Jennifer Hudson rushed to hospital after 'GMA' show, treated for food poisoning
Jennifer Hudson spent some time in a hospital on Friday, June 10 after performing in New York's Central Park in a concert that aired on ABC show "Good Morning America."
The 29-year-old singer and Oscar-winning actress is currently promoting her new album, "I Remember Me," her upcoming film "Winnie", in which plays South African leader Nelson Mandela's wife, and a movie adaptation of "The Three Stooges", which is due in 2012 and sees her playing a nun.
"After performing on 'Good Morning America' earlier today, Jennifer Hudson went to the hospital due to severe abdominal pains," the star's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com in a statement on Friday. "She was treated for food poisoning and released."
On "Good Morning America," Hudson also addressed her recent weight loss. She is a spokesmodel for the "Weight Watchers" diet program and plans to detail how she shed about 80 pounds in a new memoir that is set for release in January 2012."I want to help inspire others in their weight loss journey," Hudson told "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts. "I want to put my story in word form and pass it along to other people trying to meet that challenge."
Hudson rose to fame as a finalist on the FOX singing contest series "American Idol" in 2004 and won an Oscar for her role in the 2006 musical film "Dreamgirls." She has since won a Grammy and appeared in the first "Sex and the City" movie in 2008 as well as two other films, including "The Secret Life of Bees" with Dakota Fanning.
