“With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday’s final #dwts performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.’s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs) As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one’s way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn’t the case. Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support️ p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER,” Braxton captioned the photo.
Sadly, she isn’t the first celeb this season to leave the program over an illness. Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak suffered a mini-stroke after a performance this season and doctors subsequently learned that she had a patent foramen ovale, which is a hole in the heart. Zolciak was unable to fly back to the show to perform and, despite her protests, she was disqualified from “DWTS.”
We’re sad that Braxton can’t compete for the title, especially since she was doing so well, and we hope she has a speedy recovery.
