Oh dear.  Another celebrity hospitalized for an apparent overdose…

“TMZ has just reported that former teen tennis star Jennifer Capriati was rushed to the hospital early this morning after paramedics responded to a call for a possible overdose.

The 911 call was made from a hotel in Riviera Beach, Florida. Capriati was rushed into a nearby hospital.  Capriati has won 14 career titles, including three Grand Slams. She also won a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics…”

Not cool, man.

Jennifer has battled drugs, legal problems and her parents’ divorce in the past.  It looks like her demons may be rearing their ugly heads again.

Sigh…it’s always something, isn’t it?
