"That's not true. It's nothing serious. Julius just went for a checkup. He was grounded on routine visit to the Doctor on Friday because he hadn't been having enough rest as prescribed by the doctor," Bishop told Pulse.

"He's doing pretty well and might even come over to US to complete his much needed rest and routine doctor's visit," he concluded.

Meanwhile, the father of two was absent at his London show on Sunday, August 28, 2016 but was supported by Ali Baba and others who covered up for his absence.
