Cape Town - No more tomatoes for Ari.

Popstar Ariana Grande has been left no choice but to delay two concert performances by six months due to a tomato allergy.

The 7 Rings singer took to her Instagram on 28 May to inform fans of her postponed shows, according to Page Six.

However, at the time she didn’t know of the allergy.

"I woke up incredibly sick today, ran to my doctor here and have been told to postpone these shows tonight and tomorrow,” she wrote. “I’m so beyond devastated. I will make this up to you, I promise. Please forgive me. I love you and I will be back and better than ever as soon as possible. Love you."

Hours later she updated fans, revealing just how agonising her allergic reaction was, E! Online reports.

"Update: we discovered that I had an unfortunate allergic reaction to tomatoes and my throat pretty much closed,” the 25-year-old added. “Still feels like I’m swallowing a cactus but slowly making progress!"

The singer’s shows, which were meant to take place on 28 and 29 May, have been moved to November.

Although devastated, Ari doesn’t seem to have lost her sense of humour.

"P.s. there is NOTHING MORE UNFAIR THAN AN ITALIAN WOMAN DEVELOPING AN ALLERGY TO TOMATOES IN HER MID TWENTIES," she quipped.
