Empire star Taraji P. Henson posted an Instagram photo from a hospital bed on Friday, but assured fans that she’ll be fine.

“God has a way of saying ‘you’re doing too much!’ ‘SAT DOWN SOMEWHERE.’ I’m listening Father!!! I am taking several seats!!!” she captioned the photo of an IV in her arm.


The actress didn’t specify what was wrong, though a report from TMZ claimed food poison as the cause of her hospitalization.

“Don’t worry y’all I’m a tough cookie! HA! I will be just fine,” Henson added. “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.”

Henson will reprise her role as Cookie Lyon when Empire returns for its second season on Fox in September. A representative for the actress was not immediately available for comment.
