American pop and country music singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has said she is “devastated” after a fan died before her concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Friday night.
She took to social media to mourn the passing of her fan.
“I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show,” Swift wrote.
“I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this. I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it,” she said.
“She was so incredibly beautiful and far too young,” she added.
Swift said she would not be able to speak about the incident from stage because she felt “overwhelmed by grief” whenever she tried to talk about it.
“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends,”she said.
She added that this was “the last thing” she thought would happen when she brought the tour to Brazil.
Swift said she had little other information about the death.
The global pop sensation arrived in Brazil earlier this week for her record-breaking Eras Tour.
