Celine’s post on Facebook has further added that the singer has been dealing with a condition in her middle ear which is known as Patulous Eustachian tube that causes hearing irregularities and makes it extremely difficult to sing.

The singer has been suffering from the problem since the past 12 to 18 months but was earlier successfully treated with several medications and ear drops, but in the past couple of months the medications have no longer been working to treat the condition due to which she will have to undergo a minimally invasive surgery to rectify the problem.

I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show. I know how disappointing this is, and I’m so sorry.” The singer added that her performances are expected to resume on May 22, 2018.

The singer continued that her doctor has advised her that she absolutely cannot perform and needs to take rest. Celine added that it hurt her beyond words to disappoint her fans, who support her the most.
