Bo Bice has been hospitalized again, after coughing up blood on Sunday in Las Vegas, Teen People reports.

"In what appears to be a complication from a previous surgery, Bo was rushed to the hospital yesterday," according to a statement from his rep at RCA Records. "He is doing fine and is returning home for treatment. He is canceling his performance on the Radio Music Awards (Monday night) and Jimmy Kimmel Live (Tuesday)."

Bice, 30, suddenly fell ill while attending a radio forum at the Aladdin hotel-casino in Las Vegas on Sunday. After coughing up blood, he was taken out on a stretcher and brought to Desert Springs Hospital, where his wife Caroline kept him company through the night.

"Bo is really bummed. His record is just coming out and he was so excited to perform," a friend tells Teen People.

Bice's illness is believed to be a complication from emergency surgery he underwent in August to remove an intestinal blockage. He was hospitalized in Las Vegas just hours before an "American Idols Live" tour performance.

"It's pretty serious stuff," the singer's minister, Pastor Donny Acton, told reporters at the time. "(He) can still get an infection."

Bice also suffered a broken foot during a performance in Manchester, N.H., on July 31. Despite the incident, the singer continued with the tour.

The Goo Goo dolls are scheduled to replace Bice at the Radio Music Awards on Monday.
