It looks like things have taken an unfortunate turn for Drake, as the Toronto hip hop star has been forced to cancel a concert in Florida tomorrow night due to a family tragedy.

"We regret to announce that Drake will not be able to take the stage at Universal Orlando Resort due to a death in the family," a rep for Drake said in a statement.

TMZ is reporting that Drake's uncle passed away.

"He hopes that his fans understand the situation he finds himself in and know that he fully intends to return to the area in the future. He thanks Universal Orlando Resort and his fans for their continued support,” the statement concluded.
