Rapper Post Malone was admitted to hospital after suffering “breathing difficulties” and has been forced to postpone a gig.

The Rockstar rapper, whose real name is Austin Richard Post had to cut short a gig he was playing in St Louis, Missouri, last week after he fell into a “hole” for crew and equipment at the edge of the stage and winded himself.

He was treated in hospital and told fans on social media: “Everything is fine.”

But he returned to hospital on Saturday with what he described as “difficulty breathing and stabbing pain… every time I move or breathe”.

As a result, the scheduled show last night in Boston was postponed.

He told fans: “Today I woke up to a cracking sounds on the right side of my body

“I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than it has before. I’m having a very difficult time breathing, and there’s like a stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move.”

He pledged to reschedule the show.

“I love y’all so much. I feel terrible, but I promise I’m going to make this up to you. I love you Boston, I’ll see you soon,” wrote the singer, 27, whose real name is Austin Richard Post.

The venue, TD Garden, said in a tweet the show was “postponed due to unforeseen circumstances”.

Malone is scheduled to perform in Cleveland on Tuesday.

This comes after a video footage circulating social media shows the dramatic moment the rapper fell through the stage while performing – but still managed to perform more songs for fans.

He was performing at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Missouri this month when the incident took place.

Footage showed the singer performing his track ‘Circles’ on a platform which stretched out from the stage when the floor appeared to give way. Fans could be heard screaming as the 27-year-old dropped to the stage floor, scrunching his face up in visible pain.

TMZ reports that the hole in the stage appeared when the star had lowered his guitar out of sight, but it hadn’t been covered up again afterwards.

An eyewitness told the publication one of the singer’s legs was shaking uncontrollably in the aftermath of the event.

Medics immediately rushed over to check the US star’s condition, and he was escorted backstage, where he was forced to take a break from the concert.

But just 15 minutes later, Malone returned to the stage. The singer thanked fans for their patience, and joked that there was a “big a**hole” in the stage, before performing tracks ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Cooped Up’, as well as a few other hits. He even lingered onstage to sign autographs.

The singer even took to social media to apologise for missing some songs, and confirmed he would return to the US city for another, longer performance.

In a social media update on Sunday, Malone said: “We just got back from the hospital and everything’s good. They gave me some pain meds and everything so we can just keep kicking ass on the tour. I just want to apologize to everyone in St. Louis and thank you guys so much for coming out to to the show and next time I’m around this way we’re going to do a two-hour show so we can make up for the couple of songs we missed.”

Fans have praised Malone for his bravery and wished him a speedy recovery.
