A second Taylor Swift fan has passed away after the doomed Rio de Janeiro concert.
The pop star’s Eras Tour in Brazil has suffered another tragedy after 25-year-old fan Gabriel Milhomem Santos was fatally stabbed after leaving the signer’s concert at Nilton Santos Olympic Stadium.
According to the reports, the young man was killed in the early Sunday hours. When he was found at the nearby Copacabana beach, he was wearing a Swifties friendship bracelet.
It is believed that he was killed by three men in a robbery after dozing off at the beach.
The tragic news comes just hours after a 23-year-old woman died from heat exhaustion that led to a cardiac arrest.
The woman has since been identified as Ana Clara Benevides, whereas it was revealed that the temperature at Swift’s concert reached a staggering 138.2°F amid the heatwave.
“I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but it is with her shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show. I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this,” Swift shared after learning about her fan’s fate.
Announcing that her Saturday night performance would be canceled, she continued: “The decision has been made to postpone tonight’s show due to the extreme temperatures in Rio. The safety and well-being of my fans, fellow performers, and crew has to and always will come first.
“I’m not going to be able to speak about this from the stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.
“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply, and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring the show to Brazil.”
