Dave Chappelle was en-route to the hospital over the weekend. The famous comedian was hospitalized in a San Francisco emergency room Saturday July 14th and was released a few hours later, his publicist has confirmed.

Exhaustion and dehydration cited as the reasons for the hospitalization. No other details have been released but his publicist makes sure that Chappelle is fine, saying "It was exhaustion; he had been traveling. He's fine."

This isn't the first time Chappelle has sought help for exhaustion. He made headlines in 2005 after he broke his $50 million deal with Comedy Central to continue "Chappelle's Show," reportedly checking into a mental health center in South Africa. The comedian, in fact, later told Time magazine that he had been in South Africa visiting friends and was taking a "spiritual retreat" after pressure and creative differences arose while writing his self-titled comedy sketch show.
