US rapper Tyga hospitalized in Abu Dhabi

  • American rapper Tyga has revealed that he's been hospitalized in the UAE
  • He uploaded a series of snaps on his Instagram Stories of himself wearing a surgical mask at a hospital in Abu Dhabi

DUBAI: Following his second performance in Saudi Arabia, rapper Tyga has recently shared that he’s been hospitalized in the UAE.

The “Taste” singer was in the UAE capital for an appearance in the side lines of F1 on Saturday night, the same day he performed at Riyadh’s Diriyah Season.

On Sunday, he uploaded a series of snaps on his Instagram Stories of himself wearing a surgical mask at a hospital in Abu Dhabi. He simply captioned the first shot with a crying emoji and a sick emoji.

“Thank you for the doctors in Abu Dhabi for treating me w the best care (sic),” he wrote alongside the second clip.

It’s unclear why the rapper has been admitted into the medical institution, but if his trip to a hospital in India last week is any indication, it could very well be from exhaustion.

According to the Times of India, Tyga—born Michael Ray Stevenson— told fans at his Mumbai concert that he was “feeling under the weather.”

While it’s not yet known whether the rapper is still in the hospital or not, he is expected to take the stage in Hamburg tonight.

California says film, TV production can resume this month

LOS ANGELES: California will allow film, television and music production to resume from June 12 if conditions permit after months of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the governor's office said Friday.


Film and television productions in the Golden State have been shuttered since mid-March.


The reopening will be subject to approval by local health officers, the California Public Health Office said.


"To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers," it said.


However it is not clear if major Hollywood studios will be able to resume operations from next week because Los Angeles county is one of the main coronavirus epicenters in California, recording about half the infections and deaths in the state.


To date, more than 125,000 cases and 4,500 deaths have been confirmed in California.
