Soul singer and American Idol alum Fantasia Barrino has been put on bed rest by her doctor.
The “Hood Boy” singer was scheduled to perform during the Bronner Brothers International Hair Show at the weekend but can no longer make the appearance. A statement concerning the change of events read “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 is already mother to her 9 year old daughter Zion. She announced that she was expecting her second child with boyfriend, Antwaun Cook during a charity concert in Jacksonville, FL earlier this month. “You are the first persons that I share this news with. And I share this with you because I can relate to you,” she told a crowd outside Riverview Apartments.
She continued, “And for a while I walked around figuring out what will they say and what will they think about me. But now I tell you I don’t live my life for folk. This child that I carry, God has given me this child. And I don’t have to hide it from none of y’all.”
