The 27-year-old singer has decided to spend more time with her family, especially her son, Juelz, and work on new music rather than hit the road overseas.

“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was…but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record…I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family. I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed…… and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!” she said in a statement.


Though Knowles won’t be hitting up Europe, fans can catch her throughout the United States where she’ll perform in LA (08/24), Philly (8/31) and Brooklyn (9/20).
