Kehlani Postpones European Tour to Undergo ‘Unexpected Surgery’ on Her Stomach
Kehlani has postponed all of her European tour dates because she's undergoing unexpected surgery to repair her hernia.
She made the announcement via Instagram, where she posted a picture showcasing her hernia.
“I've enjoyed being on the road in Europe so so much these past weeks,” she explained. “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 Oakland singer has cancelled shows in Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Austria, France, Belgium and the Netherlands to allow herself time to have the surgery and heal, although she will refund tickets. The tour was in support of her debut album, SweetSexySavage, which debuted at no. 3 on the Billboard 200 last month, and hit the no. 1 slot on the R&B charts.
As of now, it's unclear whether her U.S. tour dates, which were slated to kick off on April 1, will be affected by the surgery.
