Rita Ora introduces a performance by Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sept. 19, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Rita Ora has been hospitalized with exhaustion. 

The British singer on Thursday (June 30) posted a picture of herself in a hospital bed, captioned with the message, “Today was pretty tough but I'm getting through it thank you all my fans and friends for the support! I love you!"

Ora is coming off a particularly hectic schedule of recording, filming and partying. Just 10 days earlier she signed a new, worldwide recording contract with Atlantic Records U.K. after untangling herself from her previous deal with Roc Nation. 

Her split followed a lawsuit filed last year describing an "orphaned relationship" between the artist and Roc Nation, which issued a counterclaim a month later.

Ora hasn’t released an album since her 2012 debut Ora, which reached No. 1 in her homeland. She’s since released several tracks, including “I Will Never Let You Down” and “Poison”, though a second album hasn’t materialized.  

Ora, who has been on set in Canada shooting 50 Shades Darker, reportedly wants to work with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker on her forthcoming set. She shared a photo of herself with Parker and producer Mark Ronson at Glastonbury Festival which seems to confirm those rumors.
