Amber Riley has denied a string of rumours emerging from her collapse on a red carpet last night (May 1).

The Glee actress, Mercedes Jones in the musical comedy, insisted that her faint was not the result of diabetes, pregnancy or dietary pills.

She told fans on Twitter: "Let me stop the rumour mill right now. I'm not pregnant! Yes I'm black but I don't have diabetes.

"I don't starve myself to fit clothes; I buy clothes to fit ME not vice versa, I DO NOT DIET; I eat right and exercise! I love myself waaaay more than I like my career.

"I would never ever put myself in harm's way to mirror any "image". Come on ppl. Get a life. I did get a great laugh this morning reading all the BS though lol."

She expressed gratitude to sensitive photographers and fans on the social networking site shortly after the incident, insisting that her fall was a consequence of dizziness due to flashing lights.

Riley, 26, was on her way into the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood for a panel discussion in front of Emmy voters.
