Followill battling suspected food poisoning

Kings Of Leon rocker Jared Followill is laid up sick in bed with suspected food poisoning.

The bassist has just returned home to America from a vacation in Ibiza, Spain - but he's suffering a fever and is now focusing on his rest.

In a series of posts on Twitter.com, he writes, "I'm not leaving my bed today. So exhausted. Sleeping until (TV show) Ancient Aliens comes on later and then falling right back asleep.

"Think my lay-in-bed day is caused by something worse than exhaustion. Food poisoning seems to be it. Achy. Fever. I'll spare you the rest."
