Teyana Taylor Hospitalized After Her Body ‘Shuts Down’
Teyana Taylor found herself in the hospital on Sunday, after her body “shut down,” while on her The Last Rose Petal Tour.
In an Instagram post the 30-year-old singer said her body “gave out,” forcing her to cancel her Connecticut performance last minute on Saturday.
“My team & I tried everything down to the very last second to get me out on that stage, but my body simply just gave out, which actually started a few days ago,” she wrote. “SHUT DOWN, my body actually low key betrayed me cause ah bitch was tryna get on that stage 🙄”
Taylor was scheduled to perform along with Ari Lennox and Sevyn Streeter for the “Femme It Forward” concert series.
The singer thanked her fans, dubbed rose petals, for understanding why she was absent from the show: “Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all the warm love, sweet videos & prayers from my CT rose petals…. I love y’all!” she said. “Thank you for being so understanding. Y’all know Petunia don’t miss no shows & most importantly, know I’ve been leaving it all on tha stage for a month straight 1000%.”
The performer has had a month jam-packed with shows in cities across North America including Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Toronto and New York.

The Last Rose Petal Tour was announced as Taylor’s last set of performances after she revealed her retirement from music earlier this year, but the multi-talented star promised she’d return to Connecticut to make it up to those who were looking forward to seeing her.
“I promise I will be back to CT rescheduled and better than ever & all tickets will be honored for yesterday’s show!!!!” she said.
“Y’all know I’m with the s—ts!” she told fans, “y’all have seen me with a broken foot and all types of other crazy shit but still got on that stage and bodied it 😩😩 But honestly you have to listen to your body and know when to sit down; or it will definitely sit you down….. in the ER 😑 mine sat my ass down in the ER for sure but I’ve since got the proper fluids and nutrients put back into my body all night/morning & will take the next few off days to continue to recover.”
The singer tweeted that she would be ready for the tour’s final stop in Atlanta on Tuesday.
“I’m doing much better! Just catching up on lots of rest until it’s time to hit dat stage again Tuesday! See you soon,” she said.
