Is Solange Knowles battling Bipolar disorder? The songstress has been rumored to be battling depression and was diagnosed with the mental disorder for some time now. The reports surfaced following the singer’s decision to cancel the European leg of her current tour.
In a statement released to the Pukkelpop Festival (via Singersroom) the singer reveals, “I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer….I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family….”
Knowles’ reference to sustaining her “mental/physical heath” raised a few eyebrows, which got speculators to speculate just what that meant.
She most notably spoke at a Trayvon Martin rally to fight against the injustice many felt was served upon the announcement of a not guilty verdict in favor of the late teen’s shooter, George Zimmerman.
The singer still plans to continue with her U.S. tour dates however.
