Victoria Monét informed fans on Monday (May 20) that she has been forced to cancel a series of planned festival appearances this summer due to health issues. “I am gutted to share that I will no longer be able to perform at Governors Ball (NYC), Roots Picnic (Philadelphia) or Blavity (Nashville) this June,” she wrote on her Instagram Story according to People.

She explained, “Candidly I have been dealing with some ongoing health issues that have to be addressed right now, but I will be back out there soon, that’s a promise! Please know it wasn’t an easy call but it’s definitely for the best. All other shows are still moving forward as planned.”

At press time Monét had not provided any further information on her health issues and her official website still had the three scotched dates listed: Roots Picnic (June 1), Governors Ball (June 9) and the Blavity House Party Music Festival (June 15), as well as the three other dates that appear to still be on the roster — Broccoli City Festival in Washington, DC (July 27), Lollapalooza in Chicago (August 1) and Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco (August 9).

Monét, 34, most recently performed at Coachella in April, where she celebrated getting her (literal) flowers from Beyoncé in the form of a beautiful bouquet from Bey. In the accompanying video, the mother of one showed the card to her three-year-old daughter, Hazel. People also noted that after her sets at Coachella Monét posted a pic of herself on stage in her Stories and revealed that she’s suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a chronic hormonal reproductive disorder whose symptoms can include weight gain, infertility, acne, thinning hair, enlarged ovaries and irregular periods.

Her Story included a photo of Monét with her back to the camera and the message, “Welp.. I gained a lot of weight and it went a lot of places lol face, arms, tummy and most effectively… datassss… I usually am so critical and frustrated by it because PCOS has me really messed up, but optimistically at least now there’s two moons on the stage.”
