Stefania D'Alessandro/Getty Images for amfAR(NEW YORK) -- Lindsay Lohan was rushed to a New York City emergency room Sunday night following an asthma attack.

“Lindsay was treated and released, and is doing fine,” her rep Steve Honig told ABC News in an email, adding that she was treated for asthma.

Lohan has had an eventful time in the Big Apple.

Last week, she was charged with a hit-and-run for allegedly striking 34-year-old restaurant cook Jose Rodriguez with her Porsche, according to WABC-TV.

Lohan’s publicist called the furor over the actress’ hit-and-run “much ado about nothing.”

“While some of the facts are still being gathered, it appears that this is much ado about nothing,” Lohan’s publicist said in an email to ABC News. “We are confident this matter will be cleared up in the coming weeks, and the claims being made against Lindsay will be proven untrue.”

The trailer for her new film, Liz & Dick, was released last week.

In the trailer, Lohan, who plays legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor, is seen drinking, fighting and smoking. The movie is set to premiere on Lifetime in November.

Report: ‘American Idol’ Contestant Phil Phillips Rushed to Hospital

Michael Becker / FOX(LOS ANGELES) -- Phil Phillips, the guitar-playing American Idol contestant who some odds makers have picked as their top choice to win this year’s competition, was rushed to a medical facility with abdominal pains Thursday morning, according to TMZ.

On Wednesday night, Phillips performed Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” on the show.

The website reported that Phillips was complaining of “intense pain” in his stomach, and that people close to the singer suspect that it was caused by gallstones.  A source at the pawn shop in Georgia where Phillips worked before “Idol” told TMZ that Phillips was hospitalized in January for that condition.

Fox told ABC News Radio that it had no comment on the TMZ report.

Contestants needing emergency medical attention seem to be as much a part of any American Idol season as Randy Jackson saying “Yo, dawg.”  Casey Abrams, Crystal Bowersox, Lauren Alaina and David Cook are just a few of the contestants who’ve had health crises during the competition.

Garth Brooks Wins in Trial Against Hospital

Ron Hoskins/Getty Images(YUKON, Okla.) -- Garth Brooks was awarded $500,000 along with an additional $150,000 for fraud in the trial against Integris Canadian Valley Hospital Tuesday night.

Jurors had begun deliberations Tuesday afternoon. After the verdict, they returned to deliberate about punitive damages, reported ABC affiliate KTUL.

This is likely a happy moment for Brooks, who tearfully remembered his mother in his testimony this week: “She was my budd…I was her biggest fan,” and, “If anybody met her, [they] would have gotten to love her.”

Colleen Brooks, his mother, lost her battle with cancer in 1999. In 2005, Garth Brooks donated $500,000 to the Integris Canadian Valley Hospital, in Yukon, Okla., for what he claimed he intended would be a woman’s center named after his mother.

The center was never built and Brooks sued in 2009. Brooks claimed he had a verbal agreement with the hospital and was shown mock-ups of the center.

Integris Canadian Valley Hospital insisted there were no conditions to the donation.

Garth Brooks Sues Hospital over His $500,000 Donation

Ron Hoskins/Getty Images(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- Perhaps inspired by the lyrics of his hit song, “Do What You Gotta Do,” country music star Garth Brooks has sued his hometown hospital for allegedly not using his $500,000 donation for what he says he and the hospital agreed it would.

The singer says he made the donation to Integris Canadian Valley Regional Hospital of Yukon, Okla., in 2005, after the hospital promised to name a building after his mother, Colleen Brooks, who died of cancer in 1999.

Brooks says hospital officials had courted him for two years, soliciting a donation to honor his late mother. He says they showed him mockups of a building in the hospital complex bearing his mother’s name in neon lights and planned a ribbon-cutting ceremony introducing the Colleen Brooks building to the public.

But then, Brooks’ attorneys say, almost three years after the donation, the hospital told the singer his donation would be, “used for what Integris had ‘earmarked’ the money for, without further discussion.”

His suit seeks the full $500,000 donation back.

In court filings, the hospital says his donation was “anonymous and unconditional” and that Brooks changed his tune by adding conditions to the gift after it was given.

“Unfortunately, talks broke down or did not continue or Mr. Brooks was not satisfied with the options we were offering, and that’s when he decided to sue,” hospital spokesman Hardy Watkins said Tuesday before the trial began.

Brooks’ spokeswoman Tuesday described the musician as “stunned and hurt” by the hospital’s failure to name anything for his mother.

Brooks made an appearance Tuesday afternoon in an Oklahoma courtroom where jury selection for his case was finalized.  The judge swore in 12 jurors and planned to pick an alternate. Opening statements in the trial are scheduled to begin Wednesday.
