Pink was admitted to hospital, a week after cancelling her Sydney concerts.

The singer was criticised online after being spotted on a beach last week after cancelling her shows, with fans thinking that she had just ‘pulled a sickie’.

The 38-year-old took to Instagram to defend herself, with a lengthy post about “parasite paparazzi” convincing fans that she was not actually sick.

I don’t need to clear this up, but out of respect for my fans I will attempt it. I scheduled this tour meticulously, trying to do what was best for my children, while also putting on the best and most physically demanding and beautiful show of my life. This break in Byron has been scheduled since 2017, as a way to get outside the hotel and the winter and have some time with my children. I’ve already been sick twice (kids as well)on this Australian tour, but the first time we got sick, I was able to push through. This time, what these parasite paparazzi don’t show you, is two doctor visits in Byron on two consecutive days, antibiotics, steroids, Vick’s, nose spray, throat spray, more steroids, NyQuil, a screaming baby in the middle of the night, every night, while mama gives him warm baths and tells her daughter everything is fine. You can think whatever you want, it’s your right, but I have never taken advantage of any one in my entire life. I have never fucked off while disrespecting hard working people who spend money to come see me play. I have never phoned in a single tour, I have an impeccable record for not cancelling. I mother with everything I have whilst handling all the rest. The snark in this is unbelievable and makes me long for a nicer world. I’m doing the absolute best I can, and you can believe it or not. What they don’t show you in this picture is me drinking water and lying down while my friends try to entertain my 7 year old who is asking me why these creepy men are surrounding us and pacing back and forth and taking pictures of her every move. I will see everyone tomorrow whether I’m better or not, and the postponed show will be rescheduled. As I said, I’m sorry to the real fans who this situation has affected. Onwards and upwards.

The mother-of-two was brought to hospital over the weekend due to dehydration and was later discharged.

Pink was then admitted to hospital once again yesterday, and was diagnosed with a gastric virus.

The singer will stay in hospital until she finishes her treatment.

Touring company, Live Nation, tweeted the updates about Pink and said that there’ll be further announcements when they receive more information.

The singer was set to be completing an Australian tour during the month of August.
