Michelle Williams Leaves New Broadway Play Just Days After Joining Cast

Published: Thursday 13th Dec 2018 by Rashad

More bad news for fans of Destiny’s Child diva Michelle Williams.

The ‘Fearless’ singer, who stunned her followers last week with the announcement she was splitting from fiance Chad Johnson (with whom she shares the OWN reality show, ‘Chad Loves Michelle’), is reportedly set to depart from another love:  her latest Broadway outing.


Details inside:

As we reported here, Williams joined the cast of Broadway’s ‘Once on This Island’ to play the role of  “Erzulie.”  Starting her run on November 30, the ‘Heard a Word’ singer was scheduled to stay onboard until the show’s close on January 6th.

However, as a recently issued press release reveals, she has abruptly exited the show due to doctor’s orders. According to ET [source]:

…[Williams] will be replaced by her understudy, Cassondra James, from now until Dec. 26. Lea Salonga, who originated the role, will then step in from Dec. 27 through its final performance on Jan. 6.

While the specific health ailment causing her departure was not listed in the release, sources believe it to be related to her ongoing battle with mental health – a cause she’s not only championed but been very public about her struggles with.

Here’s hoping the best for Michelle our belle!

    …Praying for my girl to recover. She looks so happy when she is on stage performing. Maybe her doctor is wrong. I think the stage is her home and an escape from depression.

      THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SATAN! I don’t understand why some humans still believe that there is some terrifying invisible creature running around the entire Earth simultaneously influencing countless people to do bad things.

    I watched her show, while CHAD came off as GAY as RuPaul. Michelle actually came off as LIKEABLE and cool.
