Eighties pop star Adam Ant has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, it has been reported.
The news follows a series of troubled public appearances from the 55-year-old, including a concert last week where he reportedly unleashed a tirade of abuse at the crowd during a charity gig.
On Thursday, Adam sent a message to fans about his hospital visit.
"Ant fans - please send me postcards at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Fulham Road. Please don't come down here as it may upset the staff who have been really pleasant.
"I am having a well earned rest at Her Majesty's Pleasure and am painting and continuing being an art student. I have a great view and am considering gigs later in the year."
