(Newser) – Miley Cyrus was hospitalized yesterday after having a bad allergic reaction to antibiotics—but TMZ reports that it's actually the death of her dog earlier this month that's behind it all. Since Floyd's death, Cyrus has been "an emotional mess," and the only way she's found to deal with her crying jags and inability to sleep has been to party way too much, sources say. "She's been off the rails," adds another; both alcohol and drugs are reportedly involved. Worn out, she got sick, went on the antibiotics, and the rest is history. Miley tweeted today that she'll likely have to cancel tonight's concert in St. Louis, as she probably won't be released today, E! reports.

Cyrus has made no secret of the fact that she's despondent over Floyd's death—in fact, she's posted about it so often on social media (and even sang a tribute to a huge inflatable version of the Husky at one of her concerts) that Gawker ran an explainer on Monday. It's not clear what happened to Floyd (there are reports he was killed by a coyote), but he was apparently Miley's favorite of the five dogs she had. After his death, her mom got her a new dog named Moonie, but she ended up giving the puppy away due to a concern about having small dogs—because in 2012, another dog of Miley's died after being grabbed by yet another dog of hers (who was also subsequently re-homed).
