Lana Del Rey has just cancelled all of her concerts in Europe, due to a mystery illness.

“For medical reasons independent of our will, the artist (Lana Del Ray) has been forced to cancel all promotional activities planned in Europe over the coming days,” Del Rey’s record labels Polydor and Universal said in a joint statement.

She also bowed out of a Tuesday appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Lounge.

BBC Radio 1 noted on Twitter Monday, “We are very sorry to announce that @LanaDelRey has had to cancel her Live Lounge appearance tomorrow due to illness,” adding that she “really wanted to perform, but it is sadly not possible, and she is devastated to have to cancel. Get well soon Lana!”

Del Rey, who cancelled two private concerts in Paris last week, has previously discussed her struggles with an unidentified illness.

“I’d been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn’t figure out,” she said in an interview published in June. “That’s a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can’t figure out why.”
