A spokesperson for Lee told the publication he “is doing well and feeling good – he is staying there for a few days for some check-ups as a safety precaution.”
“All I really want to do is tell you that I’m feeling great,” Lee then told ABC Los Angeles station KABC on Thursday. “I figured a little check up wouldn’t be bad for me. And in fact it turned out to be pretty good, it got me a lot of publicity. I’m feeling good now and I can’t wait to get in there and tangle with all the competition.”
