Rapper Trina is recovering in a Florida hospital after passing out due to dehydration.

The B R Right hitmaker, real name Katrina Taylor, fainted shortly after disembarking a plane at a Florida airport in the early hours of Monday (23Sep13) and was admitted to a local medical centre for treatment.

According to Tmz.com, Trina, who was already ill, was also suffering from "overexertion".

The 34 year old has since reached out to fans on Instagram.com to assure them she is on the road to recovery, sharing a photo of her arm hooked up to an intravenous drip with the caption, "Thanks for your concern and prayers! I'm ok, just ready to leave this place I hate needles (sic)."
