Star addresses health fears after cancelling shows


She is renowned as being one of the most dedicated singers out there, so fans were left both worried and surprised when Jessie J announced this week that she was cancelling her Australian tour.

Her announcement was followed by claims that she was forced to pull out of the scheduled shows over her pre-existing heart condition, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.

A source claimed that the condition, which can leave the sufferer short of breath and with a fast and irregular heartbeat, was threatening the Do It Like A Dude singer's ability to sing live, with a publication even quoting her as saying that she may have to lip sync to stay well.

In the midst of the reports, however, Jessie has spoken out to assure her fans that she will not be lip syncing any time soon.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the 26-year-old said: "I am ok. I'm feeling better. I was really unwell…I don't have to mime to hit my high notes on stage. Who believed it? 'Fess up! Made me laugh because it was so [stupid]."

She went on to apologise to all the fans she had let down over the decision, admitting that she had "cried a lot" over making the call.
