UPDATE: A rep for Mahone tells E! News, "Austin Mahone was admitted to the hospital with 104 temperature and is being treated for a blood clot and extreme inflammation in his throat as well as severe dehydration."
Austin Mahone is postponing his tour after being hospitalized for a severe sickness.
"Due to illness, Austin Mahone will unfortunately have to postpone his sold out MTV Artist to Watch Presents tour to 2014," a rep for the 17-year-old "What About Love" singer tells E! News. "The singer, who fell ill earlier this week and already postponed his Miami and Orlando shows, is now on strict doctor's orders to stay on rest and will need to reschedule all dates on the tour."
The rep added, "The tour featured support artists Becky G, Midnight Red, and W3 The Future. Ticket holders for the sold-out tour will be notified of the new 2014 dates and all details as soon as possible."
The tour postponement comes after Mahone took to Instagram to share a photo of himself in the hospital looking very under the weather. "I've never felt so bad," he captioned the pic, in which he's wearing a hospital gown.
His mom also took over his Twitter to reach out to fans about her son's illness. "Hey Mahomies its @michelemahone Austin is very ill. Unfortunately we are going to have to postpone the entire MTV Artist to Watch Tour," she wrote.
"Austin is very upset about this & we want to say we are sorry to all the Mahomies & their parents who have made arrangements to come out," she continued, adding, "We feel very bad but we have no choice but to POSTPONE the tour for now. Thank you for your prayers #PrayforAustin."
