EIGHTIES pop legend Adam Ant has been committed to psychiatric care after ranting at Christians during a Church Hall event.
The troubled star, who suffers from bipolar disorder, was hospitalised on Tuesday night in London.
An unspecified incident led to the 55-year-old singer being taken into care, according to the Adam and the Ants website.
“Adam is currently undergoing initial psychiatric assessment and more details will follow when appropriate. Ant Lib Online would like to wish Adam all the best in his recovery,” it said.
A message sent by the star – whose real name is Stuart Goddard – read: “Ant fans – please send me postcards at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Fulham Road.
“Please don’t come down here as it may upset the staff who have been really pleasant. I am having a well earned rest at Her Majesty’s Pleasure and am painting and continuing being an art student. I have a great view and am considering gigs later in the year.”
Ant stunned fans at a gig in Portsmouth, southern England, last week when he invited a four-year-old boy up on stage and tried to teach him the words to The Who song My Generation.
As some fans began to leave he screamed abuse at them before asking if there were Christians there and telling them to “f*** off”.
The singer has been detained under the mental health act several times since 2003. In that year he was hospitalised after being found naked in a cafe basement following a dispute with a neighbour.
The previous year, he was arrested when he threatened drinkers in a London bar with a fake gun.
