R&B Singer Fantasia officially confirmed her pregnancy last month during a performance for the opening of an apartment complex. And rumors have been circulating for weeks that her belly is protruding more than usual.
Some say, it looks as though she may have a premature delivery.
Well, it seems some doctors may have the same thoughts. Fantasia Barrino has been ordered by her doctors to remain on bed rest until further notice.
Fantasia was scheduled to perform at the Bronner Brothers International Hair Show this Saturday night in Atlanta. The company posted a Facebook message early Thursday morning that explained Fantasia was being replaced by R&B Singer Kelly Price… “thanks to doctor’s orders.”
New Update: Due to medical conditions, Fantasia has been placed on bed rest and will not be performing at the show. However, the lovely and talented Kelly Price is now scheduled to be the headliner for Saturday evening.
Barrino won “American Idol” in 2004. Since then, she starred on Broadway in “The Color Purple,” in her own Lifetime biopic and on a VH1 Reality Show. Fanasia, 27, attempted suicide in 2010, amidst allegations she had an affair with a married man.
This will be Fantasia’s 2nd child. Her daughter, Zion, was born in 2001.
