American Idol Alum Jennifer Hudson Rushed to Hospital, Was Weight Loss to Blame?

June 10, 2011 12:53 PM by Shayla Perry

Oscar-winning actress and American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson was rushed to an undisclosed hospital Friday morning after complaining of stomach pain between scheduled appearances for ABC‘s Good Morning America and CBSEarly Show. Hudson’s rep told reporters and fans that she was “unable to perform” due to her health issues, but was it the singer-turned-actress’ rapid weight loss that led to her hospitalization?

Jennifer Hudson was released from the hospital after being treated for food poisoning.

As a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, Hudson has gone through a dramatic transformation in the last year, dropping a lot of weight in what seems like a short amount of time. After today’s health scare though, fans who’ve followed the star since she rose to fame on the Fox reality show are starting to speculate that Jennifer’s weight loss may be affecting her health — and not in a good way.

In addition to the two appearances on Good Morning America and The Early Show, Hudson has also been hard at work penning a memoir, working on two films, and raising son, David Daniel Otunga, Jr. — a schedule that is no doubt hard to manage while trying to maintain healthy eating habits.

Not long ago, Hudson revealed that her fiance, David Otunga, has had a difficult time adjusting to her new body, and even advised her to stop losing weight, but since then, it appears that the former American Idol contestant has shed even more pounds.

When asked how she stays on track with her fitness goals, the Weight Watchers spokesperson replied, “You have to keep doing what you did to get to that point, and you’ll get further. I always say if you can keep at it…you got to that point, don’t fix something that’s not broke. Keep that going and keep it consistent, and you’ll get there.”

But at what point is it enough?

Is Jennifer Hudson’s weight loss getting out of control?

    “…rapid weight loss that led to her hospitalization? Jennifer Hudson was released from the hospital after being treated for food poisoning.” I’ve never heard of “rapid weight loss” causing food poisoning!
