Amy Winehouse was rushed to hospital after reportedly collapsing from a drugs overdose yesterday (08.08.07).
The shockingly thin 'Rehab' singer was taken to London's University College Hospital by her frantic husband Blake Fielder-Civil at 1am, after she passed out at their home following a suspected drink and drugs binge.
The semi-conscious 23-year-old star was immediately treated by concerned doctors who administered an adrenaline shot and pumped her stomach.
A witness told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "She was falling over and stumbling around. She didn't look well at all.
"Her husband was holding her up because she couldn't really stand on her own.
"The nurse must have been really worried about her, because even though there was a big crowd of people in the waiting area, she was rushed straight through."
Blake spent yesterday dashing between the couple's north London home in Camden and the nearby hospital.
Amy was discharged last night following tests.
Close friends have feared for Amy's health for months, and have spoken of their concern over the notorious hellraiser's wild partying and "car-crash lifestyle".
Amy's record company Island Records deny she overdosed, and claim she was admitted for "severe exhaustion".
The singer - who yesterday received three MTV Video Music Award nominations - was forced to cancel a festival appearance in Oslo, Norway, last night and also pulled out of another festival in Denmark on Friday (10.08.07).
