The “Say Somethin'” singer’s rep tells the website that the 17-year-old first entered the hospital with a 104-degree fever Thursday morning before his diagnosis. Mahone is also reportedly receiving treatment for severe dehydration.
Previously, the young crooner shared an Instagram (seen above) of his hospital visit, writing alongside the photo, “I’ve never felt so bad.”
Since then, Mahone has postponed his MTV Artist to Watch Tour in light of the his recent health issues. Mahone’s team has issued out the following statement on behalf of the ill singer:
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
