Maya Angelou

Contrary to a Saturday night report, author and poet Maya Angelou was not hospitalized while in Los Angeles.
The Web site, who traditionally scoops traditional news outlets with news of celebrity ailments,was forced to backtrack Sunday morning on its initial story of Angelou being taken to the hospital.

The site said she was scheduled to be honored at the BraveHeart Awards in L.A., but their camera guy on scene was told that she would not be there because she was taken to the hospital.

CNN news editor Saeed Ahmed shared this on Twitter early Sunday: “Contrary to TMZ report, Maya Angelou is fine, at home, & wasn’t even in LA Sat nite, said her literary agent Helen Brann.”

The TMZ article was updated some time after 10 a.m. Sunday, saying: Reps for Maya Angelou tell us she was never scheduled to appear at the event last night — so we have no idea why the organizers told us she was a no-show because she went to the hospital. …She never agreed to be there at all and sent a taped acceptance speech in her place.”

Angelou was in St. Louis Sunday, reportedly preparing for a trip to New York City for the next 2-3 weeks.
