Rita Ora has been hospitalised for exhaustion, with sources telling MailOnline she has ‘been working solidly for the past few months’ as well as the trial of the burglar who invaded her home.
The Hot Right Now hitmaker was admitted to a facility just hours after the intruder, who targeted her home in a terrifying raid worth more than £200,000, was jailed for five years on Wednesday.
Following the hearing, Rita, 25, took to Instagram to share a concerning image with her 9.5million followers in which she lay in a hospital bed with a drip attached to her arm.

Exhausted: Rita Ora has been hospitalised, seemingly after a spell of exhaustion, as she shared a snap on Instagram shortly after the burglar who targeted her home in terrifying intrusion was jailed for five years
As the usually glamorous stunner lay in the hospital bed, she was clad in head-to-toe sportswear as she managed a weak smile while resting a hand on her forehead.
The image garnered 116,000 likes and 1,477 comments in just eight hours, as her devoted fan base gushed well-wishes to her, urging her to get better soon.
Rita, who just returned from Glastonbury festival, added a comment on the image, reading: ‘Today was pretty tough but I’m getting through it thank you to all of you for the support! I love you!! #exhaustionisreal’.
Sources close to the star revealed: ‘Yes, she was exhausted – a result of not having a break. She’s been working solidly for the last few months and then when she can she parties. Over the last few months she has been flying back and forth between Vancouver and LA – on 50 Shades set in Vancouver and then recording studio in LA.
‘She then flew to UK for the court trial and then went to Glastonbury for a few days partying and then came back on Monday and shot a two day ad campaign in London this Tues and Wed.’

Back in 2013, Rita collapsed on the set of a photo shoot in Miami Beach, Florida after which she was rushed to hospital when she appeared to pass out, according to onlookers.
She was seen being carried out of her make-up trailer and stretchered into an ambulance before being taken to the emergency room where she was treated for ‘heat exhaustion and dehydration’.
Dr David Farcy MD- Chairman of the Emergency Department at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami, told MailOnline in a statement: ‘Rita Ora was treated for heat exhaustion and dehydration at our hospital today. She was discharged and is fine.’
Rita’s most recent ordeal followed on from the jail sentence issued to Charaf Elmoudden, 26, who went to the singer’s four-bedroom house in north-west London on November 28 last year and made off with a stash of expensive shoes, phones, computers and a designer bag.

The former X Factor judge called the police and said she would “f*** up” the burglar after he woke her sister Elena up rifling through her bedroom.
Elmoudden has a string of previous convictions from between 2006 and 2011, including one for trying to sell pictures of the body of a dead Harry Potter actor.
He was found guilty with a majority verdict of 10 to two of burglary at Harrow Crown Court on Wednesday and sentenced to five years in prison.
Rita and her sister were asleep upstairs at the semi-detached home they share with their parents when two men broke into the three-storey house.
Elmoudden and an accomplice made off with designer goods and electronics which included iPhones, Apple Mac computers, a Fifty Shades Of Grey handbag worth 4,000 US dollars (£2,682) and a Louis Vuitton bag.

He was picked out in a line-up by Elena three months after the burglary. Elena told the jury she confronted an intruder and he “looked dead in my eyes”.
Singer Ora gave evidence from behind a screen during the trial and the court was also played a frantic 999 call from the star.
In it, she sobbed “I don’t have a knife” and threatened to kill the thieves.
She was heard screaming “Don’t you f****** come up these stairs. I will f*** you up – you f****** hear me?” after locking herself in her room with her sister.
Ora was not present in court for the verdict but when she previously attended to give evidence she was escorted from the courtroom before putting on a pair of large sunglasses in the foyer and leaving through a back entrance.
