Amy Winehouse


Amy Winehouse's health is, once again, in doctors' hands.

The troubled chanteuse was rushed to a London hospital Monday night after suffering an adverse reaction to medication, E! News has confirmed.

"Please be advised that Amy Winehouse suffered a reaction to medication at home this evening and was taken to the hospital," the singer's rep, Tracey Miller, said. "Doctors have advised that she will be kept under observation overnight and is likely to be released tomorrow."

Winehouse was reportedly admitted to University College Hospital in Bloomsbury.

Eyewitnesses outside the 24-year-old songbird's townhouse saw her being escorted from the premises in a wheelchair, according to SplashNewsOnline, which first reported the latest twist in Winehouse's physical-stature saga.

The aforementioned emergency comes a week after Winehouse learned that beloved hubby Blake Fielder-Civil would be spending at least 18 more months behind bars for witness-tampering and barely a month after she spent a week undergoing various tests following a fainting spell.

Winehouse's rep, clarifying her father's initial remarks to the press about his little girl having emphysema, said that the Grammy winner was showing early stage symptoms of the chronic respiratory disease.

"Obviously, if she doesn't quit smoking, it's going to get worse, like everyone else...with patience, her lungs will recover completely," Mitch Winehouse told BBC Radio 1.

"With no more inhalation of smoke of any kind, she's going to be absolutely fine."

While photographic evidence shows that she hasn't exactly been taking it easy, Winehouse was apparently healthy enough to perform at Nelson Mandela's 90th-birthday extravaganza and England's Glastonbury festival last month.
