Actor/rapper Brandon Mychal Smith has been forced to hang up his ice skates and quit "Skating With the Stars" after falling ill with a mystery ailment.
The "Sonny With a Chance" star initially pulled out of the TV competition last week after he was hospitalized with breathing difficulties. It later emerged he had also been vomiting during rehearsals and a representative for the show attributed the sickness to food poisoning.
But the 21-year-old found himself back in hospital after the incident and has undergone tests to determine the cause of his illness.
Sources close to Smith tell TMZ.com the actor has been left so weak by the ailment, he's barely able to stand. A rep also told JustJaredJr.com, "[He] will not be skating tonight and will be departing from the show due to illness. While he was able to return to practice last week after being taken to the hospital for a stomach virus, the show's sponsored doctor has advised him that he should not skate tonight as he is still sick."
We hope you get better soon Brandon! If you missed his recent Cambio Connect interview, check it out here.
