Nicholas Brendon’s fans will be shocked to learn that their star recently collapsed and was rushed to the hospital. Nicholas Brendon, star of ‘Buffy,’ has been hospitalized following a ‘cardiac incident.’
Nicholas Brendon, star of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” was hospitalized after suffering a “cardiac incident,” according to his sister. On Monday, Brendon’s sister captioned a series of photos of Brendon in an ambulance and a hospital on his Instagram.
“Nicky is doing fine now but he had to be rushed to emergency about two weeks ago because of a cardiac incident (tachycardia/arrhythmia).”
“Some of you might remember he had a similar incident after his second spinal surgery last year (for Cauda Equina) but this time. He is trying to get a little more rest and has been concentrating on medical appointments.”
According to his manager Theresa Fortie, the “Criminal Minds” actor underwent spinal surgery to treat paralysis in his genitals and legs, which was exacerbated by having to sleep in a concrete-floored jail cell after his arrest for prescription fraud.
“During the arrest, they were not quite careful with his condition. It has aggravated the symptoms of his previous injury and the paralysis is starting to reappear. He may have burst another disc or [had] everything fell out of alignment.”
“So sleeping on a cement floor with other inmates was not exactly conducive to healing and it aggravated his injury and since then he has been in immense pain with numbness and paralysis.”
Brendon was arrested and charged in August 2021 with prescription fraud of a controlled substance and refusing to identify himself while stopped for an infraction. It was the latest in a string of legal problems for the actor, who had previously been arrested twice in 2015 before entering rehab that same year.
Brendon is still being monitored by doctors and receiving special treatment. Let us hope for the best and that Brendon returns home soon. Actor, get well soon. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more information.
