Lenny Kravitz hospitalized in Miami
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rock star Lenny Kravitz was admitted to a Miami hospital on Monday suffering from severe bronchitis, a spokeswoman for the singer said.
The 43-year-old musician had been suffering from a series of severe respiratory tract infections in tandem with the flu since mid-January, and the illness has evolved into bronchitis.
"Due to extreme dehydration and fatigue, doctors were unable to control it with outpatient treatment and advised the singer to check into the hospital. He was taken this morning to the emergency room at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami for immediate treatment," the spokeswoman said in a statement.
Details on his condition and expected length of stay were not immediately available.
His illness forced him to postpone a trip to Europe to promote his album "It Is Time For a Love Revolution," which was released last week.
Kravitz, famed for his hippie-influenced lyrics, rose to fame in the 1990s with such tunes as "Are You Gonna Go My Way" and the Grammy-winning "Fly Away."
