Say it isn't so, Amy Winehouse is hospitalized, again. The troubled singer was rushed to a London hospital Monday night, July 28 after suffering an adverse reaction to medication, reports claimed. She was admitted to University College Hospital in Bloomsbury.
Onlookers who happened to be outside her north London home claimed to have seen her being escorted from the building to a waiting ambulance in a wheelchair. She was wrapped in a blanket and given oxygen. Her father Mitch Winehouse was by her side. Her spokesman Chris Goodman said nothing about her condition, except that "She was in a wheelchair, but conscious" adding "No one was panicking."
A spokesperson for London Ambulance Service also declined to comment further on the unfortunate, simply confirmed, "We were called at approximately 8.40 P.M. to an address in NW1 to reports of an adult female taken unwell. We sent an ambulance and a fast response car and the patient has been taken to hospital."
Amy's representative Tracey Miller confirmed the songbird's hospital visit in a statement that read "Please be advised that Amy Winehouse suffered a reaction to medication at home this evening and was taken to the hospital. Doctors have advised that she will be kept under observation overnight and is likely to be released tomorrow."
Amy's latest hospitalization comes hot on the heels of reports that his husband has been sentenced to 27 months in jail for assault and obstructing justice. He's expected to be freed from jail December later this year for he already served nine months of his term awaiting trial.
It was the second time in as many months that Amy has been in the hospital. She was admitted to a London clinic last month after collapsing at home, and it was conformed at that time that she had developed an early stage of emphysema from smoking cigarettes and crack cocaine.
