Rocker Lenny Kravitz was taken to a Miami hospital on Monday suffering from an extreme case of bronchitis, a spokesperson for the singer said.

The 43-year old singer had been suffering from a series of severe respiratory tract infections stemming from the flu since mid-January, and the illness evolved into bronchitis.

In a statement obtained by the A.P., the spokeswoman said, "Due to extreme dehydration and fatigue, doctors were unable to control it with outpatient treatment and advised the singer to check into the hospital. He was taken this morning to the emergency room at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami for immediate treatment."

Details on Kravitz’ condition and his expected stay were not immediately available, however his illness forced him to postpone a trip to Europe, where he was set to promote his new album It Is Time for a Love Revolution, which was released last week.


Kravitz rose to fame in the 1990s with such tunes as "Are You Gonna Go My Way" and "Fly Away," for which he won a Grammy Award. He has one daughter with former Cosby Show actress Lisa Bonet.
