Miley Cyrus will "remain hospitalised" after suffering from a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics this week.

'Wrecking Ball' singer Miley has been forced to cancel two tour dates after she was taken to hospital on Tuesday (15 April). The 21-year-old suffered the allergic reaction after taking antibiotics for a sinus infection.

Miley's rep told E! News last night (16 April): "Miley was suffering from a sinus infection during her tour in N.C. a week ago. She was prescribed the antibiotic cephalexin which she has now suffered an extreme allergic reaction to."

"This type of extreme reaction can last from 5 to 27 days in these types of cases. She will remain hospitalised and is under a Doctor's care until we see some improvement in her condition and is asking for your compassion and privacy at this time."

The rep added that Miley was "devastated" to miss her shows, which are part of her 'Bangerz Tour'.

Hannah Montana star Miley took to Twitter yesterday to tell fans that she would have to cancel her concert in St. Louis, a day after cancelling her concert in Kansas.

She told fans at the time: "If anyone thinks I'd rather be laying in a hospital bed than doing what I love on stage they're f***ing LAME. I'm miserable."
