The star was rushed to hospital from court yesterday...

Michael Jackson has spent the night in hospital where he is being treated for flu like symptoms.

As reported yesterday, the singer was rushed to hospital on his way to court, where he was due to appear for jury selection in his child abuse case.

Michael Jackson is currently facing the allegations in Santa Maria, California, where he faces over 20 years behind bars if found guilty.

Speaking yesterday, doctor Chuck Merrill from the Marian Medical Center, said Jackson was suffering from “a flu-like illness with some vomiting”, but is said to be stable and set to make a full recovery.

Jury selection has been postponed until next Tuesday.
