Bret Michaels isn’t having a very easy go of it health-wise these days. Less than two weeks after being rushed to the hospital in San Antonio, Texas, for an emergency appendectomy, the Poison frontman and Rock of Love star is back in the ICU, this time with a brain hemorrhage, and is in critical condition.

The 47-year-old rocker was reportedly rushed to an undisclosed hospital on Thursday night after complaining of an excruciating headache and diagnosed with a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage, or bleeding at the base of his brain stem. According to a source,

“After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation.”

Michaels had been scheduled to play at Florence, Indiana’s Belterra Resort & Casino on Saturday, as part of his Roses & Thorns tour.
