Donald Trump told on Monday that Bret Michaels’ condition is not good. Trump said the musician turned reality TV star is in “big, big trouble and the prognosis is not great.” Michaels remains in critical condition under 24 hour watch according to his tour manager, Janna Elias.

Trump said Bret Michaels has proven to be an “amazing competitor” on Celebrity Apprentice and his fighting spirit “ultimately [may be] the thing that could save his life.” Trump said he believes Michaels’ brain bleed could be related to an injury the former Poison front man suffered at the 63rd annual Tony Awards last June when he was hit in the head by a stage prop.

Doctors are still trying to pinpoint the source of bleeding in Bret Michaels’ brain and he is currently undergoing further testing. “As we all know Bret is a fighter and we are hopeful that once all is complete the slurred speech, blurred vision and dizziness, etc. will be eliminated and all functions will return to normal,” a note posted on Michaels’ website says.

Bret Michaels Condition Still Critical After Brain Hemorrhage

Singer and reality TV star Bret Michaels condition is still critical Monday after suffering a severe brain hemorrhage. Doctors have so far been unable to locate the source of bleeding.

Bret Michaels was taken to an unidentified hospital Thursday night with an intense “thunderclap headache” – a sudden pain like a baseball bat to the head. These kinds of headaches are reportedly often a symptom of brain hemorrhage.

Michaels allegedly realized he was seriously in trouble when his speech became slurred. “[He] was speaking gibberish and seemingly very frustrated by his inability to make much sense,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

“Further tests are being run and information will be updated in the coming days,” a rep for Michaels said in a press statement. “As of now Bret remains in ICU under 24 hours surveillance. Further testing this week will help locate the source of the bleeding,” Michaels’ tour manager, Janna Elias, posted on the singer’s website Monday.

“Please remember Bret is, and always has been a fighter and survivor and is under the best medical care possible,” Elias said.
