Toni Braxton has faced a number of medical issues over the past several years and most recently, the singer faced a health scare that put her in the hospital.
According to TMZ, Braxton was taken to an L.A. hospital this week after experiencing painful “flare-ups” from lupus. “I wanted to say thanks to all my fans for their support, as I have been experiencing some flare-ups with my lupus, which has me in the hospital for a few days,” said Braxton.
Like any celebrity, Braxton worried about false stories being spread about her hospitalization. So, she decided to send a message to her fans about her health scare to quell rumors.
“I wanted to clear the record before rumors started, and will totally be fine as I’m blessed to having an amazing family for support,” said Braxton.
The Grammy-winning singer spoke about her lupus diagnosis in 2010, and has since been very active in raising awareness about the disease. Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. The disease may affect the skin, joints, blood, heart, lungs and other organs.
Well, we’re glad that Braxton is doing well and we hope that she has a speedy recovery. Below, you can check out five other celebs who’ve been hospitalized in recent times. –nicholas robinson
