Bret Michaels thinks Tony Awards incident contributed to brain hemorrhage
HollywoodNews.com: Bret Michaels is finally returning to tour after several months of recovering from a brain hemorrhage that almost cost him his life.
Now that he has had time to think about the incident and analyze all options, he has come to the conclusion that his freak accident at the 2009 Tony Awards “probably” contributed to the hemorrhage. He told CNN, “Two different doctors at Vanderbilt (hospital in Tennessee) looked at it, and they said, ‘Well, without a doubt, you broke your nose.’ There were a couple things that happened that were superficial, and who cares, you know what I’m saying? But the other side of it is – let’s tell the truth. Insurance companies immediately want to clear it under the table because most head injuries don’t really present themselves or show for what could be two years, a year – you don’t really know.”
“But can I say specifically that I know that that’s what caused it? No. I could never say that’s what did it. But did it contribute to it? Probably.”
