George Lopez takes stock of his health after leaving the stage midterm due to a medical issue

Health fears have sadly plagued Hollywood in recent times, as influenza and COVID have once again surged in the United States. While many cases weren’t too alarming, there were some that set the internet on fire. This was the case with popular comedian George Lopez. During a New Years Eve performance, Lopez mysteriously fell ill and left the stage in the middle of the performance. Soon her evening performance was canceled, prompting genuine concern and wishes from fans. Now, just over a week later, the star has given fans an update on her health.

Reports surrounding the sitcom star’s New Years Eve standing performance definitely left more questions than answers. While eyewitness accounts provided insight, many were still eager for more details. George Lopez recently made a surprise appearance on View to mark the birthday of a friend and co-host Ana Navarro. While virtually celebrating his friend, he recounted the ordeal that had occurred while he was on stage:

I was surrounded by people who tested positive [for COVID]. I have not tested positive … In April, [I’m coming up on] 17 years since I will have my kidney transplant from my ex-wife, Ann, and I have no immunity to what’s going on in the world. And I got on stage, and I was hot at first and I was sweating and I started to see kind of red flashes. And I thought, ‘I think I’m going to pass out.’ And I sat down and I got up, and I think it’s right before you passed out, you see… your body just tensed up a bit. It was more serious… I was really hot, I think my temperature was 102.9, and the paramedics came to see me. I checked OK, but I was a little worried. The upper respiratory tract, for me, and dehydration is a bad thing for me… For me, I’m better, I’m better now, and to everyone who contacted me, I appreciate it so much.

The memory of the star of the situation is truly frightening to hear. As the comedian stated, being immunocompromised makes him very susceptible to any virus that is circulating. Some fans may be aware of his status as a kidney transplant recipient, a topic he touched on on his eponymous sitcom. While he’s still not quite sure what the mysterious illness was, it’s good to know it wasn’t COVID and he’s fine now.

Over the course of his career, George Lopez has established himself as one of the most beloved performers in the world of comedy. He also racked up some nice acting credits that only earned him more praise. And as you can imagine, it continues to be more than busy today.

Due to his illness, he postponed his canceled performance to March 18. The standing concert has been included in its already busy 2022 touring schedule. On top of that he has been busy on the television front as he has an Amazonian drama and an NBC sitcom in the works. In addition, he will produce and star in both shows. You like to see him reserved and busy, but also hope that he has enough time for a well-deserved rest and relaxation.
