Sabu — a hardcore wrestling icon  — was rushed to the hospital before a scheduled event tonight in Pennsylvania … TMZ has learned.

Cops in Travose, PA tell TMZ they were dispatched to a hotel for a medical emergency, but wouldn’t elaborate. The manager at the hotel where Sabu was staying tells TMZ the staff there felt the wrestler was intoxicated when paramedics were called.

A source close to Sabu tells TMZ he had been MIA all day and promoters for an ECW reunion event he was scheduled to appear at could not get in touch with him.

According to our source, Sabu had an allergic reaction to a medication he had been taking.

Sabu is one of the top-billed wrestlers at the Extreme Reunion tonight, but we’re told he’ll be a no-show.

A rep for the event tells TMZ, “Sabu was found unresponsive in his hotel room earlier today when event staff went to his room to pick him up for tonight’s show. Management is currently awaiting results from his doctors to find out what actually happened.”

The rep continues, “All we know is that he had prior health issues that might have been a contributing factor. We’re pulling for him and are very concerned for his health. We wish him the best of luck in his recovery.”

According to TMZ, It seems McDreamy, a k a Patrick Dempsey, came to the rescue last Tuesday afternoon of a teenage boy whose car had flipped several times — into, TMZ reports, the Grey’s Anatomy star’s Malibu front yard.

Apparently, the Mustang was totaled, but a crowbar-wielding Dempsey — a passionate car-racing fan, by the way — was able to pry the driver free. The boy got just a concussion — but also, clearly, a great story.

Hollywood is heaping huzzahs on its latest hero. “True Story: Grey’s Anatomy actor Patrick Dempsey pulled my friend’s son out of overturned car after bad accident on Tuesday. #GoodDude” tweeted Shawn Ryan, The Shield‘s creator, on Friday.

Yahoo! Singapore caught up one on one with Korean hip hop artiste Jay Park ahead of his showcase this Sunday night at St James Power Station.

With a jam-packed schedule of press interviews and fan meets since touching down in Singapore on Friday, Park, 25, looked slightly tired, but the b-boy dynamo says that once he’s on stage, whatever exhaustion he feels just melts away.

“Once I get on stage I’m not tired — just ready to give my best. Sometimes I’ll take a Red Bull and say a quick prayer,” said Park, whose high-energy and physically demanding dance performances have earned him a place among the best hip-hop dancers in the Korean music industry.

His comeback performance on M! Countdown in Korea stirred controversy with the provocative dance choreography of “Know Your Name”, which he termed the “playing with fire dance”.

It involves a female dancer who performs body waves against Park’s body, and drew both admiration and criticism — ultimately, the “New Breed” album sold 80,000 copies in less than a month.

Up close, nothing is cookie-cutter about Park, from his numerous tattoos to his refreshingly open answers in an industry where most stars remain tight-lipped at the merest hint of controversy.

On getting to know a girl in a club like his title track “Know Your Name”

“I don’t know, I guess I’ll just go up to her and ask her, oh, what’s your name? Do you wanna get a drink?” said Park. “I don’t usually do this.”

His tattoos

“My tattoos, they are my way of expression. They all have different meanings to me.” said Park.

His many tattoos include a Korean flag, a Space Needle, a Lion on his chest, and the title of his album, “New Breed” on the side of his hand.

“I tattooed New Breed even before my album came out — to me it means a new breed of artiste — I now do all kinds of things, rap, dance, and all that.”

What if he runs out of space?  “Wow, I don’t know. Maybe I’ll write it down on a piece of paper.” said Park with a laugh.

Turning 25

For his 25th Birthday on the 25th of April, Park spent quality time with his family in Korea.

“We went to eat some sushi, and I did some recording, for my three songs in English. Then I watched the Avengers, which was great.” said Park.

“I do feel like I’m getting older, but I’m okay with it, it’s not an ‘oh no’ thing yet.”

Working with producer Rob Knox and his dream collaboration

“Rob is not intimidating at all, he’s really down to earth. We met, we vibed… he introduced me to James Fauntleroy, who wrote the hit “No Air” for Jordin Sparks,” said Park, who promptly broke out in song.

Fauntleroy composed the track “I Love You” featuring Korean rap group Dynamic Duo for Park’s new solo album.

His dream collaboration ? “There are thousands of singers I can think of, but (the late) Michael Jackson, that would have been great.” said Park, who counts Dr Dre, P Diddy, and Tupac among his musical idols.

On staying real

“I don’t feel like a superstar,” said Park, who added that he keeps in close touch with his family, who live with him in Korea, as well as his close friends in Seattle, who keep him grounded.

To his fans in Singapore

“I didn’t know I had so many fans here, I’m really honored,” said Park, who was greeted by a few hundred fans after touching down at Changi Airport.

On what to bring for fans attending his showcase on Sunday night

“Expect a good show and a little taste of my album, my music. Just bring your body, that’s enough,” said Park, who last performed here in 2010.

Jay Park will be performing at his “New Breed” showcase on 29 April 2012 (Sunday) at 3:30 pm at Dragonfly, St James Power Station, and will also make a guest appearance on Star Awards 2012 later that night.
