According to the outlet, the 42-year-old rapper spent time at two area hospitals over the weekend after someone at his Davie home called 911 because Ross was “slobbing at the mouth.” (RELATED: Rick Ross Hospitalized After Being Found Unconscious)
Sources told the outlet the Miami-raised rap mogul was being treated for respiratory issues. But it turned out that those medical issues were reportedly heart-related. Ross spent time in the ICU for some time and was put on ECMO (Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) which helps with respiratory and heart functions.
Early reports on Friday said that Ross was on “life support,” but later reports said that wasn’t the case. Hip Hop artist Fat Trel also posted a message on Instagram that his fellow rapper was doing “good” and not on “life support.”
“JUS TALKED 2 MY BIG HOMIE… HE GOOD… HE IN DA HOSPITAL BUT HE IS NOT ON ‘LIFE SUPPORT’ … HE GOOD,” Fat Trel wrote.
