PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) – Singer Bette Midler, suffering from exhaustion and an upset stomach, collapsed offstage during aÂ performance, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday.
“Ms. Midler had a good night and her condition is stable,” said Pontiac General Hospital spokeswoman Rita Johnson. “She has a mild gastrointestinal disorder and is exhausted. She’s expected to be released in a day or two.”
Ms. Midler, 40, was completing the final night of a three-day stint at Pine Knob Music Theater when she felt faint Tuesday night. She left the stage during the song “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” collapsed and was taken away in an ambulance. . .
Riverside Ambulance Service said its paramedics arrived at Pine Knob about 9:30 p.m.
A spokesman said no emergency aid was provided “because there were too many people around her to do anything. My guys said she was just fine, but she was exhausted.”
