Pop star Jamelia underwent a hernia operation this week after collapsing in Spain. The British R&B star "doubled up in pain" while on set for a Spanish music program in Madrid on Thursday Nov 23rd.
It was like 'a bus had hit her stomach', Jamelia told her manager Jonathan Shalit. Jamelia then flew back to Britain and on Friday night Nov 24th had micro surgery at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, West London, for an umbilical hernia, which is related to the aftereffects of having children.
On that encounter, Jonathan said Jamelia is recovering in hospital and hopes to recover in time to perform with Meat Loaf at the Royal Variety Performance on Dec 4th.
