Cardi B has postponed several performances due to complications from her recent liposuction and breast augmentation procedures, several reports claim.


The rapper was MIA at her show in El Paso Texas yesterday due to "circumstances beyond her control," according to a press release quoted by E! News.

Other upcoming performances that have been postponed by Cardi include a Memorial Day Weekend concert at the 92Q Spring Bling Festival in Baltimore, Maryland, and others in Saratoga Springs and Syracuse, New York.

According to TMZ, the Maryland concert has been postponed to September 8 while Billboard notes that the Saratoga Springs and Syracuse shows have been moved to September 6 and 7 respectively.


A source told E! News that the “Money” rapper wiped her schedule for the entire month of May and has been advised by doctors to take the time to heal from her recent plastic surgery procedures.

Cardi’s rep confirmed this in a statement obtained by the entertainment news outlet:

"Cardi was overzealous in getting back to work, she didn't take the time necessary to fully recover from her surgery. Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and she has been given strict doctors orders to pull out of the rest of her performances in May. She's very disappointed as she hates to let her fans down. She reassures them that she will see them in September."



Earlier this month, while performing at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Cardi revealed that she had help getting her post-baby body following the birth of her daughter, Kulture, last July.

"I should have canceled today... I shouldn't really be performing because moving too much is gonna [expletive] up my lipo,” the Grammy winner informed fans.



Cardi has always been one to keep up with the show at all costs, like last year when she shocked fans by appearing onstage alongside her rapper hubby, Offset, heavily pregnant while wearing a fitted dress and pointy heels.

The Bronx rapper also has experience with plastic surgery complications dating back to her stripper days. Cardi confessed to having fillers injected into her butt by an illegal practitioner in Queens and suffering “the craziest pain ever” afterward.

“I felt like I was gonna pass out,” she recalled. “I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days."

Get well soon, Cardi.
