Rapper Rick Ross is back home after a brief hospital stay for what some are calling "dehydration and exhaustion". A report by gossip tabloid TMZ claimed Ross was on "life support", but that claim was widely disputed by his friends and family.

Ross' Instagram page's comment section is in shambles as his followers accuse the Maybach Music mogul and his entourage of misleading the public and using his hospital stay as a promotional stunt.

Blame TMZ for the mass confusion. They were obviously in on the stunt.

    I don’t ever want to talk about Rick Ross this much again.

  • JRock

    I heard it was exhaustion from too many fried chicken wings and puss.

    Whatever was going on 32 cents was being petty as hell with his comments. I hope the bankruptcy judge locks his ass up for bankruptcy fraud.

    I read a comment this weekend that was perfect for petty ass 15 cents Curtis Jackson.

    Almighty bless.
    But if you're playing about your health like THIS, be careful.

  • Roxie Moxie

    This makes me think of DeRay's stand-up special where he was saying how he overheard a couple arguing and he heard the woman say, "well, next time nigga you try and kill yourself, call another b*tch". ##dead

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Why would he lie about something so serious? He probably did fall ill but it wasn't as big as portrayed

  • zero options

    He went home after no one gave him any shout outs on the oscars.

  • Rayne

    Cause it will come back around.

  • Yoni7

    And you might not live to tell about it. IJS

  • CrunchyBlack1

    so whats the correlation, its not like the hospital stay will be on the show. so he not a big enough draw on his on merit?!?!

  • Kemi

    I’m over his health status!

  • datjerk

    He isn't getting any younger. Whatever he is into will eventually catch up to him. All that "good living" is going kill him.

  • Vonn

    If it's a stunt, tmz was a pawn in it.

  • iWasteTime

    TMZ stay doing the most but if his camp or label didn't make an announcement there shouldn't have been any follow up reporting on it.
    How could it even been a stunt for a pre-recorded show, on during the Oscars.
    I think something happened but it ain't our business and he didn't want it to be either.

  • Stacey J

    And it still didn't make me wanna watch his TV One special....

  • MsPam

    I’m glad I saved my prayers for him, I can use them for someone who really wants/needs them.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A friend whispered in my ear that he had an adverse reaction to "Lean". But you didn't hear that from me. ?

  • angrysolo

    the biggest, this mess never went away. now is he gonna hold a press conference now? ?

  • JRock

    I can believe that. And as soon this dummy gets better he will be drinking that crap again until it finally takes him out.

  • Vonn

    I hope not.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Really??! Not surprised. Smh

  • MsPam

    LOL! This is why I love you! ?

  • BeUtFullSoul

    @realsandrarose:disqus , BELIEVEABLE!, He was holding pretty TIGHT to those cups on Uncensored.

  • Desiree Edwards

    heard it was extreme exhaustion from a threesome...was never on CNN so i know TMZ lied!

  • dontgetblocked

    That's the first thing I thought. Wonder what he did to lose all of that weight? Hmmm.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Folks say it was the 'Lean'. Why would anyone want to drink crap that can cause your seizures or heart problems?!? It must be a helluva high...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • ?Royalty?

    Chile, the other day I hurt my shoulder and took two Aleve before I went to bed.....and was scared as h?ll I was gonna die in my sleep. ??

    As paranoid as I am about medicine, I can't imagine how these drug addicts got the heart to play with their lives all willy nilly like that.

  • Renee26

    They're all crackheads

  • Renee26


  • Roxie Moxie

    I believe that. Is this the other reason why most all artists always have shades on?? Because they're all wacked out?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Got to be because this is just crazy!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm not big on a whole lot of pills either. These entertainers are craZy!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Nigg (ah) wuteva....next time you might not be so lucky. Grown as man overdosing on a coff syrup mixture and defecating all over himself. Eeeyuks!!!!

  • Floriduhh Evans

  • SaltineCrackers

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Would it be funny if he drop dead tomorrow? It will to 50cent tho....

