The decade's most triggering comedy
Singer Madonna was reportedly revived with Narcan before being transported to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at a nearby hospital late last month.
The “Material Girl” singer was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital, suffering from what her longtime manager Guy O’Seary described as a “serious bacterial infection.” According to a new report published Wednesday by RadarOnline, the infection may have been more serious than even he let on.
Sources reportedly told RadarOnline that the performer had to be revived with a Narcan injection when she was first discovered. While Narcan is most commonly used to treat narcotics overdoses, in Madonna’s case, it was believed to have been used for an entirely different reason: to reverse septic shock as a result of severe infection.
The sources did not indicate that the singer showed any signs of drug abuse or overdose, and her representatives have thus far declined to comment.
She has been released from the hospital, however, according to longtime friend Rosie O’Donnell — and while she is still suffering the effects of the infection, she is on the road to recovery.
“She is recovering at home — she is very strong in general,” O’Donnell said of her “A League of Their Own” co-star.
Madonna was set to embark on her “Celebration” tour — a global trek that was to celebrate 40 years in the music business and include music from her first album to her most recent — but that has been postponed until the singer has had some time to recover.
“Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected,” Madonna’s talent manager Guy Oseary explained via Instagram. “At this time, we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”
