Jennifer Hudson suffers food poisoning

Jennifer Hudson was all smiles in the photo above during her performance at ABC's "Good Morning America Summer Concert Series" on Friday, but that soon changed.

A rep for the Academy Award-winning singer confirmed that Hudson fell ill and was taken to a New York City hospital.

“After performing on ‘Good Morning America’ earlier today, Jennifer Hudson went to the hospital due to severe abdominal pains," the rep said in a statement. "She was treated for food poisoning and released.”

Hudson performed in Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield for "GMA" before she got sick, but a second performance slated for CBS' "Early Show" had to be canceled. The newly svelte Hudson has been promoting her new album, "I Remember Me" which features the debut single "Where You At."

    Lower left abdominal pain is the most common area for abdominal pain. You will know how debilitating lower left abdominal pain can be – whether it is an acute episode or chronic condition. The effects of abdominal pain can be devastating not just for the person living with the problem, but also for their family, friends and carers. The simplest chores and activities from shopping to walking may become impossible. Constant physical pain can impact on an individual’s emotional well-being. People living with a chronic condition may become depressed, and in some cases driven to suicide to escape the pain!are totally unsuitable. They are too bulky, move out of position, compact and cause oreness...

      Talented? No really. See the black community has to be placated with prizes and awards they DONT DESERVE or they get all upset and start rioting like a group of chimps.

    She did Good Morning Americas concert just fine and in full this morning. I watched it and it was pretty good. Didnt appear sick at all. Maybe she just didnt want to do CBS too. And that was an easy out for her? Who knows? Maybe it was a complication from losing all that weight so quickly. Well she sure could stand to lose at least another 50 lbs and then she might look good. But for now shes still a chubby bubby. Im sure theres a chubby chaser out there wholl still like her chubby bubby.

    Please. That girl had surgery. She is denying it just like Starr Jones, but the truth will come out. I love WW but no way she lost 100 pounds in 7 months without surgery.

    For all those of you who choose to bash the fabulous and glamorous Ms Husdon for her weight ought to be ashamed of themselves. Grow up you little frat boys. She is longer fat! She looks great!!! I am so proud of her.
    Of course, when she had her lipo, she did save the fat they drained out so she can use it in her deep fryer.

      @Samantha she was beautiful before she lost the weight, she just happens to be thinner then she was.

      Anyone who is clowning her because of her weight now need to calm down.

      Hope she is feeling better and its nothing more then a little stomach bug.

    Folks, it wasn't food poisoning. It is just stomach irritation because she ate a pineapple without cutting it up first.

      She ate Jenny Craig a couple months ago. That's why you haven't seen her in any new commercials.
