According to Isolezwe the actress was apparently not feeling well last week, but on Friday her health deteriorated. One of their sources who didn't want to be named for fear of victimization said, on Friday the actress started throwing up and complained about feeling dizzy.
The source said on Monday she eventually collapsed on set and had to stop filming her scenes. The source said it became evident that she was not feeling well because she was throwing up but it was unclear what the causes of the sickness were.
The source further said on Monday they were shocked to hear that she had to be rushed to hospital after collapsing"This shocked many people, the producers had to call actors to inform them that she won't be reporting for duty due to her sickness " said the Source.
Another source said after being checked by the doctors they found out she was pregnant. "The doctors had to check her and find out that she was sick because of pregnancy, I don't know how she is feeling now but when she left she was not feeling well everyone was shocked to see her collapsing because many actors have collapsed on the set before."
