Cardi B has shared pictures of her swollen feet as an explanation for her last minute decision to pull out of a headline slot at Manchester’s Parklife festival at the weekend. She has cancelled numerous shows in recent weeks, blaming complications from recent plastic surgery.

The rapper was due to headline the Saturday night of this year’s Parklife, but pulled out on Wednesday. Mark Ronson stepped in as an even shorter notice replacement on Saturday morning. The latest cancellation comes after Cardi B pulled out of various shows last month.

In recent Instagram story broadcasts, the rapper has told fans that she has been forced to pull out of the shows in order to recover from breast surgery and liposuction – doctors having told her that this will take longer than the month she originally estimated herself.

She explained recently: “My doctor was like, ‘Yo, you cannot be doing all these shows because you’re not fully healed and I keep telling you this and then if something happens to you, you gonna to try to blame me”.

On how much it pains her to disappoint her fans, she added: “I hate cancelling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict and I get paid a lot of money for these shows”.

She has hinted at further cancellations, although at this stage it is not entirely clear which dates in the coming weeks – which includes more UK festival sets – are being pulled.

Responding to continued claims by some that she is actually cancelling shows due to poor ticket sales, on Saturday she posted a picture of her swollen feet after a flight.

“Look how swollen my feet get every time I take flights”, she wrote. “My stomach gets even more puffy. [These are the] reasons why my doctor told me to chill on shows, cos my feet and stomach burn when I get puffed up. NOT due to ticket sales”.

Anyway, Cardi recently released new track ‘Press’, in which she told the media to stop reporting on her, so that’s what we’ll do right now.
