MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Rapper Rick Ross has been hospitalized and is hooked up to a machine that is working as his heart and lungs.
According to TMZ, sources say the music mogul is in a Miami hospital and is getting treatment in the cardiac unit.
Police in Davie confirmed officers and paramedics responded Thursday to Ross’s home inside a gated community off Hiatus Road.
Ross was reportedly breathing heavily and was described as being unresponsive.
Ross was rushed to the hospital.
Sources also told TMZ he was put on something called ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, used to oxygenate the blood outside of his body before being pumped back in.
It’s essentially a form of life support.
The 42-year-old has a history of suffering from seizures.
