“As far as I know, Bret will be there unless his doctors tell him otherwise,” Bret’s rep tells People. Michaels will be going up against fellow contestant Holly Robinson Peete in an attempt to raise money for his chosen charity, the American Diabetes Association.
“We’re cautiously optimistic that he will attend the finale,” the rep continues. “But ultimately, it’s up to his doctors.”
People reports that a medical professional from NYU Comprehensive Stroke Care Center, who has not treated Michaels, says it should be okay for the rock star to fly to the finale, as he is currently being given blood thinners which will prevent further clotting.
The finale of The Celebrity Apprentice takes place on Sunday, May 23rd.
