TORONTO — Singer George Michael was taken to hospital by ambulance after reportedly collapsing in his London home.

Details of the emergency run on May 22 were only made public Wednesday.

Michael, 50, was taken to hospital after two ambulances responded to an emergency call from someone in his home.

His agent told UK newspaper The Sun that the singer “was in hospital for routine tests but there is nothing further to say.”

It was a year ago this month that Michael was airlifted to hospital after he fell out of a moving car on a London highway and suffered a head injury.

Michael has a long history of drug-related emergencies. In 2010 he was sentenced to eight weeks in jail after crashing his Range Rover into a London storefront. He pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of drugs.

In 2009 he was arrested on suspicion of DUI after crashing into the back of a truck. A year earlier, he was accused of possession of drugs after police found him loitering in a public washroom.

Michael was sentenced in 2006 to community service after he was convicted of driving under the influence of drugs. Police found him passed out in his car twice in only a few months.

In March, Michael insisted he has “completely stopped” smoking pot.
