Toni Braxton is hospitalized due to complications from lupus.
TMZ reported that the R&B legend has been hospitalized for the past four days and her boyfriend Birdman rushed to be by her side. She is currently receiving treatment at a hospital in Los Angeles after being checked out by her personal doctor in Atlanta.
Toni Braxton has been battling lupus for years and even included her struggle in her Lifetime biopic. Last year she also spoke about her struggles with the disease in an interview with The Huffington Post.
“Some days I can’t balance it all,” she said. “I just have to lay in bed. Pretty much when you have lupus you feel like you have the flu every day. But some days you get through it. But for me, if I’m not feeling well, I tend to tell my kids, ‘Oh mommy’s just going to relax in bed today. I kind of take it easy.’”
Braxton is also getting ready to hit the road for her “Hits Tour.”
