Los Angeles: Pop star Shakira has scrapped a series of appearances including Latin Grammys due to “personal matters”.

The 32-year-old Colombian star announced the news via Twitter just hours after sharing behind-the-scenes footage of herself and Maluma responding to their new single “Chantaje” online.

The singer posted the sad news in both English and Spanish, tweeting, “Due to personal matters, I won’t be able to travel to Las Vegas & LA to attend the Latin Grammys or the American Music Awards this year.

“I will be accompanying @carlosvives in spirit @LatinGRAMMYs, celebrating this incredible year that we’ve shared together with #LaBicicleta.”

Vives and Shakira will compete for the coveted Record of the Year honour at the 2016 Latin Grammy Awards.
No other details about why Shakira will be a no-show at the awards ceremonies has been revealed.
