Kehlani has been forced to postpone the remaining tour dates on her European leg until further notice.
The 21-year-old is getting emergency surgery to repair an umbilical hernia. In case anyone attempted to doubt her abrupt decision to go under the knife, she posted an image that revealed the protrusion of tissue.
“I’ve enjoyed being on the road in Europe so so much these past weeks,” the “Gangsta” hitmaker shared Tuesday in an Instagram post. “I’m deeply saddened to announce that I have to fly home for sudden unexpected surgery on my stomach, as some of you know I have a hernia (that squishy ball thingy above my belly button) and it’s gotten to a point if necessary surgery.”
The R&B singer later reassured fans via Twitter that each show will be refunded and rescheduled. “Taking care of this is most important right now,” she wrote. “I love you all so much. thank you for everything.”
Kehlani was on the road in support of her debut album SweetSexySavage, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 last month and No. 1 on the R&B Albums chart.
This means Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Austria, France, Belgium and Netherlands dates will be moved. It is currently unknown whether her upcoming U.S. tour, set to kick off April 1 in Philadelphia, is also going to be affected due to the procedure.
We are wishing Kehlani a healthy and speedy recovery.
