That was a short visit! Whitney Houston is already out of the hospital, after checking in earlier this week for a respiratory infection.
Houston released a statement to People saying,
"I'm feeling great. I'm just ready to move on and continue my world tour."
There was a lot of speculation that the hospital visit was drug-related, and that she’d relapsed. But Whitney denies the allegations, even though she had to postpone the first four shows on her European tour.
Whitney claims her hospitalization was doctor’s orders, as a result of her allergies. "My health is terrific," she said. "But this is a time when I get a lot of allergies."
Houston's tour will resume on April 13 in Birmingham, England, and will continue through June. "I'm doing what I love to do, which is singing," Houston says. "The best part is seeing all of my fans around the world."
Do you believe her that she just had allergies? We’ve been hearing rumors lately that she’s back on drugs, and it just seems odd that a sudden hospitalization would have nothing to do with that! Either way, we’re happy she’s feeling well again!
