U2’s Bono was rumored to have been hospitalized last week in Monaco following a heart scare.

Bono, 51, has been hard at work, as he just wrapped a world tour of 30 countries and performed at Glastonbury last month while reportedly experiencing chest pains.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the rumors are untrue, and the rocker’s spokesperson said the hospital visit was routine.

“Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare," his rep told Reuters. “Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France."

The rumors started when The Irish Independent newspaper reported that the U2 frontman had a health scare when he complained of chest pain.
