According to a series of posts uploaded to Instagram yesterday, Lady Gaga has been rushed to the hospital in ‘severe pain’ and has been forced to cancel her upcoming performance at Rock In Rio Brazil.
The singer revealed in subsequent posts that “it is not simply hip pain or wear and tear from the road, I am in severe pain.”
A further statement, presumably from her management, on Instagram clarifies the situation.
“Lady Gaga is suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform. As a result, she sadly must withdraw from this Friday’s Rock In Rio performance. Lady Gaga is under the care of expert medical professionals. She sends her love to all her fans in Rio and thanks them for their support and understanding.”
I was taken to the hospital, it is not simply hip pain or wear and tear from the road, I am in severe pain. But am in good hands w/ the very best doctors. Please don't forget my love for you. 🙏 Remember years ago when I tattooed Rio on my neck, the tattoo was written by children in the favelas. 🇧🇷R✝️O You hold a special place in my heart I love you.
Lady Gaga also cancelled a show in Montreal, Canada, earlier this month after falling ill.
We wish her the best!
