Just a few days ago, we reported Pink was forced to postpone an upcoming performance after falling ill.

One day after Pink alerted her fans she was under the weather, she was spotted lounging by the pool with her daughter.

The photos have since been published online.

After people started criticizing the pop star online, Pink issued a statement regarding the photos on her Instagram account.

Not that she felt the need to justify the paparazzi taking photos of her and her daughter sitting by the pool, but Pink wanted her fans to know that she had good reason to postpone her show.

Despite the fact that she was at the pool, Pink felt she had not recovered enough to perform and had been to the doctor multiple times prior to the sighting.

Her doctors advised her to rest and postpone the show so she would recover faster.

Pink wanted to clear the air and wanted fans to know she rarely postpones performances, but didn’t feel she could perform to the best of her ability if the show went on as planned.

I don't need to clear this up, but out of respect for my fans I will attempt it. I scheduled this tour meticulously, trying to do what was best for my children, while also putting on the best and most physically demanding and beautiful show of my life. This break in Byron has been scheduled since 2017, as a way to get outside the hotel and the winter and have some time with my children. I've already been sick twice (kids as well)on this Australian tour, but the first time we got sick, I was able to push through. This time, what these parasite paparazzi don't show you, is two doctor visits in Byron on two consecutive days, antibiotics, steroids, Vick's, nose spray, throat spray, more steroids, NyQuil, a screaming baby in the middle of the night, every night, while mama gives him warm baths and tells her daughter everything is fine. You can think whatever you want, it's your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life. I have never fucked off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling. I mother with everything I have whilst handling all the rest. The snark in this is unbelievable and makes me long for a nicer world. I'm doing the absolute best I can, and you can believe it or not. What they don't show you in this picture is me drinking water and lying down while my friends try to entertain my 7 year old who is asking me why these creepy men are surrounding us and pacing back and forth and taking pictures of her every move. I will see everyone tomorrow whether I'm better or not, and the postponed show will be rescheduled. As I said, I'm sorry to the real fans who this situation has affected. Onwards and upwards.
