Cardi B has confirmed she will no longer be supporting Bruno Mars on his 24K Magic World Tour later this year.

The musical duo announced a number of joint performances on the trek’s final North American leg back in February, which would have run between September and November.

But the Bodak Yellow hitmaker, who welcomed daughter Kulture earlier this month with husband Offset, has since revealed she “underestimated” motherhood and won’t be ready in time to perform on the scheduled dates.

Taking to Twitter to announce the news, the 25-year-old rapper apologized to fans and thanked her Finesse collaborator for all his support.

“I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically,” she explained in a Notes screenshot posted to her Twitter page, alongside the caption: “Sorry guys ,Thank you @BrunoMars for being so supportive and understanding .Your the best (sic).”

She continued: “I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing. Not only am I just not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road.”

In response, the Grenade singer shared some kind words of support as he uploaded “A Message for Cardi” on his own Twitter account.

The 32-year-old singer-songwriter, who is currently taking the tour to the Park Theater in Las Vegas, reassured the I Like It rapper that she is making the right decision, but did not confirm who will be replacing her in the upcoming shows.

“Most important thing is you and your family’s health. I know the fans will understand,” he assured. “You are absolutely doing the right thing. I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor. Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on The 24k Magic Tour.”
