Judy Sheindlin Rushed To Hospital With Stomach Pains
Judy Sheindlin, widely known as Judge Judy, was rushed to hospital today with stomach pains after complaining to her TV crew she was "not feeling well."
A receptionist at the Judge Judy show, Vanessa Pineda, confirmed to KTLA that Judy Sheindlin, 68, left the studios, but described the incident as a "family emergency."
"The judge was feeling nauseous and had some intestinal discomfort and decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out," Judge Judy's rep, Gary Rosen, told RadarOnline.com.
Judge Judy later told TMZ: "I'm just exhausted, and my body was telling me it need a day to chill."
The 68-year-old judge was taken from the KTLA Studios in Hollywood, but is expected to make a full recovery.
"She was just sitting on the stand during her show taping and she started saying things that didn't make any sense," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.
The TV star said, "I need to stop, I'm not feeling well."
Mrs. Sheindlin was apparently only two cases into her taping when her unusual behaviour prompted her to stop, and a crew member dialled 911.
The fiery legal eagle told Harvey Levin: "I was feeling funky this morning... funky enough that I knew someone should give a gander over what I got."
She added, "I'm really fine. I wanted to go back to work this afternoon. I'm exhausted. I'm just tired. A lot of things just zoned together, including the bad news of the world."
