Rapper Iggy Azalea has formally cancelled her North American tour, according to an email sent to Ticketmaster customers.

“The Iggy Azalea Great Escape Tour scheduled for this fall has been cancelled and refunds are available at point of purchase,” the mass note from the ticketing hub read, according to media reports. “There will be a new tour planned around Iggy’s new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

Reps for Azalea have not yet returned TheWrap’s request for comment. TheWrap was first to report major turmoil behind the scenes of the tour, which was set to roll out earlier this year, then was half-heartedly pushed to the fall.

In March, the singer became increasingly unresponsive to her management and refused to engage in promotion, several individuals with knowledge told TheWrap. One insider described her as “disengaged from her core team,” adding she would not commit to press opportunities crucial in selling the show.

At the time, a post on the Grammy nominee’s Instagram page said, “until further notice Iggy’s Instagram will be run by management. Iggy is taking a break from social media.”

“The Great Escape Tour” had dates set in 24 cities from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to Los Angeles’ Staples Center, venues that accommodated upwards of 18,000 ticket holders. AEG Live was set to partner in production.
