After a lengthy hospital stay, French Montana was released on Thanksgiving. The musician is now opening up about the sudden stay as well as the delay in his upcoming album MONTANA.
He FaceTimed with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 blaming his ICU stay on being “too much of a rock star.”
“You know, life come at you sometimes, get you down to your knees,” he said. “That’s what happened when you try to be too much of a rock star on your birthday. I turned up so much I ended up in the ICU.”
Last month, police were called to Montana’s home for a possible robbery. The robbery was a false alarm but they became concerned with Montana’s behaviour. Sources told TMZ that he was “suffering severe stomach pains, nausea and perhaps most alarmingly, an elevated heart rate.”
The LA County Sheriff’s Office confirmed another medical call was then made.
Montana further explained to Lowe what had happened.
“I went to like four different countries in like six days. Saudi, Egypt, Morocco, and like somewhere else,” he said.
“I ended up in my house. The rock star got a story to tell his kids,” Montana added. “I stayed there for a couple of days until I made sure my body was right to leave and come home and that a personal nurse is taking care of me. They told me I have to stay home for like four weeks until I’m fully recovered. I had an album coming out. I’m so mad because I can’t do what I’m supposed to be doing, but as long as I got people like you, my brother, people that’s been supporting me, I ain’t even worried.”
Even being in a hospital bed wasn’t about to stop Montana.
“They can’t keep a good man down,” he noted. “The doctor walk in like, ‘What are you doing?’ I’m like, ‘Pushups.’ He’s like, ‘Get your ass in that bed.’ I was stunting for the ‘gram, letting people know I was strong.”
