French Montana Hospitalized for Elevated Heart Rate, Stomach Pains
French Montana has reportedly just had some medical difficulties.
According to a report published by TMZ on Thursday night (Nov. 21), the Bronx rapper was hospitalized in Los Angeles for issues related to his heart. French was rushed to the hospital this afternoon after reportedly suffering cardiac issues and intense nausea.
Apparently, this happened after the rapper got an unexpected visit from cops at his home. According to the media outlet, it was the police who called 911 to get him medical help. Sources in law enforcement reportedly told TMZ that police were initially called to French’s Calabasas home for a possible robbery.
It turned out to be a false alarm, but French’s cardiac issues were not. Insiders connected to the rapper reportedly told TMZ that he had been suffering from stomach pains, nausea and elevated heart rate for much of the day.
French is reportedly at San Fernando Valley Hospital and is alert. He's getting IV fluids into his body and is expected to be released later today.
His medical scare comes at an inopportune time. The 35-year-old rapper is expected to release his new album Montana, a follow-up to his 2017 effort Jungle Rules, later this month. Although French hasn't announced an official release date for the project, he did confirm that the album will drop in November. To promote his upcoming release, French has released two singles, “Twisted,” featuring Juicy J, Logic and A$AP Rocky, and "Writing on the Wall,” featuring Post Malone, Rvssian and Cardi B.
