The 25-year-old singer had to cancel her show due to a recurring illness, reported Us magazine.

The `Umbrella` hitmakers concert in Texas is the latest in a series of cancelled tour stops, following the deferent of her Boston and Baltimore shows in March.

Although it was not specified as to what illness she has been stricken with, a source revealed it is a returning case of colds and laryngitis.

"It sucks. She hates letting her fans down and it drives her crazy when she`s not on stage. She feels bad, but what can she do? She just laying it down, trying to get better," a source said.

The concert`s promoter have advised ticket holders to keep their stubs as the show will be rescheduled.
