Many believed that Carrie Fisher was acting unusual during a performance on a cruise ship last week. Now, new reports claim she was suffering from a bipolar episode.
Fisher was one of the acts on the Holland American Eurodam in the Caribbean.While performing a song, she reportedly began slurring her speech. Then, apparently her pet dog relieved himself onstage, and Fisher refused to stop the show. (Did she need to? Can’t someone run out and pick it up?)
That said, many assumed she was drunk. Now the star’s rep explains that Fisher had a psychiatric breakdown related to her bipolar disorder.
A spokesperson told TMZ.com: “There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder. She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now.”
The actress was diagnosed as a bipolar sufferer in her 20s. She even turned to shock therapy for treatment.
Fisher is reportedly in negotiations to reprise her Princess Leia character in an upcoming “Star Wars” film, directed by JJ Abrams.
