Tyson Ritter of The All-American Rejects

I spoke to you just days before this picture was taken and even then I knew something was wrong, despite the cast on your leg. But that heartache that the look in your eyes gave me that day, had NOTHING on the heartbreak I felt at the sight of this picture.

I don’t know WHO’S brillant idea it was to post this picture up with NO DESCRIPTION but I’m starting to wonder if they did it for shits & giggles, when they know what kinda drama by doing so would cause. Because now everyone is freaking out with the sight of this picture and the little to NO information we have with what’s going on with Tyson.

Plus it doesn’t help that Mike (the guitarist) posted up a message the other day announcing the canceling of their appearance on the Blink-182 Birmingham & St. Louis shows; and telling people that it’s nothing to worry about. Day later this picture is posted up on the rejects’ twitter.


It took everything in me not to cry at the site of this picture, he looks like he’s in so much pain and running a high fever with how red his face looks. Not to mention he looks like he’s freezing his ass off despite the site of him looking like he’s burning up with a fever.

And that’s not even the half of it, the first thing that popped in my head was how he looked like he was dying and what if he was the NEXT celebrity to die since celebrities have been just dying like crazy the past few years. Which then threw me into a deep depression, because I can’t even imagine not ever being able to talk to Tyson again.

I mean I’ve known him since 2003 and I wouldnt say we were ‘friends’ or anything, but I do know that he cares a great deal for me & Leilani, because that’s just how he is. He has such a huge heart and tries to care for everyone, but gets taken advantage in the process, so he tends to lash out or just close off to everyone, which I think is what he has done recently and I don’t like it.

I also feel like I may of had a hand in that, since I hardly get to see or talk to them now a days, back in the day I would see/talk to them like once a month because we were going to so many shows. This year I’ve only seen them twice in concert, but only got to talk to them at one show and there’s been a huge change with Tyson since then.

I also feel like his break up with Kim (his girlfriend of 6 years) took him to the top of this tree of change & he’s now taking a nose dive down it, hitting all the branches on the way down. Its just so weird to see someone change so much and I dunno it just seems like I’m watching a car accident in slow mo and I feel utterly helpless.

I mean you can’t deny the difference between 2005 & now 2009.



There’s really no point in this post at all, but that I’m just a stupid worried fan, that I happen to know this guy and just want him to get better, both with what’s going on with him right now & whatever emotional problems he may be battling as well.

This guy means a great deal to me and I think what bothers me most, is his band/music is what helped me through the death of my grandparents and now to see him like this in the hospital just hits me in all kinds of crazy ways.

I mean this was the guy that told me he was sorry about the loss of my grandma, BEFORE I even got a chance to tell him about it (someone else told him) and then proceeded to cry with me & fan my face so that I would stop, lol.

And all kinds of other cherished memories I have with him over these 6 years i’ve known him and to see him in any kind of pain is just unacceptable for me, since he’s brought light in millions of people’s dark days through his music & just being such an all around beautiful person.

Please get well Tyson, I hope to see you soon.

    You and I have talked since you posting this, and we have both had a little light shed on the situation but that doesn’t help our other worries any. I feel like you dove into my head and took out everything I have been thinking. I miss Tyson, and that is because I feel like I haven’t seen the one I know and or recognize in forever. He is still the same old sweet heart he has ever been, but something is different, and I hate it. He just seems so unhappy lately, and shutting himself off from fans just doesn’t seem right, especially after he spent so much time getting to know us on JTV (not kyte >_< haha).

    Everyone gets a little mixed up sometimes, and like you and I were talking about in AIM, I'm sure he will find his way soon, and be the happy, amazing, man we all know and love once again. Being 25 is hard, especially when you start to see that this is the age that everyone is starting to settle down a little bit. But his surroundings are shouting the exact opposite at him so its bound to suck at times.
