As a result of an undisclosed sickness, Ariana Grande was forced to postpone concerts in both Tampa and Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday.

In the wake of the last-minute rescheduling, the Bang Bang singer turned to Instagram to share an explanation with her fans of what she claims really happened.

The discovery came unexpectedly to Grande when she says she suffered an allergic reaction while eating tomatoes ahead of her Tampa gig on May 28.

According to the 25-year-old, her throat closed up after eating the fruit.

“There is nothing more unfair than an Italian woman developing an allergy to tomatoes in her mid-20s,” Grande wrote in the post.
