Teyana Taylor is now recovering in a Connecticut hospital after she says her body “shut down” and she was forced to cancel Saturday night’s scheduled concert at Femme It Forward in Mashantucket, CT.

The MTV VMA winner is performing on The Last Rose Petal…Farewell Tour.

“SHUT DOWN, my body actually low key betrayed me,” Taylor commented on an Instagram photo of herself lying in a hospital bed as she thanked her fans for understanding the last-minute cancellation of her show. “Y’all have seen me with a broken foot and all types of other crazy s**t but still got on that stage and bodied it.” 

The singer/actress/choreographer/fashion designer said she is receiving the care she needs.

“I’ve since got the proper fluids and nutrients put back into my body all night/morning & will take the next few off days to continue to recover,” the 30-year-old entertainer continued.

Taylor promised fans the show would be rescheduled for a future date and that all tickets would be honored.

She concluded the lengthy post with many thanks. “Shoutout to my lovelies @arilennox & @sevyn for holdin it downnnnn!… Shout to @babyjunie4 for holding it down for mommy,” Teyana added.

Several stars sent her heart-warming messages. Niecy Nash wrote, “Wishing you a speedy recovery.” Erykah Badu commented, “Bless up,” while Marlon Wayans posted, “Get well soon sis, love you. You’re a real one. We give our best us to the people that love us… take care of you.”

Taylor was scheduled to perform the final show on the tour Tuesday in Atlanta. 

One week ago, Teyana’s husband, Iman Shumpert, became the first NBA player to win Dancing with the Stars as he took home the mirrorball trophy with his professional partner, Daniella Karagach.
