Singer Keri Hilson attends Lifetime’s “Steel Magnolias” Premiere Event on October 3, 2012 in New York City

*Keri Hilson says she fell ill during a flight on Friday and blames lack of sleep for the health scare.

The singer has been in China this week, and was on a flight back to the States when she apparently began vomiting and passed out.

The 29 year old tweeted this morning: “Sure hope my day gets better cuz this morning I’m having so far… I fainted on my flight. then I threw up. I’m fine now, I just need real rest… haven’t had more than 3.5 hrs of sleep in 48hrs.”

Hilson went on to say she was so distracted by her illness she left several personal belongings on the flight: “I left my purse & gifts from China on the plane, discombobulated. *sigh* drinking gatorade & HOME-bound. I’m good now…”
