The pop star was scheduled to perform two concerts in Mexico and six shows in South America in late September and in November respectively.

It would have been the last leg of her tour, which kicked off in San Diego in February, followed by the United States, Canada and Europe.

Ticket refunds will be available at the original point of purchase and credit card purchases will be automatically refunded.

As previously reported, on Saturday, August 4, the Barney & Friends star, who was hospitalized in L.A. after suffering an apparent drug overdose, was released from the hospital; she is now in rehab where she will remain for an extended period of time.

Last March, Demi, who first entered rehab in 2010, celebrated her six-year sobriety. However, just three months later, the pop star revealed through her single "Sober" that she had relapsed.
