British pop veteran George Michael suffered another frightening health scare prior to his dramatic hospitalisation last week (ends25May14), according to a U.K. report.

The former Wham! star hit headlines this week (beg26May14) after it emerged paramedics had been called to his north London home last Thursday (22May14).

He was hospitalised and later released, and a representative for the singer confirms he is now "well and resting", according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

However, editors at the publication report the scare is the second this year (14) for the star, as he was previously found unconscious at home after collapsing. Police officers are said to have discovered the ailing singer at the property.

A source tells the newspaper, "George's latest collapse is the second time this year that emergency services have attended his home. It seems as if there is barely a month that goes by at the moment without him having problems."
