Singer Toni Braxton is in the hospital in Los Angeles because of lupus.
Friday, she Tweeted herself that she’d been hospitalized because of “minor health issues” related to lupus. A spokeswoman confirmed this but offered no details.
“But no worries!” Braxton wrote to fans. “I will be out any day now.”
The 45-year-old Grammy winner revealed two years ago she has lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that runs in her family and killed Braxton’s uncle.
She also is said to suffer from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.
Toni said in a recent interview that the lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would likely be diminished and the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.
Braxton filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and has serious financial problems.
We wish her a full and speedy recovery and a return to good health.
