Ariana Grande cancels trip over Ebola fear


Ariana Grande reportedly cancelled her trip to Spain as she's scared of Ebola. The US star was due to travel to the European country to promote her music, but earlier this month it was announced that the visit had been postponed until November.

'Ariana’s promo trip had to be cancelled — her team weren’t prepared to take any chances during the incubation period'

Now it's emerged her apparent fear of contracting the disease, which saw a Spanish nurse infected recently, is behind the move.

“Ariana’s promo trip had to be cancelled — her team weren’t prepared to take any chances during the incubation period," a source divulged to British newspaper The Sun.

“Of course, some people might think it’s an over-reaction but everyone agreed it was the right decision.

“It’s nothing against her Spanish plans and she was conscious to make sure the visit was put back in the diary in the future.”

Ebola has affected thousands in West Africa, but not many people in Europe have contracted the virus yet.

It seems the 21-year-old's cautious decision could cause some havoc with her schedule.

“They ended up having to juggle all her plans at the last minute and reschedule the trip," the insider continued.

“Ariana headed to Paris instead and now won’t get round to visiting Spain until November at the earliest, if at all this year.”

And Ebola isn't the only thing on Ariana's mind. The Problem singer recently spoke out about why she turned to Kabbalah, citing her older brother Frankie's sexuality as the reason.

"When my brother was told that God didn't love him I was like, 'OK, that's not cool.' They were building a Kabbalah centre in Florida so we both checked it out and really had a connection with it," she told Sunday Telegraph magazine.
