Rick Ross Avoids Airplane, Travels by Bus Back to Atlanta Home [Update]

After suffering two seizures last Friday (October 14) on board two separate airplanes, Rick Ross will be staying on the ground, as he travels back home to Atlanta.

According to TMZ, Ross boarded his longtime friend and business associate DJ Khaled’s tour bus yesterday (October 15) in Alabama—where he had been hospitalized following his second seizure—and was taken to Memphis. He is expected to get back on the ride today and return to the ATL so he will not have to fly and risk the change of another emergency.

While in M-Town, Rozay’s DJ, Sam Sneaker posted a photo on his Twitter account of the two eating at Wingstop—a chicken restaurant franchise that Ross has plans to buy into.

As previously reported, Ross was scheduled to perform in Memphis on Friday (October 14), however, while traveling to the show from Florida he suffered a seizure. The private jet was forced to land in Alabama in order for the rapper to seek medical treatment. Ross later sent a message over Twitter that confirmed he was OK and included a TwitVid announcing that he was back on a plane to Memphis from Alabama and that he was fine.

Word broke late Friday night though, that Ross suffered a second seizure on the way to Memphis.

Calls to Rick Ross’s management, his label, Def Jam, and his MMG home, Warner Bros., have yet to provide any additional information regarding the cause of the rapper’s condition and DJ Khaled has yet to respond to requests for comment as of press time.