  • ?Royalty?


  • Yardgirl

    I love your name!!???

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Right. How do you almost die Thursday, on machines Friday, and back home Sunday to play hide-n go seek with the one kid you do claim? Please stop the stunts. I was genuinely hoping he pulled through and the reports were exaggerated.

  • luVn_liFe…

    I don't think it was a stunt,As I don't think he's OK. IMHO

  • imright

    Sandra is crazy ? that pic with that headline ?

  • Munchosgirl

    Told ya'll from the beginning they said it wasn't that serious...keep on believing TMZ....

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Said that from the beginning the police showing up because he was combative is a side effect of some from who were given narcan I believe they knew this would get out soooo they decided to make a big deal to get the focus off of what really happend which was a drug overdose. A friend told me that he has a album coming out a bunch of deals in the table can’t sour that by letting folks know he was almost on his death bed due to drug overdose. ????? Just really sick of all the shenanigans with all the so called celebrities

  • SaltineCrackers

    Lol thank you

  • Fiona

    I happened to be there, it was dire, thankfully he made it.

  • the guest

    I hate to think of anyone faking a near death experience. But I think celebrities fake illnesses not for publicity but for complete time out and time off from their life.

    I think Rick Ross was in dire health, and ALSO in need for a time out for some time. He creates cruel and ugly stresses in his life and hopefully he is rested and renewed for better.

    I like thinking rappers and rappers who are entrepreneurial and establish legitimate wealth from nothing like that Rick Ross, and I like that Rick Ross was sensible to have had a solid nine to five before rapping, but I could never get into his music because of how repugnant he acts toward women.

    I think behind closed doors most celebrities are miserable and exhausted with their lives but fame and wealth are the trade off for them.

  • the guest

    Tell it. Addiction is not cute.

  • the guest

    That's sad.

  • the guest

    We're going through allergies bad this season and I'm nervous about allergy medicines. And I don't like they put so much alcohol in cough syrups. Medicines make me nervous too.

  • the guest


  • the guest

    Will you consider to do a medical minute on lean. What is it and why are so many celebrities killing themselves with it.

  • Justice For Gemmel Moore


  • sunni_daze

    The Fat Boy that cried wolf. And we all know how that story ended.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    What happened to the fiancé he had? The white girl?

  • Roxie Moxie

    There are things that are beyond our control that put us in life threatening situations, and there are things that we can control. Like smoking cigarettes. If you choose to do this, you know what the potential damage is and what the consequences are. No sympathy for those that choose to do things such as this. He chose to drink lean (rumored to be the cause of his situation), and if so, then.....it is what it is. I don't wish death on anybody, but you can't think you're exempt from death simply because you have money.

    What did Pusha T say, "ask Steve Jobs/wealth don't buy health". Real spit......


    He had the nerve to be drinking it while being interviewed lol

  • Reina1718

    Corn ball

  • Roxie Moxie

    Word?? Wow. Come on bruh....smh Hopefully, he puts that sh*t down!

  • Allihave2say

    What proof do we have that he's actually at home? We all learned all of this from articles reported online.

  • Bossy704

    Ricky is not well. He overdosed (or as Hollywood calls it was "dehydrated & exhausted") and stayed in the hospital longer than most who do because he is old and fat. When you overdose on an opiate you either die or you don't. Naloxone works in minutes - if that is what they are still using - and yes I speak from experience. The machines he was hooked up to were just fluids and nutrients. TMZ exaggerated his condition but that's what they do.

  • facingrealit1

    I'd go along with the publicity "stunt" if the person that called 911 hadn't said that Rick "boo boo'd" on himself. That very sensitive and unscripted information makes whatever happened to him real to me. More than likely Rick has untreated sleep apnea - which causes the heart to go into an arrhythmia and stop. Most people with it just don't wake up (Flo Jo). - Either way, Rick was lucky...this time.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    that's another way of viewing it...a reset or recharge.
