The “Anti-Hero” singer was rumored to be in attendance for the Chiefs’ game against the Eagles on Monday night, but she will miss it due to a rescheduled concert in Brazil. The subject of the Miss Americana documentary canceled one of her appearances in Rio after one of her fans died from the unbearable heat.
“I won’t be able to talk about this on stage because I’m overcome with grief even as I try to talk about it,” Swift wrote in a statement posted on social media.
“I want to say that I feel this loss deeply at this time and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. That’s the last thing I ever thought about when we decided to do the Brazil tour,” she added.
