BRET MICHAELS' meltdown has been a point of online discussion for over 24 hours now, though nobody really knows quite whether it happened or not. In case you hadn't heard, Michaels was the first competitor fired by Donald Trump on the premiere of 'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.' It was shock result, though said the Poison rocker completely broke down afterwards. "Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired," said a source, "He couldn't believe it that he was let go so quickly. It was brutal to watch him freaking out the way he did." The insider said Bret was certain he was going to win for a second time.

The report is at odds with new information given to Zap2It's Molly Chance, which reports of there being no "meltdown" after the Celebrity Apprentice taping. A production insider says Bret "wasn't stoked" about getting the boot, though left the show with his head held high. "Bret was not happy to be fired, but did not have a meltdown," said the insider, who noted that Michaels was trying to earn some cash for a cause close to his heart, the American Diabetes Foundation. His team-mate Omarosa Manigault appeared to conspire to get him eliminated from the show, which hurt Michaels the most. 

Michaels - who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes - brought in $640,000 for his chosen foundation after winning season three of the reality show.
