Delilah Belle Hamlin reveals that she suffered a ‘scary painful’ seizure while filming the new music video for her debut single Nothing Lasts Forever
Delilah Belle Hamlin revealed that she suffered a ‘scary painful’ seizure while she filmed the new music video for her debut single Nothing Lasts Forever.
The 24-year-old daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin — who supported their aspiring pop star at her album release party on Friday night — spoke to ET about the scary ordeal while she promoted the track.
Recounting her health scare, Delilah told the outlet: ‘On the second day of filming the music video, it was, like, nine hours into the day and I suffered from seizures…
‘We don’t really know too much about them yet. Even though it’s been years, we’re still trying to figure it out. I ended up having a seizure on-set.’
After describing the seizure as ‘scary painful,’ Delilah said: ‘It was probably one of the worst I’ve had in a while, but I had everyone I loved around me.’
Delilah found a silver lining in the scary experience, telling ET that she ‘was able to bring the emotion of [her seizure] into filming the next day.’
The up-and-coming songstress went on to declare that she was ‘proud’ of the fact that she continued filming after the seizure, as she leaned on some advice from her hardworking mom.
‘Lisa’s always taught me [that] if you are, like dying, if you are vomiting, if you are throwing up, do the day. Go and do it. Show up for work. So I try. I always try my best. There are some days when I really can’t, but I try my best.’
Delilah’s been very open about her health struggles in the past, and she recently gave her fans an update via Instagram in January, pairing a very candid caption with a photo of her receiving an IV.
She wrote: ‘I haven’t really spoken on my health lately & if you’re new here you’re probably confused but for the past few years I’ve been struggling with autoimmune/ chronic illness issues that I’ve been silently battling and overcoming.
‘It’s definitely been tough mentally alongside physically. I’ve kind of kept quiet because I don’t want to be put in a “sick” role.
‘I’ve faced a lot, overcome a lot, and I know that I’m going through this for a reason and that reason is to share what I’ve gone through and what I’ve learned with you.’
The influencer’s caption focused more specifically on her faith as she included a quote from televangelist Joel Osteen.
‘When you feel as though the pressure is too much, it’s because you’re stronger than you think,’ she wrote, quoting Osteen.
‘You’ll never discover how strong you really are until you face pressure that you’ve never faced. It may seem unbearable, but the fact that God allowed it means you can handle it.’
Delilah has had quite a few issues in recent years, including multiple rehab stints as well as fighting off Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr, encephalitis, and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections, according to Vanity Fair.
The final disorder, also known as PANDAS, led to extreme bouts of anxiety which Hamlin said led her to accidentally overdosing on Xanax.
