US star Ariana Grande has reportedly cancelled a tour of Spain due to fears of catching Ebola.
The Ebola epidemic has so far killed over 4,000 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, spreading to Spain recently after a nurse contracted the virus.
Grande was expected to travel to Spain this month to promote her latest album ‘My Everything’, but now the trip has been pushed back to November with newspaper sources stating that the crisis was behind the decision.
“Ariana’s promo trip had to be cancelled – her team weren’t prepared to take any chances during the incubation period,” a source told The Sun.
“Of course, some people might think it’s an over-reaction but everyone agreed it was the right decision. It’s nothing against her Spanish fans and she was conscious to make sure the visit was put back in the diary in the future.”
No official statement has been made about the rescheduled dates.
Ariana Grande released ‘My Everything’ in August, her second consecutive Number One album in the United States. Its lead single ‘Problem’ featured Iggy Azalea and reached the top spot in the UK.
Grande recently appeared with R&B star The Weeknd on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, performing their collaboration ‘Love Me Harder’.
Meanwhile, rapper Cam’ron recently released his own brand of Ebola masks with his face on, despite the virus not being airborne.
