Grimes has commented on reports that she walked off stage mid-way through a set at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where she was supporting Florence And The Machine on Wednesday night.

According to Pitchfork, the musician halted her set part way through a performance of her song ‘World Princess Part II’, having told the audience while introducing the song: “We just had a really disturbing thing happen to us today, so sorry if my voice is shaking, it’s just kind of a fucked day” adding that she was “having a little trouble keeping it together”.

Tweeting about the incident, she said last night: “I will explain what happened at Barclays once I can safely and legally do so”.

She added: “In the meantime ‘someone from Reddit’ or fan accounts are not credible sources. Speculating about my mental health is not news. Thanks”.

Grimes is due to play dates in the UK next week around her Glastonbury appearance on Sunday 26 Jun.
