Drake Bell is suffering more than just legal consequences for his alleged crimes.

One day after he pled guilty to a felony charge of attempted child endangerment and a misdemeanor charge of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, an upcoming show of his was axed.

"For reasons beyond our control, the event was canceled," a representative from the Auditorio Pabellón event venue in Monterrey, Mexico, told Radar about the singer's previously scheduled July 29 appearance.

Though they did not respond to our request for comment on Bell's arrest and indictment, the rep did say, "If you would like a refund, send me a photo of your tickets."

As we previously reported, the 34-year-old former Nickelodeon star (whose real name is Jared Drake Bell, though he now goes by Drake Campana) pled guilty to all charges – which accuse him of having violated "a duty of care, protection or support and the violation resulted in serious physical harm to" a minor – on Wednesday via Zoom.

Defense attorney Ian Friedman said the reasoning "why Mr. Bell chose to enter today's plea" was revealed during the hearing, but he refused to comment any further.

Exactly three weeks prior, Drake was arrested by the Cleveland Division of Police and booked in Cuyahoga County Jail. He was ordered to submit a sample of his DNA, which is standard practice in the state of Ohio.

The actor/musician initially pled not guilty and was released after posting a $2,500 personal bond.

He also agreed to have no contact with his alleged victim, who Radar exclusively learned was only 15 years old when the Drake & Josh alum "recklessly" attempted to "create a substantial risk to" her health and safety at one of his concerts in December of 2017.

A rep for the Cuyahoga County District Attorney's Office, Tyler Sinclair, told us that Bell had sent the girl "inappropriate social media messages" in the months leading up to the show where the alleged incident took place.

The disgraced star has appeared nothing but casual and unbothered throughout his public legal woes.

Days after his release from jail, Drake announced on Twitter that he was on the hunt for a tattoo artist in Mexico City.

Then minutes after his guilty plea on Wednesday, he went live on Instagram – still wearing the salmon-colored shirt he had sported for his virtual court appearance – to serenade his 4.3 million followers with songs like You've Got A Friend In Me.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 12 in Cleveland.
