Toni Braxton took to social media to thank her fans for all their concerns and support a day after she was hospitalized due to complications with her Lupus, which forced the postponement of her Cleveland show on Saturday, Oct. 15.
“Hey guys, thanks for all of your well wishes and understanding. I am [now] out of the hospital, and en route to CHICAGO! I cannot wait to see you all TONIGHT at the Arie Crown Theater!! #TheHitsTour ❤ ,” the 49-year-old singer-songwriter wrote on Instagram on Sunday, alongside a photo of her leaving the hospital.
According to an announcement posted on Braxton’s different social media accounts, the “Un-Break My Heart” hitmaker was admitted to a Cleveland hopsital on Saturday afternoon. The announcement stated that Braxton’s recent hospitalization should not affect the rest of her tour, adding that tickets for the postponed Cleveland show will be honored at the re-scheduled date that will be announced soon.
Braxton’s rep told Entertainment Tonight that the mom of two was released from the hospital Sunday morning, which gave her enough time to travel to Chicago for tonight’s show.
This isn’t the first time Braxton postponed shows on her ongoing tour. Just last week, the songstress postponed her Oakland and Los Angeles for similar issues stemming from her autoimmune disease. Though initial reports said that the Maryland native had been hospitalized in serious condition, her rep dismissed these claims. “She was not in serious condition, though lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times,” the rep said at the time.
Braxton’s Oakland and Chicago shows were postponed to Jan. 28 and Jan. 29, 2017, respectively.
The seven-time Grammy-winning recording artist revealed that she was diagnosed with Lupus in an interview with Entertainment Tonight back in April 2011. In December 2012, she tweeted that she was hospitalized for “health issues related to Lupus & Blood clots.”
