Luke Perry, '90210' and 'Riverdale' star, 'under observation' at the hospital, rep says
Luke Perry, "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Riverdale" actor, is under observation at a hospital, the actor's rep told Fox News Thursday.
"Mr. Perry is currently under observation at the hospital," his rep said.
The news of Perry's hospitalization comes after TMZ reported the actor suffered a massive stroke on Wednesday morning.
According to TMZ, paramedics responded to a call at the star's home in Sherman Oaks, Calif., at approximately 9:40 a.m. Wednesday. The call came into the fire department for someone suffering a stroke, the gossip site reported.
DON'T ASK LUKE PERRY ABOUT '90210'
The Los Angeles Fire Department did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.
The incident occurred the same day that the "Beverly Hills, 90210" reboot was announced.
Perry, 52, was not attached to the new project, though former co-stars Ian Ziering, Jason Priestley, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth and Gabrielle Carteris would reprise new versions of their prior roles on the series.
In 2015, Perry was treated for precancerous growths after a colonoscopy. He's since been a vocal advocate for screenings for colorectal cancer.
