Iggy Azalea has confirmed that her backup dancer, who fell onstage after suffering a seizure, is "feeling much better."

During Azalea's concert at Maracan√£ Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Thursday, December 27, one of her four backup dancers fainted and collapsed while the rapper was performing "Black Widow."

In a video clip shared on Twitter, Iggy asks for a medic after her dancer falls and she continues rapping until the music stops and the whole stadium goes silent and an ambulance appears to assist the dancer.

"Hey guys, just want to let everyone asking know my dancer is OKAY!" she posted on Instagram.

"The lights & heat caused her to have a seizure. She is backstage feeling much better. I thought she had just fallen/twisted her ankle. And it may sound harsh but; you keep singing until music stops & ask for a medic which is what I did. We are all really shaken up by what happened & just thankful she is okay," she continued.

"I know it's easy to make memes of someone 'passed out' but someone having a seizure isn't funny, it's really scary," she continued. "So I hope my fans do not repost some of the memes I'm seeing about my dancer."
