George Michael was rushed to hospital after collapsing at home.
Reports last night state that George Michael was dramatically rushed to hospital after he fell ill at his home.
Paramedics arrived at 8am in two ambulances at his North London home, following a 999 call made by a friend.
They spent four hours with the former Wham! star, 50, before leaving at around noon with George on board. He was then taken to hospital for further treatment.
Last night his agent refused to say what had caused his mystery collapse and she also declined to comment on whether the star was still in hospital
A statement said only: “George Michael was in hospital for routine tests.”
George, who nearly died of pneumonia in 2011 and has battled depression and drug addiction, fell ill at home last Thursday.
An Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called just before 8am. We sent two ambulance crews and staff treated a man, who was taken to hospital.”
Get well soon, George!
