London: Miley Cyrus has said that although Bret Michaels’ hospitalisation was scary, she was convinced he would be fine.

Michaels suffered a critical brain haemorrhage in April (10), just weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy.

The “Poison” star’s health later compounded when he suffered a minor stroke and was diagnosed with a hole in the heart.

Cyrus, who became friends with him after they re-recorded Poison hit ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn together’, has admitted she was scared on his hospitalisation but was convinced he would pull through.

"It was scary. But his family kept us really close and involved. Bret is strong, so I wasn`t worried,” the Daily Star quoted Cyrus as telling E! Online.

She added: “My mom and dad got a little bit worried because it`s a scary thing. But he got very lucky. I don`t think his time is done."
