Morrissey has postponed his current South American tour, citing food poisoning.

Spin reports that the 14-date jaunt has been pulled because the former frontman of The Smiths and his backing band are suffering from "severe food poisoning". It has been said by a local news source that Morrissey has returned to the UK to receive specialist treatment from his 'personal physicians'.

Over the past year Morrissey has postponed and cancelled a host of tour dates because of his mother's and his own ill health. He recently revealed that he nearly died earlier this year due to medical problems.

Meanwhile, Morrissey has just received a £10,000 payout, winning a court case against Channel 4 after they failed to ask permission to use a Smiths song to promote a Gordon Ramsay Christmas special.

The TV station is understood to have paid the singer in recognition of its error after it used 'Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want' ahead of Gordon Ramsay's Christmas Cookalong Live show in 2011.

Morrissey has donated the cash to the animal rights charity People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (Peta) to fund a campaign attacking Fortnum & Mason for selling foie gras, reports The Guardian. Peta is using the £10,000 to buy advertising space for its new campaign criticising the store.
