David Cook Rushed To Hospital After Show – He’s Fine Now

David Cook was rushed to the hospital after last night’s show. According to MTV, he was experiencing heart palpitations, and high blood pressure.

TMZ reported that Cook had not been feeling well all day and his condition got worse after his performance. Show medics examined him on set and decided that his blood pressure was “far too high, ” according to the site. He was encouraged to go to the hospital during the show, but chose to stick around until the Dolly Parton-themed hour was over.

David reportedly suffers from high blood pressure, was driven to the hospital by car, treated and released a few hours later. An unnamed source told TMZ that David has been under extra stress lately because his brother, who is battling cancer, had a setback.

TMZ also reported that this isn’t the first time Cook has had trouble on the set, referring to a show earlier in the season when, just before his performance, he collapsed and said he could not go on, but then got it together in time to sing on stage.
