London: `Glee` star Amber Riley collapsed to the floor on the red carpet on Tuesday night because of photography flashes.

The 26-year-year old was attending the TV Academy of Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood for a panel discussion and while doing interviews she fainted and fell to the floor, reported Contactmusic.

The American singer-actress has confirmed she is fine and was dizzy from the paparazzi flash bulbs.

"Hey guys, I am okay. I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You would think I would be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes," she posted on Twitter.

Riley, who plays the role of Mercedes Jones in the comedy-drama show, was able to continue with the panel discussion.
