Ring the Alarm! Medics Sent to Beyonce's Trailer

3/12/2008 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just before midnight yesterday, paramedics were called to Beyonce's trailer on the New Jersey set of her new film "Cadillac Records" -- but it was her mom, Tina Knowles, who needed the medical attention.


TMZ spoke exclusively to Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, who said medics were called because Tina has the flu and began to experience shortness of breath. Paging Janet Jackson!

Matthew tells us Tina's blood pressure was a little high and she was checked out by medics -- but she was not transported.

just wondering    

Patti, the flu is awfull, it usually takes a couple of wks for the vaccine to take effect, since u weren't symptomatic at time of innoculation, u most likely had the virus in u incubating at that time and obviously didn't know it...pure co-incidence that it came to fruition after the flu shot..it was festering anyways and nothing u could have done to stop it.

no way, perhaps your screen name should be 'no weigh' because you 'no weigh' less than a size 14 honey. hmmm...me thinks you and little miss kelli may be one in the same. your styles are frighteningly similar.

now no weigh, perhaps you should head to wal-mart and get a richard simmons video - does he still have those meal cards?

and beyonce honey, hope mom gets better. but this is surely a sign from god to quit 'designing' those tacky clothes! you're no vera wang. get well soon! and hope kelli and no weigh get the flu next! they need a little detoxing.

UnInformed    

I know from personal experience that this Flu this year is ultra nasty. And, they say in the medical community that this flu was not covered in the shot. My husband, myself, my youngest daughter and my son all had it last week. It started with my husband and withing about 3 hours of the symptoms, we ended up taking him to the E.R. as well. He too thought he was having a heart attack. It causes major shortness of breath, pain in the arm from caughing, and burning in the chest. So, I can see how these people are alarmed. My thoughts are will all those with the flu this year, finally by day 5... you again feel human.

LOL    

Celebs are often detached and unaware of their frailties and mortality because their ego is often times twisted. So when they are struck w/ an illness or reminded that they are infact capable of being broken down & helpless.... they panic. How are these popular women catching a flu bug news or even gossip worthy is beyond my understanding. Billions without medical insurance, you can't feel sorry for them... and they're definately not worth arguing with others about. There are other variables far more important than some broads coming down w/ the damned flu.

MOVING ON!!!!

There are 3 flu strains floating around that are not covered by the vaccination this year. 50 children actually have died this year in our state due to the flu. The flu virus is nothing to mess with.

Gracie size O or whatever your name is. I think you do not exist! No one can be such a jerk and live! No one has to brag
about being a size O who cares! It's what's in your heart and head that matters. Let's not forget the checkbook. Bet that's
a fat O too. You make me sick. Bitioch! Now go take your skank size O and wash! BTW, but something where your heart should be like a cheeseburger!
Oh, yes, I am a perfect size 4. Dare to dream! The girls mother had a breathing problem. Are
we jealous becuase we are Big fat O on every level including the brains. Person grown up! Shiz!

I think you do this just to get a rise out of people Grace! Well not again. I think you are a size 18 and wish in one hand
and dream out of another. You want people to hate themselves because you think being a O is perfect. No baby that's
not the way it goes. Get HELP!
