Drake Cancels European Tour For Sick Mom
Rap star Drake is currently being primed to become the next rap superstar but that doesn't mean that he is above putting his career on hold when his family needs him.
The Canadian rapper (and former Degrassi: The Next Generation star) has canceled his European tour due to a family emergency. Apparently, Drake's mother–who is reportedly very sick–has to undergo a serious operation and Drake wants to be able to be there for his mom:
Despite my best hopes, it is apparent that my mother will need surgery earlier than anticipated. In light of this news, I have made the difficult decision to cancel my European tour in order to support her during her recovery, just as she supported me through the years.
I cannot thank my European fans enough and look forward to performing abroad soon. I ask everyone to please respect my family's privacy during this time.
We hope your mother has a speedy recovery, Drake!
