The 47-year-old Poison frontman recently suffered a brain hemorrhage, and also has a hole in his heart.

On Michaels' website, Dr. Joseph Zabramski writes:

    "There is no doubt that [this] is devastating news to Bret and his family," says Zabramski. "The good news is that it is operable and treatable and we think we may have diagnosed the problem that caused the Transient Ischemic Attack."

The doctor goes on to say:

    "Without a doubt he is very determined to get healthy and make a 100 percent recovery. Medically speaking it is a fantastic attitude both mentally and physically for him to have," neurosurgeon Dr. Joseph Zabramski says on Michaels's Web site. "However, Bret's brain and body are not quite 100 percent yet, especially with the hole found in his heart."

Sources close to Michaels say that the singer may not be well enough to make the Celebrity Apprentice finale on May 23 or his next concert on May 28.
