Rick Ross opened up about the seizure that changed his life forever. According to a report People published on Tuesday (Sept. 3), the Port Miami II rapper described what happened on the night his most severe seizure in 2018. In the book, Ross says that the seizure, which was brought on by a mixture codeine, alcohol and other drugs, made him foam at the mouth and defecate on himself all while he was in bed with a woman.
“I’d caught a cold the day before and had a bad cough. I’d been taking DayQuil and using Vicks VapoRub all day,” Ross says in the book. “When I went to bed that night I had a seizure. But I didn’t come out it the way I usually do. My breathing was all fucked up. At around 3:30 in the morning the girl I was with went downstairs and told Tomcat I had shit myself and was foaming at the mouth.”
At the time, 911 was called but Ross told his people to turn them away since he felt like he could handle it. Once he got into the shower to clean himself f, Ross said that he began coughing up blood. That’s when he decided it was time to go to the hospital. After he arrived at the hospital, a doctor told Ross that he had aspiration pneumonia. He came down with the lung infection after something got into his lungs during the seizure and caused an infection.
