BLACKPINK’s Jennie has Blinks concerned for her well-being.
The K-pop superstar made a sudden exit offstage during a Melbourne concert over the weekend, prompting love and support across social media.
Videos capturing her mid-set departure depict audience members shouting, “We love you Jennie” as she made her way backstage. YG Entertainment issued an online statement about the matter and confirmed that Jennie cut her performance short to prioritize her health.

“We regret to inform you that during the BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR [BORN PINK] IN MELBOURNE performance on June 11 (today), member JENNIE was unable to complete the stage due to her deteriorating condition,” the statement read. “JENNIE expressed her strong determination to carry on with the performance until the end. However, following medical advice on site, we immediately took measures to ensure she receives ample rest and stability.”
The 27-year-old reportedly also missed sound check earlier in the day and YG Entertainment, who founded the girl group, went on to acknowledge that Jennie is disappointed over leaving the show early but “assures that she will recover as soon as possible.”
BLACKPINK’s three other members Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé continued with the show and let the crowd know that their bandmate was recuperating.
