In a statement released by tour operator Live Nation, the singer has a labral tear on her right hip due to strenuous stunts. ‘She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately will force her to cancel the tour so she can heal,’ the operators said in the statement.
