The singer raised concerns among fans after he was seen stumbling around on stage.
Post Malone has spoken out after footage of him stumbling around on stage left fans worried about his health.
The 24-year-old singer raised concerns after videos of him displaying "weird" behaviour, rolling his eyes, tripping over himself and stumbling during his recent performances surfaced online.
Post, real name Austin Richard Post, denied abusing drugs during a show on his ongoing Runaway tour in Memphis on Friday night (6 Mar) and urged any fans concerned about his health not to worry.
"I'm not on drugs! I feel the best I've ever f**king felt in my life," he said. "And that's why I can bust my a** for these shows and f**king fall on the floor and do all that fun s**t. But for anyone that's concerned here, I appreciate the love and the support, but I feel f**king fantastic and I'm not doing drugs."
