Pink is currently on the Australian leg of her ‘Beautiful Trauma’ world tour, but was forced to cancel shows in Sydney earlier this week after she was rushed to hospital.

The severity of the singer’s illness has now come to light.

The 38-year-old was, in fact, “seriously ill” according to Live Nation representative Michael Coppel.

“She suffered very serious attacks,” he told The Herald Sun. “She couldn’t breathe and was doubled over in pain and had to be taken to hospital in an emergency ambulance.”

Pink has now be discharged, but is still “quite weak”.

Despite that, she’s set to perform on Saturday in Sydney and new dates have also been announced for her cancelled shows.

While most new dates are in September, the August 3rd performance is now being held on August 24. The rest will happen on September 17, 18 and 19.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday afternoon, the singer apologised for any ticket holders who had been affected.

“We were absolutely planning on going ahead with the show, and about 20 minutes before I left for soundcheck, I was rushed to the hospital, in excruciating pain,” she wrote on Instagram.

“A lot of you know how physical my shows are, and that I don’t just stand in front a microphone and sing,” she explained.  “I flip, dance, fly, harness, silk, and scream my way through a total sh*t show of awesomeness (no pun intended).” 

The mum of two went on to thank her fans for their support and praise the hospital staff “for getting me home to my kids”.

We’re wishing Pink a speedy recovery.
