Superstar Howie Mandel gave fans an update following reports he was rushed to the hospital after he suddenly passed out while outside his local Starbucks in southern California.

“I am home and doing better,” the 65-year-old comedian and TV personality tweeted Wednesday, E! News reported.

“I was (dehydrated or had low blood sugar),” he added. “I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!”

The update came after reports surfaced earlier in the day he was reportedly at the coffee joint with his wife Terry and some friends in Los Angeles when he reportedly lost consciousness, fell over and landed flat on the cement, TMZ reported.

The “America’s Got Talent” judge was reportedly conscious and sitting up by the time LA paramedics arrived, the piece noted. He was then taken to a nearby hospital. (RELATED: Howie Mandel Apologizes)
