Michaels was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of six (as Michaels later attested in the Behind the Music special, backstage photos of the singer injecting insulin led many to think that he was a heroin addict). When he was a child, his family relocated to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, where he attended Mechanicsburg High School.
Bret Michaels dated and later became engaged to actress and singer Susie Hatton. Michaels and Hatton dated from 1988 to 1993. Bret produced Hatton's debut album Body and Soul in 1991. Susie Hatton is featured in Poison's "Fallen Angel" music video released in 1988. Bret has two daughters with Kristi Lynn Gibson whom he dated from 1994 to 2005. Raine Elizabeth Sychak was born on May 20, 2000, and Jorja Bleu Sychak was born May 5, 2005. As of 2005, Michaels and Gibson are separated and share custody of their children.
Michaels had a short but notorious relationship with Pamela Anderson. An abridged version of an explicit sex tape the couple made appeared on the Internet and was released on DVD on September 7, 2005 by Metro Studios. Michaels later stopped the sexually explicit tape from being distributed, although the "teaser" version of it is still widely available on the Internet.
Michaels is a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League and the Edmonton Oilers. He has a personalized guitar bearing the team's logo, and played the national anthem at Three Rivers Stadium. His favorite player was Jack Lambert, and Michaels has been a member of fan club "Lambert's Lunatics."
He starred in Don't Forget the Lyrics on May 1, 2008.
