R&B artist, and most recently reality TV diva, Toni Braxton was hospitalized this week for issues relating to her Lupus condition.
Toni informed TMZ that although her flare-up required a hospital visit, she is doing well and thanks her family and friends for their support.
“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.”
Toni continued by attempting to ease her fans concerns by Tweeting the following from her Los Angeles hospital bed;
“Hey guys! I’m sure you’ve heard rumors about me being in the hospital, they are in fact, true. I’ve been here since Monday but I am fine!”
Followed by, “Just a lupus flare up, but I promise you all I am ok! Love you all! Thanks so much for all of your support! Xoxoxoxoxo :)”
Toni has frequently used her role on the Braxton Family Values as a platform to further educate others regarding her struggles with the disease. She noted that she had been struggling with the symptoms for years but doctors failed to properly diagnose it until 2010.
Another famous celeb who was diagnosed as borderline positive for lupus and also voiced her support for Toni Braxton is Lady Gaga.
That’s right, the original Fame Monster reached out to Toni with the following message;
“Toni, your strength is admirable. As a woman whose family has been affected by lupus, I understand your struggle and have you in my thoughts. –Gaga.”
Well said Gaga. We all have you in our thoughts Toni and sincerely wish you well.
