It seems August Alsina has not been cleared to travel overseas after his onstage collapse and resulting three-day coma back in September.

Doctors have advised the singer to avoid traveling to London, where he was set to perform Saturday (October 11) as part of Kevin Hart's HartBeat Weekend.

Alsina let his fans know about the cancelation on Twitter Friday, offering an apology for having to change plans.

A rep for the "No Love" singer also commented on the cancellation, saying the artist was sad about not being being able to perform in the U.K.

“Due to the well-publicized fall from a stage in New York last month which caused August to be hospitalized for more than a week, his medical team has advised him that it would be unwise to travel such distance so soon into his recovery,” the spokesperson said in a statement via Billboard.

He continued: “August has asked us to convey his disappointment and sadness that he will be unable to perform. We all wish him the very best of luck and a speedy recovery.”

Kevin Hart also expressed disappointment over the cancelation, but he added that his "thoughts and well wishes go out to" Alsina. In a statement, the "Ride Along" star also praised August for understanding that "his health must take priority over anything else.”

Hart echoed these sentiments on Twitter.

Hart isn't the only celebrity to wish Alsina well following the singer's collapse and coma. Nicki Minaj visited the singer while he was hospitalized. In an Instagram post, the rapper said she was praying for his recovery and that she was there for him.

August Alsina will likely need all the rest he can get. He is reportedly gearing up for an upcoming North American tour with Usher that is scheduled to start November 1.
