Tone Loc

Collapsed on Stage in Atlanta

10/16/2011 9:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tone Loc
Tone Loc collapsed on stage during a performance in Atlanta last night ... TMZ has learned.

Loc's manager tells TMZ he was suffering from exhaustion. Loc was transported to a nearby hospital and given an IV ... but the manager says he is fine now.

TMZ received emails from several people claiming to be present at the concert who said Loc suffered from a seizure, but we cannot confirm this.

The manager added ... Tone was merely exhausted from doing 12 shows in the last two months. It does seem curious that doing a show on average of once every five days would lead to such extreme exhaustion.

Loc's episode comes just a day after rapper Rick Ross was hospitalized TWICE in one day for seizures.

Exhaustion? Why is that never diagnosed in regular people? Sounds like some bad s**t is being passed around.

Whatever "gives" him "wings" probably caused him to collapse.

He has a history of seizures. I was on a flight with him in 2009 from Atlanta to Pensacola, Florida. He had a seizure in baggage claim, went on to perform that night and had another seizure on stage.

If this is real, maybe he's suffering from bad anxiety and could not sleep knowing he had more appearances. Anxiety can lead to a lot of health problems.

He was "merely exhausted from doing 12 shows in the last 2 months"? WHAAAA? That has to be the funniest unintentional humor I've seen today. I could see if he was doing 12 shows a night, or even a week...but 12 over the course of 2 months? HAHAHAHA!
