British pop singer Rita Ora -- who had the hit song, "R.I.P." -- collapsed on the set of her photo shoot in Miami Beach today ... and was rushed to a hospital by ambulance according to photographers on the scene.

Photos show the 22-year old singer/model/actress -- eyes closed -- being unloaded from the ambulance on a stretcher ... attended by emergency personnel.  So far, no word on what may have caused her to collapse.

Ora -- who famously dated Rob Kardashian last year -- was reportedly preparing for her photo shoot on the beach near the SoHo Beach House hotel when she fainted in her makeup trailer.

We've reached out to Rita's people -- so far, no word back.

2:01 PM PT  Ora's doctor, David Farcy, tells TMZ Rita was treated for heat exhaustion and dehydration.  She's been discharged and Dr. Farcy says she's fine. She flashed a big smile to fans when she returned to her hotel from the hospital. Rita was in the middle of a photo shoot for Madonna's Material Girl campaign in Miami when she was taken ill.

I thought she had died until I read the "article." I've never heard any of hey songs so I had no idea that she sang a song called R.I.P. Anyway hope she feels better.

In all honesty, a bunch of the posters in here should go back to school and take some reading lessons again.
The title of the article says 'R.I.P' singer, not RIP singer. The apostrophes make a whole difference!.
PAY attention to what you read!!!!.

Why is it when one of these "celebrities" passes out it is due to dehydration and heat exhaustion? Why aren't the drugs they took ever the cause? I have a very physical and stressful job, one that would kill Tom Cruse (LOL), and I have never passed out. Why is that? I guess I don't work as hard as an actor.
