John Legend
 was feeling under the weather following a stretch of extensive travel ... so he took himself to the emergency room this morning to get checked out , but TMZ has learned he just has a bad case of the flu.

A rep for Legend tells TMZ the singer recently returned from a trip to South Africa (among other places) and was feeling under the weather. So Legend went to a New York City area hospital where he was treated for flu-like symptoms. 

Legend was prescribed a healthy dose of rest.

His rep tells TMZ, "He's been traveling a lot and must have picked up a flu-bug somewhere along the way, but he's fine and resting at home now."

That's the worse thing about traveling by air. You can pick up anything from anywhere. Get well soon.

John Legend must be just giddy about having the flu. Now the fans he is known for rudely ignoring have a real reason to stay away from him. I think I will let my wallet ignore him as well.

He has to go the Emergency Room for "feeling under the weather," which turns out to be the flu? You mean he doesn't even have a doctor on-call to check on him first? Really?

rrrriiiiiigggghhhtttt - because flying by private jet and first class and staying in suites in luxury hotels is so exhausting. AIDS and he should go ahead and step out of the closet.

I guess when you're rich you can afford to go to the emergency room for the flu.

I hope this guy feels better soon. I'm not sure why his condition showed up on TMZ though. Was he famous at one time?
