Lana Del ReySinger Lana Del Rey scrapped a show in London on Tuesday night after falling ill.

The British singer was set to take the stage at the Koko as part of MTV's Brand New For 2012 show but she pulled out at the last minute, leaving The Maccabees and Charlie XCX to headline the gig.

A statement released by MTV bosses reads, "Due to illness Lana Del Rey is regrettably not able to perform at tonight's MTV UK Brand New For 2012 show at London's Koko and sends her apologies to all her fans."

The cancellation comes just six days before the U.K. release of her debut album, "Born To Die," on January 30.

It has been an eventful month for the singing sensation - she landed a modelling contract with a top New York agency, swore during a live British radio interview on Monday and she was critically savaged for her lacklustre, nervous performance on hit show Saturday Night Live.
