BonoBono's representative has reacted quickly to shoot down reports the U2 star was hospitalized after suffering heart palpitations and pains while on vacation in the south of France.

According to editors at RollingStone.com, the rocker had been admitted to Princess Grace hospital in Monaco on Wednesday. He was allegedly checked by a heart specialist and told to rest, before being released.

However, the frontman has moved to quash the rumors, insisting he did attend the medical facility - but only for a planned routine check-up.

A rep for the star says, "Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare. 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."
