Singer Michelle Williams has been forced to scrap plans to visit friends in New York after falling ill with a nasty cough.
The former Destiny's Child star was due to fly to the Big Apple earlier this week (begs03Jan11) but she had to axe the trip and give up tickets to Wednesday night's (05Jan11) basketball game between the New Jersey Nets and her home team the Chicago Bulls so she could remain in bed on doctors' orders.
Taking to her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Went to doc's office for my cough, got my meds...hibernation for rest of week! Hate I'll miss the Nets/Bulls game...was supposed 2 go 2 NY (sic)!"
But the cancellation saved Williams some disappointment - her beloved Bulls just missed out on victory in the tight match, losing 94 to 96.
