Madonna, 61, CANCELS third Madame X show in Paris due to knee injury worsened ...

Madonna has canceled yet another Madame X tour date in Paris after her persistent knee injury was worsened by a fall taken on stage Thursday.

The 61-year-old took to her Instagram page on Sunday morning to address the third cancellation of her 12-night Le Grand Rex residency.

Madonna, who has canceled 14 Madame X tour dates so far, insisted that she 'needs to stay in bed and rest for a few days so she can finish the tour with a smile on her face and in one piece.'

She continued:  'If only knees didn’t twist and cartilage didn’t tear and nothing hurt and tears never fell out of our eyes.........But alas they do and Thank God for this important reminder that we are human.'

The singer explained to fans that she 'fell 2 nights ago on stage when a chair was literally pulled out from underneath [her] by mistake' causing her to land 'on the floor on [her] tail bone.'

After the fall, Madonna braved the stage, once again, for a Saturday evening show, which she admitted was more of a struggle than she anticipated. 

'I made it thru the show last night but just barely because I hate disappointing,' she wrote.

The evening of Saturday's show, the singer was spotted wielding a cane and struggling to move. 

'However today even I can see that this broken doll held together with tape and glue, needs to stay in bed and rest for a few days so she can finish the tour with a smile on her face and in one piece. '

She concluded her Instagram caption by thanking her Parisian fans, who already endured prior cancellations from the artist on February 20 and 25.

'Thank You for your understanding Paris! #madamextheatre.'
