“Just wanted to check in with a quick update and apologize to my fans in Tampa, Detroit, and Seattle,” King shared in a post on her Twitter account. “I share your disappointment that I had to cancel my radio shows this week. No one ever wants to pull out of shows, especially me. I live for performing.”

She revealed the accident happened while preparing a bottle to feed her son, Lucky Levi, late at night. “I slipped down the stairs making a bottle in the middle of the night, knocked my ass out, resulting in a concussion,” she shared. “I tried to push and played 3 shows, but the travel, lights, all of it only exacerbated things.”
