Adam Ant sectioned under Mental Health Act

Friday May 21, 2010

Eighties pop star Adam Ant has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, it has been reported.

The news follows a series of troubled public appearances from the 55-year-old, including a concert last week where he reportedly unleashed a tirade of abuse at the crowd during a charity gig.

On Thursday, Adam sent a message to fans about his hospital visit.

"Ant fans - please send me postcards at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Fulham Road. Please don't come down here as it may upset the staff who have been really pleasant.

"I am having a well earned rest at Her Majesty's Pleasure and am painting and continuing being an art student. I have a great view and am considering gigs later in the year."
