Absolutely horrifying. Poor thing!
Cheryl Tweedy was apparently hospitalized after contracting malaria during a vacation with Derek Hough to Tanzania!
The singer, who is thought to have picked up the disease by being bitten by a mosquito, apparently thought she was just overtired and even joked that she was hungover before she fainted at a photoshoot on Saturday!
A source claims:
'Cheryl hadn't been feeling herself for about a week [after returning on June 22]. She was feeling tired and listless. In the end, this must have been the beginnings of the [illness]. During Sunday afternoon, Cheryl went downhill quickly. She was sweating and shaking and in a bad way. Doctors are concerned that her immune system is weaker because she's been working so hard. They believe this may make it harder for her to recover quickly.'
She tested positive for malaria yesterday, and is expected to be in the hospital for the next few days before being moved back home to finish her recovery over the next few weeks.
Rest up and feel better, bb! Hang in there!
