Tracy Morgan has been hospitalised after collapsing at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday (22.01.12).
The '30 Rock' star was rushed to the Park City Medical Center in Park City, Utah after he passed out following the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards dinner, where he accepted the Spotlight Initiative Award, with his representative blaming "altitude and exhaustion".
A statement read: "Tracy was hospitalised from a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention. He is with his fiancÃ©e [Megan Wallover] and grateful to the Park City Medical Centre for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 per cent false."
It had been reported that the 43-year-old actor seemed out of control at dinner, where he is said to have been shouting and falling over but a spokeswoman for the hospital said no drugs or alcohol were found in his system.
Tracy - who is diabetic and received a kidney transplant two years ago - is a recovering alcoholic who was arrested twice for driving under the influence in 2005 and 2006.
Along with being honoured for the award, Tracy also attended a screening of his latest movie 'Predisposed' in which he stars alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Melissa Leo.
