking, he was able to nod his head occasionally.
Towards the end of the recording, the friend told Ross to refrain from moving shortly after the operator instructed for Ross to not get any food or water while waiting.
Lots of Love
Though Ross reportedly became combative when he came to, he made it to the hospital via ambulance in time to be treated. News on what the rapper was treated for varies, with some claiming he was treated for respiratory issues (possible pneumonia) and others claiming that his treatment was heart-related.
Meanwhile, “a family member strongly denied Rick was hospitalized,” according to TMZ. However, reports steadily become more grave, getting as serious as the rapper being hooked up to a machine that took over the function of his lungs and heart.
Regardless, social media was filled with praying hands emojis for the rapper, as fellow celebs sent out well-wishes. “Prayers up for my guy Rick Ross 🙏🏿 hope you pull thru my brotha,” P. Diddy tweeted, alongside Ciara, who wrote, “Praying For #RickRoss 🙏🏽.” “Prayers up for @RickRoss 🙏🏾,” Miami basketball player Udonis Haslem added. “Straight up man!! Prayers up to the homie @RickRoss 🙏🏾,” LeBron James chimed in.
“Everyone pray for my buddy @RickRoss to get well soon!” Gucci Mane posted. Missy Elliot also took to Twitter, writing, “I BELIEVE in the Power of Prayer Sending Prayers up for Rick Ross🙏🏾.” “Sending love and prayers up for Rick Ross and his family. Stay encouraged stay strong,” LL Cool J added.
