Whitney Houston

Former pop superstar Whitney Houston has canceled the first three British dates of her comeback tour after doctors in Paris diagnosed her with a severe respiratory infection. Whitney canned a show on Tuesday, the first European gig of her Nothing But Love World Tour, after she became sick. Reports in the French press are suggesting the star was admitted to a Parisian hospital, while a representative for Whitney confirms Houston was treated by medics for chronic rhino pharyngitis, a swelling of the membranes in the nose and throat. Whitney has now postponed three of her upcoming shows in the U.K. so she can recover. A statement from Houston's record label reads, "Doctors visited Whitney late last night in Paris and confirmed that she was suffering from an upper respiratory infection. Upon medical advice Whitney has been advised that she cannot perform to allow her time to recover."
