Omar did not elaborate in his post, and a rep for the star did not immediately respond to Entertainment Weekly's request for further comment.

PEOPLE noted that Omar broke the health news two days after he posted an Instagram Reel of dancers auditioning to join his tour. "The most special thing about today's auditions is seeing that there are people who want to dare to dream with me," he wrote Saturday. "Thank you to each of you who gave your all on the dance floor! This second stage of the tour comes with everything."

Notably, the artist appeared to end his years-long feud with fellow musician Daddy Yankee in December, after the latter announced his retirement.
