Taylor Swift is 'devastated' after she learned that her 16-year-old fan passed away ahead of her Eras concert in Brazil. The singer took to her social media handle and penned a heartbreaking note while expressing her grief. According to a report in People, the fan's name was Ally Anderson, and she was diagnosed with Stage 4 alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare soft tissue cancer.
Taylor wrote, "I can't believe I'm writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show. I can't even tell you how devastated I am by this. There's very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young."
