Legendary musician Madonna reportedly had to be helped up by her back-up dancers while performing a gig at Le Grand Rex in Paris. As she stood up, she ‘burst into tears’.

Madonna has had a rough year. Not only has she been hit with a lawsuit for continuously showing up late to her shows and had her music video slammed by school shooting survivors, now she has fallen during one of her recent performances that she gave in the midst of recovering from hip and knee surgery.

According to The Sun, a fan mentioned that “at the end of Vogue, she missed the chair and fell on the floor. A dancer had to help her on to the chair and then during the Polaroid part she broke in to tears and couldn’t stop.”

Recently, the 61-year-old singer had surgery on both her hip and knees, and had been using a cane to help her mobility. Due to the recovery period, Madonna had cancelled 14 due to “indescribable pain”. Although she made the exception for Paris, fans worry that she is hurting herself during this rehabilitation period.

Despite falling during the Paris leg of her Madame X tour, Madonna was able to continue the performance, although she was crying for some time. She has yet to comment on the fall itself, but did post footage of the show, citing that “Saturdays are always so much fun!”
