According to pagesix.com, the songstress burst into tears after tumbling during Madame X show.
The fall was so bad the 61-year-old had to be helped to regain balance by one of her worried dancers.
The crowd watched in horror as the pop star cried in pain and used a cane to walk out of the stage.
Before the accident, Madonna sustained hip and knee injuries and the fall doubled up her pain.
Her close confidant Debi Mazar assured the Like A Virgin singer’s fans she is recuperating and will soon be up and about.
“She is strong and she has her injuries but is really trying to take care of her body. I talk to her regularly and support her,” the musician’s pal noted.
In November 2019, Madonna had to cancel a concert after experiencing unbearable pain in her knee.
She even apologized to her fans via Instagram for letting them down and cancelling last minute.
“The pain I am in right now is overwhelming and I must rest and follow doctor's orders so I can come back stronger and better and continue the Madame X journey with all of you,” she said.
When performing in Las Vegas later that month, the queen of pop was booed and criticized for showing up to her performance two hours late.
Her fans demanded a refund while a disgruntled man even filed a lawsuit.
