Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic (LOS ANGELES) — A bizarre performance on board a Caribbean cruise ship resulted in Carrie Fisher being hospitalized, her representative tells TMZ.

The rep says the incident was triggered by Fisher’s bipolar disorder.

The website reports video of the performance on board the Holland America Eurodam in the Caribbean shows Fisher slurring the words to a song and singing off key during a “surprise celebrity guest” performance.  The footage also shows Fisher’s dog pooping and peeing on stage while she performs.

Explaining the incident to TMZ, the rep says, “There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder.  She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now.”  

It’s unclear if Fisher will perform on the cruise ship in the future.

Fisher is a recovering drug addict who has publicly discussed her struggle with bipolar disorder.
