Vampire Diaries Actress Rushed to Hospital After Collapsing on Vacation
Kat Graham was trying to enjoy some time off at Two Bunch Palms Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, California, last month when s*it hit the fan. The 27-year-old started feeling sick at some point during lunch and ran outside where she allegedly threw up, passed out and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Sources told TMZ she was “extremely paranoid, anxious and seeing things,” which many assumed was due to drug use — more specifically, eating a marijuana-filled brownie.
Although drugs were suspected to be the cause of Kat’s scary episode, her reps confirm that those rumors are “100 percent not true.”
“[Kat] was eating at a restaurant outside the resort and had a violent reaction to food poisoning,” the Vampire Diaries star’s publicist told People magazine. “Kat is not a drug user, and has never been a drug user.”
TMZ obtained audio of the 911 call made after the brunette passed out on the lawn, as well as pictures of her being treated by paramedics.
“One of our guests is unconscious…basically, I guess she was eating lunch and she told us that she wasn’t feeling good and was going to go to the hospital, but now she’s passed out,” one of the resort’s employees told the dispatcher.
While Kat woke up by the time help was called, she was still taken to the hospital to be checked out shortly after.
Thank goodness she’s okay!
