Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson was hospitalized yesterday (June 10) after experiencing “abdominal pain” moments before she was due to perform on CBS’ Early Show Outdoor Concert Series.
Hudson, who was booked for two gigs, started feeling pains following her first performance in New York’s Central Park as planned for Good Morning America. Her rep broke the news to waiting fans and photographers, explaining Hudson was “unable to perform” and had been taken to hospital to seek treatment for stomach issues.
The “Where You At” hitmaker was briefly treated for food poisoning at a New York hospital and released.
In related news, Hudson is working on her first memoir that will document her inspirational weight-loss journey – she slimmed down from a size 16 to a size 6, losing a total of 80 pounds. The currently untitled book is scheduled for release in January 2012. She is also currently filming the Farrelly Brothers comedy ‘The Three Stooges’ with Sofia Vergara and Jane Lynch.
