Ariana Grande’s sickness, which led her to cancel two of her Sweetener performances in Florida, was caused by an adult-onset tomato allergy.
“Update: we discovered ….. that ….. I had an unfortunate allergic reaction to tomatoes and my throat pretty much closed,” she wrote in an Instagram story Wednesday. “Still feels like I’m swallowing a cactus but slowly making progress! Thank u all for your love and understanding.”
Grande noted that the shows would be rescheduled for November. She apologized to fans earlier this week for needing to cancel.
She added: “P.s. there is NOTHING MORE UNFAIR THAN AN ITALIAN WOMAN DEVELOPING AN ALLERGY TO TOMATOES IN HER MID TWENTIES…….”
Grande is set to resume performances tomorrow and Saturday in Miami.
