    After reports began to surface that U2 frontman Bono was admitted to the hospital after experiencing chest pains while in the South of France last week, the singer's rep issued a statement to refute the falsities in the story. Bono did go to the hospital, but not because of chest pains, as was widely reported.

    "Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare," the spokeswoman said in a statement that was provided to Reuters.

    "Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France."

    We are glad to hear that Bono is doing fine and that reports were untrue and exaggerated.
