This year’s 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball just got a little less jolly.
Rapper French Montana has dropped off the bill for Sunday’s pop festival at Amalie Arena in Tampa due to illness.
“French Montana’s team notified us that he will need to take some time off due to exhaustion, dehydration, an irregular heart rate and severe stomach pains, and will no longer be able to perform on the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour,” the station posted on Instagram. “We are all wishing him well!"
A 93.3-FLZ Instagram reply referred followers to TMZ for more. TMZ reported that the Unforgettable rapper has been hospitalized for days following a whirlwind tour of four countries in six days.
The station may not have time to add another performer to the Jingle Ball before Sunday, but it could reshuffle its lineup just a bit. Scheduled to perform are Sam Smith, Lizzo, Normani, Why Don’t We, AJ Mitchell and Max. Before that is a free outdoor pre-show featuring Mitchell Max and Spencer Sutherland.
