Jerry Hall has withdrawn from the cast of the West End musical "High Society," saying she is suffering from the energy-sapping illness glandular fever.

The former model and ex-wife of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger had been absent for more than a week from the Cole Porter musical, in which she played the mother of the main female character, Tracy Lord.

Hall, 49, had received mixed reviews for her performance at the Shaftesbury Theatre in London. The show opened in October.

"It is with great sadness that I have to leave the cast of 'High Society' as I am suffering from Epstein-Barr virus (glandular fever) which I first fell ill with last year," Hall said Tuesday in a statement.
