Amber Riley Collapses on Red Carpet: 5 Other Celebrity Health Scares
“Glee” star Amber Riley has been posing for the cameras ever since she made it big on the hit FOX series. But apparently the flashing lights were just too much for her at a recent Hollywood event where she unexpectedly collapsed in front of the paparazzi.
The incident happened on May 1, during a screening of “Glee” held by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in Los Angeles. Riley was walking the red carpet, conducting interviews with several media outlets when she suddenly fainted in front of the crowd.
E! Online reported that Riley is “fine” and was simply “feeling dizzy” after a full day’s work on the show.
Riley later tweeted about the incident, saying that the flashing lights of the photographers got the best of her.
“Hey guys, I’m okay I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes!” she wrote. “You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes.”
Riley added, “I’d also like to thank the photographers for being do professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing.”
