Toni Braxton Is 'Fine' and 'Resting at Home' After Being Hospitalized for Lupus Complications
The singer was treated in a Los Angeles hospital for four days before being released
Toni Braxton is recovering after a heath scare landed her in a Los Angeles hospital for four days.
The stay was a result of complications stemming from her battle with lupus. Thankfully the problems were not life-threatening, and the 48-year-old singer has since been discharged from the facility.
“Toni is resting at home and she is fine,” her rep told PEOPLE. “She was in an L.A. hospital for a few days being treated for her lupus. She has been released and starts rehearsals for her upcoming tour this week. She was not in serious condition, though lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times.”
Braxton first went public about her struggle with the auto-immune disease in 2010 during an interview with CBS News. Two years earlier she canceled a string of dates after being hospitalized for chest pains.
