Poison’s Bret Michaels calls off engagement & wants a biopic

Monday Poison singer Bret Michaels called off his engagement to his girlfriend Kristi Gibson. “Although the couple have separated they remain great friends and are committed to jointly raising their two daughters,” says the rep.

Michaels, 49, and Gibson, 41, are parents to Raine Elizabeth, 12, and Jorja Bleu, 7.

After 16-plus years together Michaels finally proposed to Gibson on Dec. 2, 2010, with the cameras rolling; the big moment aired on the finale of his VH1 show Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.

On another note,  Bret is planning to make a movie about his life.

The 80’s rocker, who owns a film production company with actor Charlie Sheen, wants to put together a film to tell his story, starting from his childhood in Pittsburgh, Pa., and documenting his rise to fame with his band Poison.

“I want to tell the story,” Michaels told The Columbus Dispatch. “Mostly, when you see rock movies, it has to be this over-the-top thing. I want to give people a Bret Michaels movie where they see that my life is a comedy of errors. I also want to show my fans how to get through the kind of troubles that would leave most people flat on the floor.”

Surgery is scheduled to fix hole in Bret Michaels’ heart

The surgery needed to fix a hole in Bret Michaels’ heart has been moved to January. The operation was originally scheduled for this fall.

Doctors discovered the hole earlier this year when Michaels was in the hospital recovering from a stroke. It’s been a rough year for the rocker, who survived an emergency appendectomy and a brain hemorrhage shortly before the warning stroke. The hole in his heart is a condition he has unknowingly had since birth.

The former Poison frontman isn’t wasting time waiting for the surgery. He’s currently in the middle of his Roses & Thorns tour and his new VH1 show “Life As I Know It” premieres October 18.

Bret Michaels is released from hospital

Bret Michaels’ neurosurgeon said he has been released from the Phoenix, Arizona, hospital where he has been treated since suffering a massive brain hemorrhage 12 days ago.

Doctors “are feeling pretty confident” that Michaels will not suffer another hemorrhage and will fully recover.

The rock singer and reality TV star needs four to six weeks of rest before he can resume a normal schedule, Dr. Joseph Zabramski said.

His road manager announced last week that Michaels might be able to resume his concert tour on May 26, but his doctor said he asked Michaels to take it easy.
