Her partner Lior Bitton revealed the former star’s condition through an Instagram video at the weekend.
Bitton, who shares four-year-old daughter Batel Lu with Jameson, spoke of how she had been throwing up for two weeks before going to the hospital.
He said: “Then she came back home and she couldn’t carry herself.
“Her muscles in her legs were very weak. So she wasn’t able to walk to the bathroom.
"She was falling on the way back or to the bathroom, I would have to pick her up and carry her to bed.
“And then within two days, it got really not so good, her legs started to not hold her, she wasn’t able to walk.”
