Rick Ross Suffers Second Seizure Aboard Private Jet, Admitted to Alabama Hospital

Looks like the Bawse should've stayed under doctor's supervision.

At approximately 12:55 p.m. this afternoon, a Delta flight carrying Rick Ross was grounded in Fort Lauderdale when the rapper suffering a seizure. He was immediately treated by EMT and taken to the hospital.

Less than four hours later, the Maybach Music mogul made the crazy decision to check himself out and board a private jet bound for Tennessee where he was scheduled to perform for University of Memphis basketball fans.

But according to TMZ, Ross's jet never made it to Memphis. The Bawse suffered a second seizure; the plane landed in Birmingham, Alabama; and he was taken straight to a hospital emergency room.

The good news: Ross is reportedly in stable condition. And hopefully, he'll put the hustle on hold, take a short vacay, and avoid air travel.

In fact, may we suggest the Bawse get 'round for the next few weeks by custom pimped-out Maybach bus?
