Singer George Michael has been forced to postpone his tour due to a bout with pneumonia. Michael was hospitalized in Vienna, Austria earlier this week. His publicist said in a statement that the always-in-the-news-for-something-raunchy-singer “is responding to treatment and slowly improving.”
The statement said that it is indeed pneumonia and any other speculation about his illness is “unfounded and untrue.” The Austrian doctors treating Michael said he had “severe community acquired pneumonia” but that “his condition has stabilized and he is responding to treatment.”
“From the current point of view, the time until recovery cannot be
estimated, but he will not be able to perform the rest of the tour,” they continued. “Besides medical treatment, complete rest, and peace and quiet are mandatory.”
Poor guy. Get well soon, George and do something outrageous!
