Rick Ross was reportedly hospitalized in Alabama on Friday evening after suffering two medical scares in six hours that required planes to be diverted.

The first scare happened Friday afternoon as the MMG honcho was on a Delta Air Lines flight from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Memphis, Tenn., where Ross was scheduled to appear at a University of Memphis basketball event that night. The plane returned to Florida after Ross suffered an unspecified medical problem. He was treated at a Fort Lauderdale hospital, but tweeted “Memphis here I come” afterward.

Authorities said Ross was on the Delta Air Lines flight when he suffered the first medical episode at around 1 p.m. The flight, carrying 121 passengers, returned to Fort Lauderdale.

Mike Jachles, a spokesman for Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue, said the flight landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and was met by paramedics. They performed what Jachles called “advanced life-support care,” though it did not include CPR.

Jachles could not specify what exact care Ross was given, but he said the performer was stable, breathing, conscious and alert.

But after Ross boarded a Memphis-bound private jet, it made an unscheduled landing in Birmingham, Ala., because the 34-year-old artist experienced another medical problem, WMC-TV in Memphis reported that Ross suffered a second medical seizure and had been hospitalized.

TMZ and other media outlets confirmed in the meantime that the rapper is in stable condition.
