According to E! News, Gomez released a statement regarding her decision to pull the plug.

"My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them," she said.

If you spent your hard-earned money on tickets, refunds are available. You can pick them up at the point of purchase. If you bought them online with a credit card, the charge will automatically be refunded.

"She wants to be the healthiest that she can be and this means taking a little break. But she is fine. She is OK."

Apparently, the singer's been working nonstop for the past six years. We think she's earned this downtime.
