Ryan Seacrest returned to work on Tuesday morning and co-hosted Live with Kelly and Ryan and denied suffering a stroke after the American Idol finale. He blamed his slurred speech and what many felt was a drooping eye and side of his face, as his being exhausted and needing a rest. His spokesperson released a statement to People magazine on Monday and also stated that Ryan didn’t have a stroke.
The statement reads as follows.
“Ryan did not have any kind of stroke last night. Like many people right now, Ryan is adjusting to the new normal and finding work-home balance, with the added stress of having to put on live shows from home. Between Live with Kelly and Ryan, American Idol, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and the Disney Family Singalong specials, he has been juggling three to four on-air jobs over the last few weeks and he’s in need of rest. So today, he took a well-deserved day off.”
Despite Ryan’s return (he took Monday off to rest) and the spokesperson statement, many people are not convinced that Ryan is in good health and still believe he suffered a minor stroke. Ryan is also known for being an extremely hard worker and at 46-years-old, Ryan may start to develop or notice some changes in his health due to aging. His fans are still concerned about him and are urging him to get in touch with his health care provider regardless of the statements.

Some pointed out that the spokesperson’s statement referred to Ryan’s extremely hectic schedule and all of the work he is doing and though they suggested he rest, people are saying that is exactly why he may have had a slight stroke.
What do you think? Should Ryan get an examination in addition to resting?
