Minnelli collapses on stage

Liza Minnelli collapsed as she was leaving the stage during a Christmas performance in Sweden. She returned to the US yesterday for treatment, her rep says. "Liza is fine." Uh, if you say so.

Minnelli, 61, was performing in Gothenburg Wednesday night in a concert called "A Classic Christmas Night," said Zlatko Nedanovski, who works for the company organizing the show. He said Minnelli felt unwell and nauseous before the concert but decided to perform anyway.

"She performed four songs, which was about half her set," Nedanovski said. "She felt unwell, walked towards the stairs behind the stage, took her first step off the stage, became unconscious, and fell into the arms of someone walking with her."

He claims the audience saw Minnelli collapse. You Tube? "She remained unconscious for about five seconds. She seemed very dizzy afterwards," he said.
