Cardi B Cancels Performance Due to Surgery Complications

Cardi B has dropped out of her performance at a Memorial Day Weekend concert in Maryland due to complications from recent cosmetic surgeries.

The “Money” rapper was set to headline the 92Q Spring Bling Festival on Friday night in Baltimore, but had to cancel after experiencing complications from her recent liposuction and breast augmentation. According to TMZ, it become so bad that she is unable to perform.

Her doctors have recommended that she takes a couple of weeks to let the swelling go down and for her body to fully recover.

Cardi has been going non-stop, performing at festivals including Rolling Loud Miami and the launch party for her Fashion Nova collection. But the heavy workload is seemingly taking a toll on her body.

During her performance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis on May 5, the 26-year-old rapper admitted that she shouldn’t be on stage. “I shouldn’t really be performing,” she told the crowd. “I should have canceled today because moving too much is gonna f**k up my lipo. But bitch I’m still gonna get this motherfu**ing money bag, let’s go!”

Cardi has been open about her plastic surgery. “I still feel like I got a lot of love handles right here,” she said following the birth to her daughter Kulture in July. “It’s not much but it’s like—I’m used to having, like, a real tight stomach … I might just get a little lipo, you know what I’m sayin’.”

Organizers for 92Q’s Spring Bling have already announced a makeup date of Sept. 8 for the festival, which also features Yo Gotti and Blueface. All tickets are transferable for the new date.
