When it comes to R&B singers these days, personal troubles seem to be the least of their worries. Fantasia was ready to promote her album just weeks after her reported suicide attempt. And now Faith Evans says she’s resuming work on her new music video just days after her arrest on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving.
The singer took to Twitter to thank fans for their well-wishes and assured them that a music video is still on the way.
“Hi Faithfuls…I am on the set of my new video for my single ’Gone Already.’ I’m sure by now most of you heard that I was detained on suspicion of a DUI,” she tweeted on Monday (August 23). “After completing a full day of wardrobe prep I was stopped at a random checkpoint. I’m fine and well, and thank you for your prayers, kind words and concerns. I can’t wait for you all to see my new video & look forward to hearing from u guys…Fizzy,” she continued.
On Saturday, Evans was pulled over at a checkpoint near Los Angeles in Marina del Rey, California, and arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving where she was then taken into police custody at 10:40 p.m. According to The Associated Press, the singer’s car was impounded as she was held for a few hours before being released on bail the following morning.
In addition to working on new music, the singer is reportedly filming her own reality show, titled “It’s All About Faith,” which will follow Evans as she makes her return to the music scene.
