AceShowbiz - Actor Quinton Aaron has been hospitalised for a serious upper respiratory infection.

"The Blind Side" star took to Instagram on Tuesday, June 18 to reveal he was seeking medical help for an undisclosed issue, although he assured fans he was OK.

On Monday, doctors discovered his blood pressure was high, and had him admitted for an overnight stay for further tests.

"I thought it was a regular cold but I couldn't shake it...," he told TMZ, "but then they (medics) ran some tests, did some blood work, and they told me that I had an upper respiratory infection and that my bronchitis had flared up again."

Aaron is expected to be discharged from the hospital later on Wednesday.
