U.S. audiences may not be seeing much of British singer Amy Winehouse for the time being, as all of her U.S. appearances have been canceled.
Winehouse’s U.S. record label, Universal Republic Records, released the following statement to “Access Hollywood”:
“In a continued effort to support Amy Winehouse’s well being, in addition to the postponement of her U.S. tour, all other U.S. appearances have been canceled.”
Since being hospitalized earlier this month due to “severe exhaustion,” Winehouse’s U.S. tour has been postponed twice. August dates were put on hold, and the postponement was then extended through the month of September.
Winehouse has been the subject of many reports alleging alcohol and drug abuse, and was rumored to have spent a short time in a rehabilitation facility following her hospitalization.
While those reports have not been confirmed by the singer or her management, Winehouse’s father-in-law called for a boycott on buying her albums this week to force the singer to seek help for what he called a “drug addiction.”
Winehouse’s representative said in a statement to “Access” last week that “Amy has been ordered to rest and is working with medical professionals to address her health.”
Winehouse was scheduled to appear at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 9 in Las Vegas, but it is likely she will not be attending in light of today’s news.
The “Rehab” singer is nominated for three VMAs, including female artist of the year.
