Rosie O’Donnell pulled out of Madonna screening after health scare

Comedienne Rosie O’Donnell cancelled her appearance at the New York City premiere of her friend Madonna’s tour documentary on Tuesday (18Jun13) after suffering a health scare. The funnywoman was due to join her A League of Their Own co-star onstage for a question-and-answer session at the Paris Theatre in Manhattan ahead of a screening of new concert movie Madonna: The MDNA Tour.
However, O’Donnell pulled out at the last minute after receiving a phone call from doctors, leaving Madonna to host the event on her own.
O’Donnell’s spokesperson tells the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six, “Rosie had a suspicious CAT (computer assisted tomography) scan (that had to be) checked out,” and adds that the star was “given a clean bill of health” on Wednesday (19Jun13) morning.
The funnywoman has not released any further information about her scare. The 51 year old suffered a heart attack last August (12) and subsequently lost 12 pounds (5.4 kilograms) after revamping her diet.
