Rick Ross reportedly fell ill at his home in Miami in the early hours of the morning.
Someone from Rick Ross' Miami home called 911 at about 3:30 AM on Thursday and said the person in distress was breathing heavy and unresponsive.
The "Aston Martin Music" rapper was transported to a hospital after the incident and is receiving respiratory treatment for possible pneumonia, according to TMZ.
Law enforcement told TMZ that Ross became combative when he came round. The unidentified caller tried to wake Ross up and noticed that he was "slobbing out the mouth", police tell Us. For the upcoming episode, TV One sits down with Rick Ross as he reflects on the life-changing health issue that almost cost him his life.
A family member strongly denied Rick was hospitalized.
The 42-year-old Ross, whose real name is William Roberts, has suffered from seizures in the past, which was mentioned in the dispatch report.
After initially blaming lack of sleep Ross changed his lifestyle and diet, and slimmed down, dropping up to 100lbs.
Reps for Ross did not respond to requests for comment. Since then, the Bawse has taken the healthy route and lost nearly 100 lbs.
