Little by little, details started tricking in about what really happened to Ross. Most of the early reports came from Ross’s family and friends. Naturally they were trying to protect him, but things just didn’t add up.
A family member strongly denied Rick was hospitalized, and insisted he was just battling a case of pneumonia. That was hardly the case as we’ve learned since initial reports.
Official word finally leaked that Ross, who suffered 2 seizures on 2 separate flights in October 2011, was fighting for his life. He was literally on his death bed unless a miracle happened.
