The Bachelor: Michelle Money’s Daughter on Life Support Following a Skateboarding Accident
Today, Michelle Money posted a shocking picture of her daughter Brielle Money lying in a hospital bed. In the photo, the young teen is hooked up to life support systems. The former contestant of The Bachelor’s Season 15 shared some tragic news. She says Brielle’s on life support after having a “terrible skateboarding accident”.
Brielle Money suffered a very serious brain trauma and also a fractured skull”. But she’s also in a “medically induced coma”. This should help “relieve pressure on her brain”.
Also, Michelle is asking everyone to pray for her daughter who “needs support and healing at this time”.
It seems as though Brielle was skateboarding without a helmet because The Bachelor alum also gave some advice. “ALWAYS MAKE [YOUR CHILDREN] WEAR A HELMET. ALWAYS” and then wrote “EVEN WHEN [YOUR CHILDREN] PUSH BACK,”
Reportedly, neighbors called 911 after finding Brielle, which ultimately saved her life.
Michelle Money Shares Heartbreaking Video Update
Several hours after the initial announcement, Bachelor star Michelle Money uploaded a video message. She recorded it from a cot in Brielle’s hospital room before “trying” to get some rest. In it, she revealed that only one parent can be in the room at a time. This is due to coronavirus precautions. But she did say that Brielle is currently “stable”.
Brielle’s father is Michelle’s ex-husband Ryan Money, who she met on Bachelor in Paradise. She’s currently seeing golfer Mike Weir, who has been extremely supportive as well. Although she doesn’t want to leave Brielle, Michelle says, “her dad needs time, too”.

Broken hearted that Brielles dad cannot be in here with me. He has been sitting in his car in the parking lot not knowing what else to do. Only one parent at a time per 24 hour period due to the virus. I do not think I am capable of leaving her but her dad needs time too. I’m a mess. She is doing well. Stable and pushing. This surgery will be very helpful. Thank you for the prayers. We feel them. We see them working. Thank you for the messages. All of them. I see them all. So does Ryan and Mike and our families. I’ll keep updating. #prayforbrie
The Bachelor: Brielle Needs Emergency Procedure
Michelle Money also shared that her daughter needs surgery to relieve the pressure in her brain. It’s likely a craniectomy, which is when part of the skull is removed to lessen pressure after the brain swells. It’s very common after a traumatic brain injury. Hopefully, it helps improve Brielle’s condition.
Our thoughts are with Brielle, Michelle, and their loved ones during this terrible time.
