Carrie Fisher hospitalized after bipolar episode
Last Updated: 111 days ago
Actress CARRIE FISHER has been discharged from hospital after suffering a bipolar episode aboard a cruise ship last week (begs18Feb13).
The Star Wars veteran was performing on the Holland America Eurodam in the Caribbean when she reportedly began slurring the words to a song she was performing - and then refused to halt the show while her pet dog relieved himself onstage.
Audience members assumed Fisher was just intoxicated, but now a representative for the 56 year old has spoken out to clarify the reports, revealing the actress was having a psychiatric breakdown as a result of her battle with bipolar disorder.
The spokesperson tells TMZ.com, "There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher's bipolar disorder. She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now."
The episode comes at a bad time for Fisher, who is reportedly in negotiations to reprise her Princess Leia character for the upcoming Star Wars franchise update.
