Kat Graham Alleged Pot Brownie Trip Ends With 911 Call, Hospital Trip

3/19/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0317-kat-graham-edibles-paramedics-high-TMZ_01update_graphic_red_barKat's reps say she merely had food poisoning from eating at a restaurant outside of the resort.update_grey_gray_barKat Graham got way too high, according to witnesses, and ended up in the hospital ... TMZ has learned.

"The Vampire Diaries" actress and singer was visiting Two Bunch Palms Resort & Spa near Palm Springs last month when she allegedly started throwing up and passed out on a lawn. It wasn't food or booze that put her there though -- sources at the resort tell us she'd downed a cannabis brownie earlier in the day.

We're told Kat ran out of the resort's restaurant saying she didn't feel well and needed to go to the hospital. She puked, passed out, woke up and then hopped an ambulance to a hospital.

The resort's report said she was extremely paranoid, anxious and seeing things. Some people call that a really good trip ... not so much for Kat.

We reached out to her people, but no word back.

Robin has said Paula has tried driving a wedge between him and his son and is guilty of emotional abuse.

As we reported, in the last week Robin and Paula have tried to settle rather than fight, and they are on the verge of working out a custody arrangement they both find acceptable.

George Michael 911 Call 'He's in Bed, Dead'

2/10/2017 3:58 PM PST

George Michael's boyfriend calmly called 911 on Christmas Day and informed the dispatcher, "I've been trying to wake him up for the last hour but it's not possible. He's gone."

Fadi Fawaz discovered Michael's body in bed and told dispatchers the singer was "cold and he's blue ... and he's very stiff."

Fawaz sounds distressed but held it together. He was under a cloud of suspicion after he reportedly said he had spent Xmas Eve sleeping in his car and not at George's home. After the first autopsy proved inconclusive, cops interviewed Fawaz for hours but cleared him of any wrongdoing.

He still has not been buried as authorities continue to investigate cause of death.

FYI ... in England, emergency calls are 999, not 911.
