August Alsina appears to still be experiencing ailing health, even a month after his onstage collapse at Irving Plaza in New York City. The R&B star subsequently fell into a coma for three days after that fall, and it appears that the singer is not out of the woods yet. Alsina cancelled a performance in the United Arab Emirates last week and this weekend had to put the brakes on a show in London at Kevin Hart’s HartBeat Weekend.

“Apologies to my London/UK fans, @KevinHart4real and #HartBeatWeekend,” Alsina tweeted. “Docs advised me not to fly, so my performance tomorrow is canceled.”

A spokesperson for the star also issued a statement to Billboard.

“Due to the well-publicized fall from a stage in New York last month which caused August to be hospitalized for more than a week, his medical team has advised him that it would be unwise to travel such distance so soon into his recovery,” the statement says.

“August has asked us to convey his disappointment and sadness that he will be unable to perform. We all wish him the very best of luck and a speedy recovery.”
