Beyoncé cancels Belgium gig because of exhaustion and dehydration

Rumours that the star is pregnant with her second child are currently circulating

Beyonce has cancelled her planned concert tonight (May 14) in Belgium because of exhaustion and dehydration.

Her publicist released a statement to the Associated Press which said that the singer has been advised by doctors to rest. Her show at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp will be rescheduled. It is not known if she will play her next tour date, which is at the same venue tomorrow (May 15). “She is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision,” reads the statement.

Rumours that the star is pregnant with her second child are currently circulating, with the concert cancellation making fans suspect that there might be truth in the gossip. Beyoncé’s Mrs Carter World Tour is due to finish in New York on August 5.
