UPDATE: Rapper Rick Ross recovering after suffering TWO seizures on separate airplane flights


UPDATE: Rick Ross is reportedly in stable condition after suffering a second seizure on another flight. The second flight, headed to Memphis from Fort Lauderdale, had to make an emergency landing in Birmingham, Alabama at 5:44 p.m. CT.

5:54 P.M. FRIDAY: Earlier today on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Memphis, Rick Ross reportedly suffered a seizure so severe that it required the plane to make an emergency landing. EMTs subsequently performed CPR on the rapper, who had lost consciousness.

Apparently though, he really is the Teflon Don; he’s already back on Twitter and recovering safely. Wale, an artist signed to Ross’s label, also took to Twitter to tout his boss’s health, saying “I just talked to Ross…he’s 100 pct ok…@tmz #dontpanic #dontpanic #mmg !!!! #gfid dec 13th!,” he wrote.

Ross’s next album God Forgives, I Don’t, is due this December, and just this week he released “This Is a Tower Heist” with Nas, the theme song to the upcoming Eddie Murphy-Ben Stiller crime comedy Tower Heist.

        You are an idiot. “Get off welfare”? How about get off of your high-horse and get a life.

      • datruth82

        Yes, b/c ‘Jesus’ clearly believed in stereotyping and blatant prejudice I suppose?

    Hi. Does anyone know who his new album- ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ is aimed towards? Im beleiving that God will touch him in a tangible way. & releive him of whatever is causing these seazures.

  • rjh90

    I’m sure Rick has enough friends on the force to get him medical help quickly. Nothing like a former C.O. turned fake gangsta. The only weight he moved is his fat @$$ across the stage
