Montel Williams had a health scare on Wednesday during a workout. The star was at his local gym when the incident happened.


While exercising, the talk show host realized something was wrong according to TMZ. He then left the gym and went to his room where things got worse for the star.

Montel Williams had to be rushed to the hospital in NYC on Wednesday. This was after he suffered a medical emergency during a workout at a local gym.

Williams’ representative, Jonathan Franks, spoke to the publication about the incident. He revealed that things started going downhill while the star was doing dumbbell squats.


Williams felt something was wrong and stopped exercising. As he wasn’t feeling right, he chose to go back up to his room.

While there, he realized the situation was quite serious and he needed medical attention.

"The Williams family will be forever grateful for the quick response from NYFD and the excellent care he has received.”

That’s when he called for help. Emergency responders got to Williams in less than 5 minutes and he was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.


The star is expected to make a full recovery. His representative added that "We don't take any chances when it comes to somebody with Multiple Sclerosis."

The host is said to be doing well and can’t wait to get back to work. Franks revealed that they had to cancel one of Williams’ speeches and the star wasn’t too happy about that.

He’s expected to be discharged soon.
