Cardi B has announced that she will no longer be performing on Bruno Mars‘ 24K Magic tour.
The rapper, who gave birth to her daughter Kulture Kiari earlier this month, has said that she isn’t physically or mentally ready to hit the road.
“I think I underestimated this whole mummy thing,” she wrote in a statement on Instagram, labelling the move as the “hardest decision to make”.
“I’m not ready to leave my baby behind,” she added. Cardi also mentioned that her doctors explained to her the health risks of bringing such a young baby on tour with her.
Cardi thanked Bruno for his understanding following her announcement. Soon after Cardi’s post, the Mars took to his own Instagram to share his support for the new mother.
“Most important thing is you and your family’s health,” he wrote. “You are absolutely doing the right thing.” The singer also vowed to play ‘Bodak Yellow’ every night in honour of Cardi.
