Dancing with the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd apologized to fans after she was forced to leave a performance early due to a scary illness.

The 31-year-old reality TV star took to Instagram to explain why she would not be able to be a part of her national tour, MAKS.VAL.PETA Confidential, with husband Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his brother, Val.

As reported by ET, Peta wrote in a statement, "I need to apologize to the people who attended our Grand Prairie, Texas show last night. Never missed a show due to illness in my entire professional dancing career. 

"I woke up feeling a little nauseous but I was able to go about my day with Shai," Murgatroyd continued, referring to her 1-year -old son.

"In the afternoon, the vomiting (and you know what) started. I thought it was food poisoning. I had fever and chills and just tried to sleep it off before the show."

At the time of the show, Murgatroyd shared that she "could hardly walk and I couldn't feel my arms or legs."

"I had no idea how I was going to walk out that door. The opening music starts and I walked out onto stage. I tried my best to dance, but my legs were giving out. Apart from it being very embarrassing, it was very scary. I am so sorry for not being able to give you the show you all deserved," she continued. 

She also went on to thank her husband, her brother-in-law and co-star, as well as the entire cast and crew for "keeping the show going and taking care of me."

"I am feeling better today and look forward to seeing all of our fans. Thank you for your understanding and support. I love you and I am so sorry again!" she concluded. 

Her post came several hours before she was expected to take the stage for Sunday's tour stop at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri.
