LOS ANGELES — Bret Michaels is in critical condition suffering from a brain hemmorhage.

Michael’s publicist, Joann Mignano, confirmed a report on People magazine’s website Friday that said Michaels was rushed to intensive care late Thursday following a severe headache, and that doctors discovered bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

The 47-year-old reality TV star and former frontman for the ’80s rock band Poison had an emergency appendectomy last week.
