Rick Ross: 'I Sh*tted On Myself During Codeine Seizure!!'

Publish date:

Rick Ross has revealed that he once defecated on himself and foamed at the mouth during a seizure brought on by codeine.

The 'Bawse' is currently promoting his new book, Hurricanes, and PEOPLE have posted a snippet of his memoir - and it's truly eye-opening:

"I'd caught a cold the day before and had a bad cough. I'd been taking DayQuil and using Vicks VapoRub all day. When I went to bed that night I had a seizure," he wrote.

"But I didn't come out of it the way I usually do. My breathing was all f—ed up. At around 3:30 in the morning the girl I was with went downstairs and told Tomcat I had s— myself and was foaming at the mouth."

Ross then writes that he managed to get himself in the shower to clean himself up, but that he started to cough up blood before he was rushed to the hospital where a doctor informed him that he had aspiration pneumonia. 

"Something had gotten into my lungs while I was having the seizure and caused an infection. I was sedated and hooked up to a breathing machine."

Sounds like a traumatic experience. Fortunately, the MMG boss has since quit abusing codeine.
