Pop starlet Maggie Lindemann was reportedly arrested midway through her Malaysian show on June 21 at The Bee in Publika, Kuala Lumpur.
The 20-year-old singer-songwriter, who is best known for her debut single Pretty Girl, posted a statement on Twitter on Thursday (July 4) about the arrest.
She starts off by apologising to the Malaysian fans who went to her show, adding that that “for reasons I can’t go into right now”, she was detained and arrested midway through her set and then “spent the next 5 days confined in a living hell”.
After Malaysia, the Texas-born singer was due to make stops in Vietnam and Singapore, but has since had to cancel those dates.
The Straits Times reported on June 24 that Lindemann cancelled what would have been her debut show in Singapore, citing “unforeseen circumstances”. No further reasons were given for the cancellation at the time.
