Mariah Carey hospital

Mariah Carey was hospitalised in New York after becoming ill in the early hours of Wednesday morning according to reports.

Carey, 45, is said to be suffering from a severe bout of flu and is hooked up to an IV, TMZ have claimed.

The singer was reportedly so dehydrated and ill that her team called for the emergency services after initially complaining about feeling unwell on Tuesday night.

Mariah had been at Pier 1 in New York on Tuesday.

She’s expected to be released from hospital later today.

No word yet if she’ll have to cancel her Hot 97’s ‘Hot for the Holidays’ concert in New Jersey on Saturday.

She must be feeling better as the star is already tweeting and posted a message on her account on Wednesday about how festive she was feeling.

She wrote: “Went to the pier1popup party, now I’m feeling festive and ready to decorate”

If she was feeling ill, the singing legend showed no sign of it on Tuesday night, hitting Pier 1 in a vibrant red dress.

The star, who is reportedly gearing up to spend the holidays with new boyfriend James Packer, looked sensational in the eye-catching ensemble, which she teamed with black tights and sky high heels.

A rep for Mariah Carey has been contacted regarding the story.
