Hip-hop star Teyana Taylor was hospitalized over the weekend after her body “shut down” before a Connecticut concert, she said in an Instagram post.

Taylor, who had been scheduled to perform Saturday at the Foxwoods Resort Casino, shared a photo on Sunday that shows her in an emergency room bed.

“My team & I tried everything down to the very last second to get me out on that stage, but my body simply just gave out, which actually started a few days ago,” Taylor wrote. “SHUT DOWN, my body actually low key betrayed me.”

The 30-year-old artist, who was born in Harlem, New York, said she is taking a few days off to recover, noting she’d received the “proper fluids and nutrients.”

“Y’all have seen me with a broken foot and all types of other crazy s— but still got on that stage and bodied it,” Taylor wrote. “But honestly you have to listen to your body and know when to sit down; or it will definitely sit you down.”


Taylor, who is married to former New York Knicks forward Iman Shumpert, vowed to reschedule Saturday’s show in Mashantucket.

Known for songs such as “Morning” and “Bare Wit Me,” Taylor is in the middle of her The Last Rose Petal farewell tour.
