George Michael's spokeswoman says the singer is "resting" after receiving hospital treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

The Sun newspaper reported Thursday that ambulances were called to Michael's London home on May 22 and the former Wham! singer was taken to a hospital.

Spokeswoman Connie Filippello confirmed that Michael was discharged over the weekend "and is well and resting." She said that "given the personal nature of this matter there will be no further comment."

In 2011, Michael spent several weeks in hospital with life-threatening pneumonia. At the time, he thanked hospital staffers for saving his life.

Last year he was hospitalized after falling from a moving car on a highway in England.

He was imprisoned for eight weeks in 2010 for possessing marijuana and driving under the influence of drugs after he crashed his Range Rover into a photo shop.

Michael recently released a new album called "Symphonica," featuring his own songs as well as covers including Nina Simone's "My Baby Just Cares for Me." The collection hit No. 1 on the U.K. album charts in March.
