Blu Cantrell suffered a near-fatal collapse in South Africa after getting deep vein thrombosis on a flight.
The singer was rushed to hospital in Johannesburg after falling ill at the airport after she arrived from LA. Doctors diagnosed a blood clot caused by DVT also called economy-class syndrome which can kill.
Blu, at No 1 last October with Breathe, was kept in hospital for three days and had to cancel a tour of South Africa.
An aide told me ‘She is fine now but it was a serious situation. It could have been fatal ‘
Blu’s been feeling down lately prior to this. She had been dumped by label BMG.
