Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross‘ ex-girlfriend, actress Elise Neal, has stepped forward to speak on the rapper’s recent publicized seizures and weighed in on who is ultimately to blame for his ailments.
From Neal’s perspective, Ross’ home record label, Def Jam, puts too much pressure on him to be a non-stop working machine.
“I think they’re [his record label] pushing him too hard,” Elise tells RumorFix. “I know he’s very career driven, but I don’t think they take enough time to care about what they’re doing to his body. They don’t think about him or his health, pushing him to do all these videos, pushing tours and shows. He is not 20 years old anymore — no one seems to care about him really or overall his health…If you have a medical emergency … if you have the people who are closest around you saying ‘You’re alright’ — you’re going to be more apt to say ‘I’m alright.'” (RumorFix)
Ross reportedly checked out of a hospital Sunday (October 16) following back-to-back seizures a couple days prior.
Can we get a Rozaaaaaay? After being hospitalized two times in a single day, Rick Ross is now out and about and appears to be doing better. At approximately 9:30 p.m. ET, the Bawse’s DJ, Sam Sneaker tweeted a photo of the Maybach Music Group head honcho with the message: “The Boss is good…@rickyrozay #MMG.” Around the same time DJ Khaled sent out a separate but very similar photo via Twitter with the message: “My brother ROZAY!!IS GOOD!!! @rickyrozay @Iamguccipucci #powercircle.” In both photos Ross, Khaled and MMG’s Gucci Pucci posed in front of Rozay’s Memphis, Tennessee Wing Stop restaurant.

Over the weekend, the “Boss” canceled a North Carolina appearance in light of his medical condition.
Rick Ross pulled out of a scheduled concert in Greensboro, NC on Saturday night, citing health concerns a day after reportedly suffering seizures on two different flights. A spokesperson for the Greensboro Coliseum Complex tells Fox affiliate WGHP that the rapper canceled less than an hour before the NC A&T homecoming concert was set to begin. The Greensboro concert went on as schedued, with DJ Khaled and Marsha Ambrosius on the bill. Ross’ next scheduled performance is Friday, Oct. 21 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta. Two days later, he’s slotted to perform along with Busta Rhymes at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. (Billboard)
