Actress was ‘treated and released,’ her rep tells People.
Lindsay Lohan was hospitalized Sunday night for a lung infection, TMZ reports.
According to the site, Lohan has been telling friends for weeks that she’s suffering from “walking pneumonia,” and when things got especially bad over the weekend, she was rushed to New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital.
People reports that the actress was hit hard by the effects of asthma. Lohan’s rep told the mag she was “treated and released, and is doing fine.”
This is just the latest health scare for Lohan, who was taken to the hospital in early June after smashing her Porsche into an 18-wheeler on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica, California. The following week, paramedics were called to her penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, California, where she was filming the Lifetime movie “Liz & Dick.” EMTs left the scene without the actress, and her reps insisted that she was suffering from “exhaustion and dehydration” and said Lohan was actually napping after a grueling stretch of shooting.Lohan also made headlines just last week after a reported hit-and run with a pedestrian in New York. In a statement to MTV News, her rep said that while the accident was still being investigated, he believed Lohan would eventually be found innocent. “While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing. We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue,” her rep noted in the statement. Lohan was later charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
