Her absence from American Idol Live Tour sparks conspiracy. And now after some of the rumors circulating about her, Katharine McPhee finally, in a letter posted on fan site KatharineFans.com last week, laid the rumors to rest.
There on the Web site she wrote "I have heard a rumor that I will be missing the entire tour, I can assure you that that is completely false. I am looking to join the tour around the 21st. That is the doctors (sic) orders, not mine."
And explaining on the fact that she was apparently well enough to attend a Cosmo Girl photo shoot two weeks ago, the day after the tour kicked off without her in Manchester, New Hampshire, McPhee said "I want people to know that I am NOT bed ridden. I'm no longer contagious. I don't have to be a prisoner in my L.A. home. My management company is still trying to utilize this down time."
Also McPhee wrote in her posting, she is not purposefully missing performances and hopes to reunite with the tour Friday July 21st in Rochester, N.Y..
