British singer George Michael rushed to hospital after emergency call
British singer-songwriter George Michael was taken to hospital by ambulance after falling ill last week, his manager revealed last night.
He told The Sun last night: "George Michael was in hospital for routine tests but there is nothing further to say."
The London Ambulance Service said: "Two emergency ambulances were reportedly sent to the 80s pop superstar's north London home early on Thursday last week."
The 50-year-old was said to have suffered a "mystery collapse" which subsequently led a worried friend to call 999.
Witnesses said the ambulances left four hours after they arrived, with Michael on board. He was taken to a London hospital for emergency treatment.
Mail Online reported that fans have already taken to Twitter to voice their concerns for the pop icon.
One user wrote, "What's happened to my beloved @GeorgeMichael? reports coming in say he's been rushed to hospital :-( (sic)" while another hoped "nothing serious" had happened to Michael.
