Glee star 'collapses on red carpet'

Amber Riley reportedly collapsed on a red carpet in Los Angeles.

The Glee star was attending an event hosted by the TV Academy of Arts and Sciences in Hollywood when she fainted, according to E! Online.

She was being interviewed and photographed when the incident occurred on Tuesday night.

Amber, who plays Mercedes Jones in the hit TV series, later took to her Twitter account to let her fans know she is fine.

"Hey guys, I'm okay :) I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! (sic)" she said.

"You'd think I'd be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes.

"I'd also like to thank the photographers for being do professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing (sic)."

The 26-year-old actress took a break after fainting and then returned to the event.

The TV Academy was holding a panel discussion with the stars of Glee in front of Emmy voters.

Glee is currently nearing the end of production for its third season.
