Lindsay Lohan health scare

Paramedics say nothing wrong with Lindsay Lohan after health scare

Lindsay Lohan health scare

Gallery: Lindsay Lohan's troubles

Lindsay Lohan is okay. She’s not gravely ill. She’s not in a hospital. She’s not, heaven forbid, on the verge of meeting her maker. There is nothing wrong with LiLo, well except for the fact that she was born Lindsay Lohan…

As of Friday afternoon the Herbie Fully Loaded star was happily humming along mustering her best Elizabeth Taylor impression on the set of her cable TV biopic Liz & Dick.

But there was a scare there for a while Friday morning when LiLo’s health and state of mind once again became the stuff of tabloid headlines after news broke that paramedics rushed to her hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey, Calif., Friday morning after hotel staff found her “unresponsive” (TMZ) and/or “unconscious” (the London tabloids).

As far as we can piece it together this is what happened:

LiLo called the folks on her movie set Friday morning to say she felt lousy and exhausted. Her production team sent a doctor to her hotel. En route, the doc called the hotel and asked that someone look in on the actor.

That’s when a hapless hotel worker found her “unresponsive” and/or “unconscious.”

TMZ says the hotel then called 911, while LiLo’s rep says the production team called emergency services.

Seems paramedics checked her out, found nothing physically wrong with LiLo and left. (Either with or without asking her for an autograph or a candid iPhone photo.)

Sources tell TMZ LiLo’s has been a grueling work schedule and she’s simply pooped.
