CNN has contacted the artist’s representatives for comment.

He is currently scheduled to perform on August 7 in Oakland, California, the first of a number of additional dates on his “Back to Reggaeton” tour in the US.

Don Omar has been one of the biggest names in reggaeton since rising to fame in the early 2000s.

He has released eight studio albums and won two Latin Grammy awards out of 13 nominations, as well as appearing in various movies in the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

Don Omar maintained a long-term feud with fellow reggaeton star Daddy Yankee until the pair announced that they had ended their rivalry in December last year.
