Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison, current contestant on The Apprentice, and host of MTV’s Rock of Love is still hospitalized at an undisclosed location in Arizona, but he is awake and talking after being admitted Thursday night for a brain bleed. Ambre Lake, Rock of Love season 2 winner and former Michaels paramour, confirmed to TMZ that she had been informed of Michaels condition. His father has also confirmed that he is under the care of neurosurgeons. On his own website, BretMichaels.com, is the following statement:
“Everyone at Michaels Entertainment would like to thank all fans and friends for their continued thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.
At this point Bret remains in ICU in critical condition. He is under 24 hour doctors care and supervision. We are hopeful that further tests will locate the source of the bleeding, which has still not been located. As we all know Bret is a fighter and we are hopeful that once all is complete the slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc. will be eliminated and all functions will return to normal.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.”
Michaels had been recovering from an emergency appendectomy on April 12th, and is also a diabetic.
