It appears Taylor Swift won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving stateside following the tragic death of one of her fans and the subsequent changes to her Brazilian tour dates.
While Swift was expected to fly home for the holidays and boyfriend Travis Kelce’s football game, she was forced to postpone her concert in Rio de Janeiro from Saturday to Monday after the heartbreaking loss.
Given Swift’s upcoming shows in São Paulo start Friday, the singer seemingly decided to stay in Brazil for the entire week rather than fly home for just a few days.
The 33-year-old’s private jet landed in São Paulo on Tuesday afternoon after departing the seaside city earlier that morning.
The choice came one day after an insider told Page Six that Swift would be making a last-minute decision about whether she was up for the long travel days.
“The Brazil concerts … She is devastated about a fan dying,” they said.
“The weather is extreme. It’s a mess she didn’t expect. It’s been a traumatic experience. It’s been a lot. She is going to decide today.”
The “Cruel Summer” singer was expected to travel home for the holiday.
Our source noted that traveling “could end up being too much” for Swift, who has been overcome with grief following 23-year-old Ana Clara Benevides’ death.
While Swift’s father, Scott, was in Brazil with her, it’s unclear if her mother, Andrea, will be flying down to join them for the holiday.
Swift, who had to postpone her Saturday night show to Monday, was left “devastated” by the loss.
Benevides died on Friday night after going into cardiac arrest due to the extreme heat before the concert. She was rushed to the hospital but ultimately died after “almost an hour of emergency care.”
The heat index had reached a record-breaking 139 degrees Fahrenheit.
Later that night, Swift — who personally handed out water to fans during the show — took to her Instagram Story to address the tragedy.
“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,” Swift wrote.
“I’m not going to be able to speak about this from stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it,” she said.
“I want to say now I feel this loss deeply and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring this tour to Brazil.”
Although Swift did not directly address Benevides’ death on stage, she seemingly paid tribute to the aspiring psychologist with a teary-eyed performance of “Bigger Than The Whole Sky.”
“She is so grateful she’s had Travis,” an insider told US Weekly.
Swift has reportedly been leaning on Kelce and the rest of her family while trying to cope with the heartbreaking situation.
“She is so grateful she’s had Travis,” a source told Us Weekly Tuesday.
