Ashley Roberts has said the Pussycat Dolls’ schedule was so gruelling she ended up being rushed to hospital with a suspected brain aneurysm.
The star, 40, made her name with the Don’t Cha singers, but revealed it took its toll.
Speaking on the Private Parts podcast she said in the end her body was “shutting down”.
What did Ashley Roberts say about her hospital scare?
Ashley said: “The thing was, being in a girl band, we make people a lot of money so the schedule was outrageous. I’m not going to lie, by the end I was breaking down. I was in the hospital.
“They thought I was having a brain aneurysm. I think it was just going, going, going and my body was just shutting down really.”
She went on: “I remember being in hospital, I was actually here in London, and I was like: ‘I’ve got to go to to Germany, I need to get on a plane now!’
“As I was walking to get the MRI because they thought I was having a brain aneurysm, my knee locked up and I got this viral arthritis so I couldn’t bend my knee. The doctor was like: ‘I think you need to just rest for a day.'”
“It’s wild,” she added.
