Ariana Grande is safe after an explosion at her Manchester show killed at least 19 people and injured at least 50 others.

The “Side to Side” singer was performing Monday night when loud bangs were heard around 10:30 p.m. local time.

Grande, 23, was “okay” after the blast, her rep told Billboard, but the singer is “in hysterics,” sources told TMZ.

"Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don't have words," Grande tweeted around 11 p.m.



The singer has put the rest of her tour on hold, according to the gossip site.

She was scheduled to perform Thursday and Friday at the O2 Arena in London before moving on to Belgium, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France.

"Tonight, our hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack," manager Scooter Braun said in a statement.

"We mourn the lives of chidlren and loved ones taken by this cowardly act. We are thankful for the selfless service tonight of Manchester's first responders who rushed towards danger to help save lives. We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers."

"I wish I could say that I am ok, but I am not. Safe? Yes, but heartbroken that loved ones who came to have the night of their lives ended up losing them. They weren't safe. I will never understand this hate! This was supposed to be their safe place," she wrote.

"I'm so hurt and frustrated I don't know how to handle this and I can't smile and I feel useless I'm sorry."
