Taraji P. Henson was hospitalized on Friday, June 19 for exhaustion. 

But not to worry guys, she’s doing ok! 

Her rep Pamela Sharp told the media that “Taraji is going to be fine. It was mostly exhaustion.”

And just in case you’re still not buying Taraji’s recovering health status, go check her Instagram. 

Taraji recently went on Instagram to assure her fans that she is one “tough cookie.” 

The “Empire” actress explained that she had been overworking herself and her hospitalization is a result of her not listening to her body.

"Don't worry y'all I'm a tough cookie! HA! I will be just fine," she wrote in the caption. "My momma and best friends are flying in to check on me. I AM FINE!!!!!!! Just need to SAT ALL THE WAY DOWN for a bit. #listentoyourbody.”

It is unclear how long Taraji will be in the hospital, but we are wishing her a speedy recovery!  

The “Empire” cast is currently riding the massive wave of success the show has gotten since its debut last fall and there have been plenty of rehearsals, filming, press tours, and even a rumored “Empire” music tour in the works. 

With all that on one person’s plate, it’s easy to see why she is exhausted and run down. Hopefully Taraji and the rest of the “Empire” cast and crew can find some down time once the work is done.
