Christina Augilera is said to be four months pregnant and was ordered to cancel two of her world tour dates after collapsing.
The ‘dirrty’ vocalist, reportedly experienced breathing difficulties during a performance in Melbourne, Australia, last Friday. It was not determined if the collapse was attributed to the alleged pregnancy or if it was just a case of exhaustion.
Although she reportedly was able to finish the concert, the sexy star was forced to miss some songs and an encore. Medical Technicians were summoned to the concert site and after treating Christina, they recommended that she cancel her two remaining Melbourne shows and advised her to rest.
Christina, who has yet to confirm or deny the pregnancy herself, apologized to her fans, claiming she was fighting a bout with the flu. “I want to personally apologize to all of my fans. I am truly disappointed that I won’t be able to share my show with you all.” she said. . .
Friends of Christina seem concerned that she is working to hard and want her to slow down. “She is a perfectionist and hates letting people down. But we’re hoping she will cancel the last two dates and return to Los Angeles to put her feet up.” Said a friend.
According to Christina’s estranged father, Fausto, his daughter is expecting her first child with husband Jordan Bratman. “I’m so excited. I want Christina to achieve all her goals. I wish her all the happiness in the world.” He Said.
