Actress Elise Neal, who dated Rick Ross earlier this year, recently spoke out about Rick Ross' recent health emergencies, blaming them on the rapper's workload, his label and hs entourage.

“I hate to say this, but I saw this coming,” she told rumorfix.com. “I think they’re pushing him too hard... They don’t think about him or his health—pushing him to do all these videos, pushing tours and shows. He is not 20 years old anymore. No one seems to care about him really or overall his health.”


On Friday, Ross suffered two seizures that forced him into the emergency room. During the first seizure, he supposedly had to be administered CPR by paramedics. Despite this, the rapper flew to Memphis to do a show after the first seizure—and suffered a second one en route. Neal criticized Ross' entourage for allowing him to travel to Memphis.

“If you have a medical emergency … if you have the people who are closest around you saying, ‘You’re alright,’ you’re going to be more apt to say, ‘I’m alright,’” the Hustle & Flow actress said.

Rick Ross and Elise Neal went on several dates earlier this year. Their relationship allegedly ended after he was seen with other women.
