Fans and Celebs Rally Around Katharine McPhee After “Horrible Tragedy”

Katharine McPhee and husband David Foster have announced that there’s been “a horrible tragedy” in their family, prompting her to rush home from Asia.

McPhee has been forced to bow out of their final two shows in Jakarta, Indonesia following the emergency that requires “at least one of” of them to head home immediately.

“Dearest Jakarta fans, it’s with heavy heart I announce I have to miss our final two shows of our Asia run,” McPhee wrote in a statement on Instagram Friday morning. 

“David and I have had a horrible tragedy in our family and at least one of us need to get back home to our family.”

The singer, 39, has been performing in Asia alongside her 16-time Grammy Award-winning husband, who is 34 years her senior.

“Please know how sorry I am and how much I wish to return one day and perform for you all. Love Katharine,” her post concluded.

While it’s unclear what exactly happened, fans and celebs alike rushed to the comments section to send their well wishes to the couple.

“Sending my love and prayers for your family,” Nicole Scherzinger wrote.

Foster’s ex-wife Linda Thompson added, “Sending you and David love, & hoping that everything is OK.”

Soon after, McPhee turned commenting off on the post.

It appears that Foster will still take to the stage on Friday and Saturday, suggesting that McPhee will travel home alone.

Foster will be joined by Michael Bolton, Loren Allred, Peabo Bryson, and Raisa, in Jakarta as part of his “David Foster and Friends” tour.

Page Six has reached out to McPhee and Foster’s reps for comment.

McPhee and Foster, 73, who have been married since 2019, share a 1-year-old son, Rennie — but McPhee recently revealed that she wouldn’t mind expanding their brood.

The music producer also has five adult daughters from previous relationships: Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara, 41, Erin, 40, and Jordan, 36.

Foster has openly spoken about the fact that he does not regret welcoming a sixth child at a later stage in his life.

“I’ve loved every single day,” the Canadian musician said in October 2022.

“It’s the standard thing of like, ‘Oh, well, you were so young when you had your children, and you were working day and night, you never saw them.’ And there is some truth to that, sadly, for my [older] kids. I was just working a lot. Even though I’m working a lot now, I’ll cancel anything just to hang with him. It’s just different.”
