No, the stress of pretending she wanted to be there didn’t finally get to her.
Lena Dunham has regularly suffered from symptoms of endometriosis and last month, she admitted at an endometriosis event that she had recently undergone excision surgery and was feeling good. According to People magazine, Lena’s endometriosis symptoms messed with her during the Met Gala on Monday night, and she ended up trading in her ballgown for a hospital gown.
A source tells People that Lena experienced endometriosis complications not long after arriving to the Met Gala. The source claims she was rushed to the ER for some medical attention. She was released after a series of tests, and she’s currently resting at home. Neither Lena nor a rep has said anything about her condition.
Having to leave a party because your body decided to hate you is never fun. But as much as I’m sure Lena was happy to get away from the obnoxiousness of the Met Gala and go home, I do feel a little bad. The only reason to go to the Met Gala in the first place is to watch people in ridiculous costumes attempt to do stuff while getting progressively drunker. Shame on you, endometriosis. You robbed Lena of the opportunity to see a hammered Instagram model stand in front of a toilet and wonder how they’re going to piss in a beaded body stocking.
