Braxton hospitalized with blood clots
Singer Toni Braxton has been hospitalized after suffering blood clots stemming from lupus.
The Un-Break My Heart hitmaker opened up about her struggle with lupus last year, and now the auto-immune condition, which attacks healthy body tissue, has left her in need of medical attention.
She took to Twitter.com on Friday to tells fans about her hospitalization.
In a post on her page, Braxton writes, "Hey guys, I'm in the hospital for health issues related to lupus & blood clots, I will be home soon...Thanks for all the love & support!"
It is the second time Braxton has been hospitalized due to the illness this year - she was also admitted to a clinic in January after her immune system started to shut down.
Braxton also suffers from heart condition microvascular angina.
