Teyana Taylor found herself in a hospital bed instead of the stage.
Before her “Femme It Forward” show in Mashantucket, Conn. on Saturday (Nov. 27), the R&B singer was rushed to the emergency room and was forced to cancel her performance after her body “shut down.”
Taking to Instagram, she shared a photo of herself in a hospital bed, while thanking her fans for their support.
“Thank you for being so understanding,” wrote Teyana. “Y’all know Petunia don’t miss no shows & most importantly, know I’ve been leaving it all on tha stage for a month straight 1000%. So I am really saddened to have not been able to do the same for you last night.”
While she tried her best, she wasn’t physically able to get on stage. “My team & I tried everything down to the very last second to get me out on that stage, but my body simply just gave out, which actually started a few days ago. SHUT DOWN, my body actually low key betrayed me cause ah bitch was tryna get on that stage.”
She continued, “Y’all know I’m with the shits! y’all have seen me with a broken foot and all types of other crazy shit but still got on that stage and bodied it 😩😩 But honestly you have to listen to your body and know when to sit down; or it will definitely sit you down….. in the ER.”
She will take some time off to recover before returning to the road. “I’ve since got the proper fluids and nutrients put back into my body all night/morning & will take the next few off days to continue to recover.”
She thanked her tourmates Ari Lennox and Sevyn Streeter, as well as her daughter Junie, for holding things down in her absence. She plans to reschedule the Connecticut show and will honor tickets for a new date.
The “Femme It Forward” show is part of Teyana’s final “Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour,” which kicked off earlier this month. She plans to retire from music once the tour wraps.
