Miley Cyrus has criticised the "ignorant stories" surrounding her recent hospitalisation and subsequent tour cancellations, saying: "shut the fuck up & let me heal."

The singer has so far cancelled four shows, after she suffered an extreme allergic reaction to the antibiotic Cephalexin, which had been prescribed for a sinus infection, and was hospitalised. However, despite an official statement being released confirming this, there has still been considerable speculation over the reason behind her hospitalisation.

Responding to rumours of drugs and excessive partying causing her illness, Cyrus took to Twitter to say: "So many ignorant stories out there, no one is reading the official statement and these dumbasses are scaring my fans."

She then added: "Shut the fuck up & let me heal. stop scaring my family, friends, & fans." and included a picture of the official press release. 

The singer has cancelled gigs scheduled for tonight and tomorrow, and it's currently unclear as to whether she'll be well enough to perform in the UK in early May as planned.
