Rapper Rick Ross has been rushed to hospital on Saturday (NZ time) after a health scare at his Miami home.

According to a Davie Police Department report obtained by People, someone at his mansion called for emergency services, saying a man was "unresponsive", "breathing heavy" and "slobbing out the mouth".

TMZ reported Ross was receiving a respiratory treatment, and sources told it he was "hooked up to a machine that's taking over the function of his heart and lungs".

But these rumours have been denied by rapper Fat Trel.

"JUS TALKED 2 MY BIG HOMIE... HE GOOD... HE IN DA HOSPITAL BUT HE IS NOT ON 'LIFE SUPPORT' ... HE GOOD," he said on Instagram.
