Star Wars' Carrie Fisher hospitalised after bipolar disorder flares up on cruise ship

Washington, Feb. 27 (ANI): 'Star Wars' actress Carrie Fisher has been hospitalised following a bizarre performance on board a Caribbean cruise ship last week, which her representative claimed was caused by the actress' bipolar disorder.

The video footage of the performance, which took place last week on board the Holland America Eurodam in the Caribbean, shows the 56-year-old actress slurring a couple off-key songs, TMZ.com reported.
