"As a result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North America leg of the Justice Tour.

“After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour. I performed six live shows but it took a real toll on me."

"This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil. After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now.

"So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be okay but I need time to rest and get better. I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of Justice to the world.

“Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately."
