Flavor Flav Fiancee Liz Trujillo was not hospitalized for a drug overdose, according to a source close to the Public Enemy rapper, despite a report on TMZ to the contrary.
"Liz went to the hospital and was evaluated and released immediately with a clean bill of health. There were no drugs involved, period," Flavor Flav's friend told Yahoo omg about the musician and reality star's fiancee.

"Flav and Liz are being cooped up in a house in Chatsworth [California]. They're literally under lock and key and the watchful eye of dozens of cameras and producers and their housemates. It's a shame that a producer would gin up such an outrageously false claim at the expense of Liz, her family, and an already overburdened hospital staff."
The source took TMZ to task, for a report Monday afternoon that claimed Flavor Flav's fiancee overdosed on painkillers while shooting an episode of the reality show "Couples Therapy" for VH1.
"One should always be suspicious when the call to TMZ is placed simultaneously with the call to 911," Flavor Flav's friend told omg. "In response to the claim that drugs were a factor: nothing could be further from the truth."
The publication reported that sources connected with the show said Liz Trujillo, 38, was "acting strange" and it became apparent "she took too many pills." It was reported that Flavor Flav's fiancee's overdose was not a suicide attempt.
Later that day, TMZ added a statement to the article from the 54-year-old hip hop icon's representative.
Flavor Flav's rep claims Trujillo was briefly hospitalized after the producers of "Couples Therapy" kept her up all night working.
"The claim of an overdose, or any involvement of drugs, could not be further from the truth," the rep said.
