Rick Ross Hospitalised, Details About His Condition Unconfirmed
Yesterday, reports spread around the internet saying that rapper Rick Ross had been rushed to the hospital and was “unresponsive”. As his fans feared his life was at risk, a post was published on his account. It was promoting his Sunday episode of “Uncensored” on TV One.
Also, some celebrities — including Gucci Mane, LL Cool J and Missy Elliott — took to Twitter to send him messages of support on Friday, after learning that authorities responded to his South Florida home early Thursday morning.
“Prayers up for my guy,” Rapper Snoop Dogg, wrote on Twitter. “Hope you pull thru my brotha.”

The rapper’s team had not made an announcement on social media early Saturday morning, but his colleague and friend Martrel Reeves, better known by his stage name Fat Trel, claimed on Friday via that he had talked to him over the phone.
“He in da hospital but he is not on life support,” the rapper, who signed to Rick Ross’ label Mayback Music Group and Atlantic Records, wrote. ”
However, TV One’s Jessica Lane reported, “Rick Ross is on life support and is in desperate need of our thoughts and prayers,”
Lane didn’t attribute this to his family or a spokesperson for the rapper. She instead made reference to TMZ’s reports and shared a preview video of the Sunday show that Rick Ross’ confirmed Instagram account was promoting.
In the video, the rapper’s mother, Tommie Roberts, said she and the rapper’s wife, Tawanda Roberts, were given misinformation about his health when he suffered two seizures about six years ago. She said they had thought he had required CPR, but later she learned that he didn’t.
With the conflicting reports about the rapper’s condition, more details should be revealed soon.
