At a concern Thursday night in Grand Rapids, Michigan, fans reported Simpson broke into tears several times during her performance and told the crowd she felt like "running off the stage."

"She would look right at the camera and say, 'Sorry I can’t do it,'" a fan said after the show.

"She would mouth in to the microphone, 'Please God help me through this,'" the fan added.

Earlier this week, unflattering pictures of Simpson appeared on the internet and in magazines. Many carried snarky captions highlighting her apparent weight gain.

According to her spokesperson, Simpson was not feeling well and was upset because she felt she had disappointed her fans who had come to the concert.
