One of the stars of the original “Star Wars” trilogy was hospitalized after an unusual incident aboard a cruise ship, and video of her performance — included below — has been making the rounds on the Internet.
TMZ.com reports: “Carrie Fisher was hospitalized following a bizarre performance on board a Caribbean cruise ship last week — and her rep tells TMZ, it was all caused by the actress’ bipolar disorder.”
The incident took place in the Caribbean aboard the Holland America Eurodam.
The video shows Fisher “slurring a couple off-key songs. Her dog even POOPS AND PEES on the stage while she’s singing. It’s pretty nuts,” TMZ reports. “There were reports Carrie — who was featured on the cruise as a ‘surprise’ celebrity guest — was wasted at the time of the show … but her rep says the on-stage breakdown was caused by Fisher’s bipolar disorder.”
The report quotes Fisher’s rep saying: "There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder. She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now."
TMZ adds: “Carrie — a recovering drug addict — has publicly discussed her bipolar disorder in the past. The rep says it’s unclear if Carrie will return to perform on the cruise ship again.”
