    First of all, Beyoncé has been battling more than just pregnancy rumors, which her husband Jay-Z denied in an email to an NYC radio station program director. She had canceled a show in Belgium last week, leading to all kinds of speculation about her condition.

    Now, we've learned that Bey had tonsillitis early on in The Mrs. Carter Show world tour. Like the day after she hit the road. Yikes. Nothing like a nagging throat condition when you are just hitting the road for a major tour. Jeez!

    The tour began in Belgrade, Serbia on April 15, but a day later, she developed the throat issue.

    Still, she's Jay-Z, she's the queen and she soldiered on.

    In a video filmed before her gig in Zagreb, Croatia on April 17, Bey admitted, "I'm actually quite nervous because yesterday I was diagnosed with tonsillitis…hopefully I'll give Croatia a great concert. I'm gonna fight as hard as I can and I know that God has my back and God will protect me."

    Bey is SUCH a woman of faith.

    Maybe her earlier condition had something to do with last week's gig cancelation for dehydration and exhaustion, which are usually seen as a cover for something else?

    Check out footage from the tour:
