Kelsey Grammer has suffered a heart attack.
The 'Frasier' actor had a mild heart attack on Saturday morning (31.05.08) and was rushed to hospital in Hawaii where he is now recovering.
A representative for the star said: "Grammer experienced symptoms Saturday morning after paddle boarding with his wife Camille at their Hawaiian home. He was immediately taken to a hospital where it was determined that he had a mild heart attack."
Grammer, 53, is "resting comfortably" in hospital, and is expected to be released sometime this week.
Although Grammer does not have a history of heart trouble, he has battled alcoholism and drug addiction.
He was treated for drink problems at a rehabilitation centre in 1990, but became addicted to cocaine shortly after he was released.
He said: "The minute I got out I went home and did a lot of cocaine. It took me to the place where I felt like I was at the edge. And I liked living there. I probably would have died if I hadn't stopped."
