She released a statement before last week's show that read:
“We are sorry to have to announce that the Evening With The Robertson’s Show at the 159th Annual Bloomsburg Fair has been cancelled due to an unexpected conflict in scheduling,” the fair announced. “The Evening With The Robertsons was to feature A & E’ Duck Dynasty stars Willie & Korie Robertson, who were going to answer questions submitted by local fans of the show, who wanted to know how the Robertsons as a couple have raised their children, operated a successful business, dealt with celebrity status, and maintained successful, loving marriage for many years.”
“My grandpa actually had to go to the hospital tonight. So a lot of them are with him,” Sadie reportedly told 'Life & Style' following the results show on Wednesday.
However, according to Sadie’s mother, Korie, it was all just a misunderstanding. In fact, Korie Robertson told Radar Online recently that it was not Phil that was hospitalized.
Korie went on to explain what had actually happened by saying, “It was my dad who was in the hospital, not Phil.” As for what Korie’s dad was hospitalized for, Korie explained: “He had a bad hernia that was causing problems. He is fine now,” adding that he will have to head home for surgery. At the time, Korie’s dad was in L.A. to cheer his granddaughter on as she rocked the dance floor on Dancing With The Stars. Most of us just assumed when Sadie said her “grandfather,” she meant Phil.
