Judy Sheindlin, star of the legal show "Judge Judy," is expected to be released from the hospital soon.

Her spokesman, Gary Rosen, told KTLA News that he had spoken to Sheindlin and that "all of the tests are negative, and she's going home tomorrow."

It's unclear what exactly prompted Sheindlin to seek medical attention after feeling ill at a Hollywood studio on Wednesday.

[Updated at 4:11 p.m.: The Times and other media organizations had reported earlier that Sheindlin had said on a Twitter account that she was doing well. But Rosen told The Times on Thursday afternoon that she does not have a Twitter account and that someone was impersonating her.

The Times had quoted a tweeted comment in which she said she feels fine and would begin taping her show again April. 18.]
