Celebrities Offer Words of Support Amid Reports Rick Ross Has Been Hospitalized

Rick Ross 'rushed to hospital with possible pneumonia'

The story started in the early hours of Thursday morning, when someone reportedly called 911 from Ross's Miami mansion.

The reports claim Ross was placed on ECMO, a machine that takes over heart and lung functions.

Rick Ross' fellow rappers like Missy Elliott, LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg and Gucci Mane have tweeted messages of support for him.

A family member of Ross, however, insisted to TMZ that the "John" rapper had not been hospitalized.

According to reports from multiple U.S. outlets including TMZ and People magazine, Ross was found to be "unresponsive" after the emergency services were called to his Miami home on Thursday morning.

This intervention has mostly been used on children, but it is seeing more use in adults with cardiac and respiratory failure. After he was transported to the hospital by way of an ambulance, the site reports that he's now receiving a respiratory treatment for possible pneumonia.

"They were trying to wake him up and he was slobbing out the mouth. HE GOOD", he wrote in a post on Instagram.

In 2011, Ross was hospitalized after suffering two seizures on two separate flights, according to TMZ. He weighed 350 at his heaviest, he revealed to Men's Health in 2016. I just, gotta be honest with you. He later told BET's 106 & Park that "it was a case of me not getting enough rest, enough sleep". With this being reported, it still remains unclear what exactly happened to Ross but signs are pointing to a possible heart attack.
