Johnny Hallyday 'stable' after heart problems
Tuesday 28 August 2012
The veteran French pop star, Johnny Hallyday, 69, was said to be "stable" last night after being flown by helicopter to a hospital in the French west indies suffering from an excessively fast heart-beat.
Mr Hallyday's entourage said that he would be released shortly from the hospital at Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe. They denied reports circulating on the intenet that the singer had suffered a heart attack.
His producer, Gilbert Coullier, said that Mr Hallyday had acute bronchitis which had led to tachycardia or an over-rapid heart beat.
During an earlier health scare in December 2009, the singer was twice placed in an artificial coma in a Los Angeles clinic after he suffered complications following a back operation. He resumed his live concert and acting schedule earlier this year.
