A representative for Whitney Houston has brushed off reports the star is in ill health, calling the rumors "rubbish." The singer, who kicked off her first world tour in a decade in December 2009, was recently hit by reports she is in a fragile condition.
U.S. tabloid the National Enquirer claimed the 46-year-old's health has declined in recent months, with family members begging the star to postpone her planned concerts. But a spokesperson for Houston is adamant the publication's story is not true, telling Gossip Cop the reports are "ridiculous" and "rubbish."
The worry about Whitney Houston's health sparked after an insider told National Enquirer that "Onstage, Whitney was obviously exhausted." The insider went to reveal, "She struggled to hit high notes, sweated profusely, wheezed through her songs and tripped over her own feet. Whitney walked backstage and folded over like a paper doll. She braced herself against a wall and screamed for water."
