George Clooney's recent humanitarian trip didn't end as smoothly as one would have hoped.

CNN host Piers Morgan took to Twitter on Thursday to say the actor contracted malaria following his recent trip to Sudan. This is said to be Clooney's second bout with the disease.

The actor was "taking medication, but feeling rough," added Morgan.  A rep for the actor confirms the report, telling the Daily News, "George is completely over the malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week in January."

Glad to hear he's okay.
