While in Miami Beach on set of her photo shoot for Madonna's Material Girl clothing line, Rita Ora reportedly passed out from heat exhaustion and dehydration and was taken to a nearby hospital.

The singer was in the middle of a photo shoot in 90 degree weather when she was reported to have collapsed. Soon after, the beach patrol officers came to help her, and she was seen on a stretcher getting into an ambulance. The Chairman of the Emergency Department at Mount Sinai Hospital Miami, Dr. David Farcy, confirmed Ora had been treated in their hospital, and was later discharged.

"Rita Ora was treated for heat exhaustion and dehydration at our hospital today," Farcy said. "She was discharged and is fine."

Ora was named the spokesperson for Madonna and her daughter Lourdes clothing line in July. "Rita is a talented beauty but what really drew us to her is the confidence she oozes through her music and her unique sense of style," they said in a statement. "On stage or off, in photos or on the street - she's a magnet! This is what the Material Girl brand is all about!"

This is not the first time that Ora has fallen ill while working. In August she had to cancel her shows due to a throat infection.
