Given all the problems plaguing his Broadway show Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, reports of Bono being hospitalized due to heart palpitations didn't sound too terribly surprising.

Fortunately, though, a rep for the U2 frontman insists all those rumors are false.

"Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare," said a spokesperson for the singer in a statement. "Reports of being rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France."

That being said, the 51-year-old rock icon did pay a visit to Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco last week. However, according to the spokesperson, it was for nothing more than "a routine check-up."

Phew. It's a beautiful day indeed.
