Mary-Kate Olsen has been hospitalised with a kidney infection.
The 21-year-old actress was rushed to a New York hospital emergency room yesterday (19.11.07), sparking fears she may be battling an eating disorder again.
The star’s representative Nicole Caruso said yesterday: ‘Mary-Kate has a kidney infection. She was admitted to the emergency room earlier today. She is resting comfortably and will be released in the next day or so.’
Mary-Kate – who checked into Utah’s Cirque Lodge rehab facility to be treated for an eating disorder in 2004, dismissing claims it was for a drug problem – recently insisted she was feeling healthy.
She said at the time: ‘Mentally, physically, I feel pretty on top of my game right now.’
Last year, Lindsay Lohan revealed she developed a kidney infection while she was suffering from bulimia. Mary-Kate, who along with her twin sister earned $40 million 2006, previously admitted she still has issues with her body and is reluctant to be seen in a bikini.
She said: ‘I would love to be able to swim in the ocean in Malibu. But that is asking for a bikini shot. That’s inviting something that I don’t want to happen. I don’t need to be on a ‘Who’s Skinny, Who’s Fat, Who’s Looking Healthy, Who’s Not Eating?’ list.’
