Ariana Grande has recently cancelled two shows on her 'sweetener' tour, having to reschedule the two concerts in Tampa and Orlando. After revealing on her Instagram Story that she was not well enough to perform, the star has now revealed that it was all due to a newly developed allergy to tomatoes!

Taking to Instagram yesterday (29th May), the star uploaded a short video of her dog Toulouse, a new trend on the 'God Is A Woman' singer's profile. Captioning the video, she wrote, 'update: we discovered ..... that ..... i had an unfortunate allergic reaction to tomatoes and my throat pretty much closed. still feels like i’m swallowing a cactus but slowly making progress! thank u all for your love and understanding. can’t wait to get back to performing and to make it up to Tampa and Orlando in November.' [sic]

Adding humour to the situation, the 25-year-old added, 'p.s. there is NOTHING MORE UNFAIR THAN AN ITALIAN WOMAN DEVELOPING AN ALLERGY TO TOMATOES IN HER MID TWENTIES.......' [sic]

Now take a look at Ariana Grande's relationship timeline...

Herself. YAAAS.

In thank u, next Ariana serves some unapologetic feminism as she claims she's now in a relationship with herself. YAS, queen.

Fans were quick to support the star, with one writing, 'Health is the most important baby take care of yourself and take your time we love you🖤' [sic], and another writing, 'an Italian allergic to tomatoes.. i’m in shock' [sic].

The 'thank' singer, who recently had the 'coolest' day of her life at NASA HQ, has rescheduled the tour dates to 24th November in Tampa, and 25th November in Orlando.

Despite saying it still feels like she is 'swallowing a cactus', the 'Dangerous Woman' singer has assured her fans that she is on the mend.
