Solange Knowles Cancels European Tour Over Mental Health Issues

TEXT

The truth is out. For years, Hollywood insiders have whispered about Solange Knowles’s closely guarded secret: bipolar disorder. Beyonce’s younger sister has reportedly controlled her mood disorder with medications. But even after multiple medication adjustments she is still having issues controlling her erratic moods. Earlier this week Solange abruptly cancelled the European dates of her concert tour to remain close to her doctors here in the states.

From Singers Room:

Releasing a statement Wednesday, Solange cited mental and physical health as reason for removing the dates from her calendar.

“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was…but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record…I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family. I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed…… and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!”

In related news, Solange is still booked for shows in the U.S., including the Made in America Festival.

      How does her statement confirm that the “truth is out”?

      Though I’d understand being a little looney being viewed as the awkward stepsister.

      ABC’s Scandal is coming to BET with two major marathons in August, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

      The cable network will kick off the Kerry Washington starrer with season one and the first few installments from its sophomore season with the first of two 14-hour marathons on Saturday, Aug. 10 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The second is set for the following week on Aug. 17, also from 8 a.m.-10 p.m.

      The following Wednesday, Aug. 21, the political thriller about a D.C. fixer with professional and personal ties to the president (Tony Goldwyn) will finish up its second season and air for two hours with back-to-back episodes starting at 9 p.m.

      Once the episodes run out for both seasons, the series will start over with the first seven from its freshman run, airing in order on Wednesdays leading up to the third season premiere on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 10 p.m. on ABC.
