Cardi B has decided to pull out of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic Tour. The new mother announced her decision social media on Thursday (July 26), revealing the birth of her daughter altered her plans.
“As of today, I’ve decided I won’t be joining Bruno on tour this Fall,” she wrote. “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”
Mars expressed his support for Cardi and her decision in a Twitter post.
“I know the fans will understand,” he wrote. “You are absolutely doing the right thing. I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor.”
