This question isn’t really about Dave Chappelle per se, but in this article it says that Chappelle was hospitalized for exhaustion. He was admitted for 12 hours and was given “food, water, and sleep” there.
What does this mean exactly? Why couldn’t he get food, water, and sleep at home? Why did he have to go to the hospital for this? Or does “exhaustion” have some medical meaning here that I don’t know? I notice this often happens in tandem with denials of drug use. Is that just sensationalism on the part of the press, or is it a common cover up reason for a celebrity’s admission? Do non-famous folks ever go to the hospital for exhaustion?
I hope to get factual answers, thus placing it in GQ. If the thread doesn’t go that way, I guess it’ll get moved. Thanks.
