Cuomo's longtime girlfriend, Sandra Lee, was rushed to a hospital Tuesday evening, a source close to the celebrity chef told the Daily News.

According to the source, Lee, 49, is suffering fluid buildup and “the plan is to monitor her for a couple of days.” She was sent to the hospital around 9:30 p.m.

Cuomo was attending the Billy Joel concert at Nassau Coliseum at the time and was said to be "en route."

Lee, 49, was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in March and had a double mastectomy May 19. This is the latest complication in her recovery.

A spokeswoman for Cuomo could not be reached early Wednesday.
