Michelle Williams Ordered To Quit Broadway Play Days After Ending Her Engagement

"She's not in a good place."

Recording artist and rising Broadway star Michelle Williams has been extremely vocal about her mental health struggles over the last few months.

The singer has decided to take a leave of absence from her role as goddess Erzulie in the Broadway production of Once On This Island.

Less than two weeks after joining the show's cast, a rep for Once On This Island revealed, "Effective immediately, Michelle T. Williams has been advised by her doctors to take a leave of absence from performing."

Radar Online received a statement from a source close to the singer who accused Williams of "not being in a good place."

News of Williams' departure comes days after she announced that she and Pastor Chad Johnson called off their engagement. The source added, "She's not cooperating. She is shut down," and explained how she didn't show up for recent tapings of her OWN series Chad Loves Michelle.
