Cat Power May Cancel European Tour Due to Health, Bankruptcy Issues
Things aren't going well for Cat Power, aka Chan Marshall. The singer may have to cancel her European tour. The reason she might table the dates? Bankruptcy and heath issues -- a double whammy the indie rock queen wrote candidly about when sharing the news with fans via an Instagram photo and post.
The entirety of her post -- written in all caps, perhaps to highlight and emphasize the severity of her problems -- is below.
The singer talks about having angioedema, a condition that results in the swelling of skin and can lead to suffocation when there is a rapid progression. She also said her heart is broken due to all the drama surrounding her.
Marshall adds that she may need to come up with an alternate plan -- one where her health comes first. We can't blame her for prioritizing as such. While she didn't offer many details about her financial situation, bankruptcy is often a last resort and is a serious decision for a person to make.
As if she didn't have enough to contend with, Marshall split with longtime boyfriend Giovanni Ribisi earlier this year.
