Michelle Williams Vacates Musical On Doctor’s Orders

Two weeks after joining the Broadway musical Once On This Island, Michelle Williams is leaving the show due to doctor’s advice.

“Effective immediately, Michelle T. Williams has been advised by her doctors to take a leave of absence from performing,” the Tony Award-winning show said in a statement without mentioning what is wrong with the former Destiny’s Child star.

Williams revealed in July that she checked herself into a mental health facility to help her struggle with depression.

And earlier this month, she split with 40-year-old pastor Chad Johnson.

The songstress is playing the role of Erzulie in the Broadway production.

Cassondra James will replace Wiliams until December 26, and the role’s original actress Lea Salonga will take over after that.

The Broadway production officially closes on January 6.
