Brandi Norwood shared a message to fans after reports of her hospitalization in Los Angeles on Wednesday. In an Instagram Story, the singer, who goes by her first name, said she is recovering from “dehydration and undernutrition.”
“To my dear family, friends and Starz, thank you for sending the love and lighting my path,” she wrote. “I’m following doctor’s orders and I need the rest because of dehydration and low amounts of nutrition.”
In addition to a singing career, Brandi became the first black Cinderella when she starred in the 1997 “Wonderful World of Disney” film adaptation.
The 43-year-old has had poor health in the past. She went to the hospital after she lost consciousness on a flight from Los Angeles to New York in 2017, reports Entertainment Tonight.
A representative for Brandi told ET at the time, “She has been traveling extensively as part of an ongoing tour and several personal appearances. In recent days, she has taken more than 10 long-haul flights internationally Huh.” “She was in the studio all night last night until it was time to leave for her airport at 5:45 to catch a flight.”
The representative said at the time that “the stress of traveling and working so constantly has exhausted her.”
CBS News has reached out to a representative for Brandi and is awaiting a response.
