Grammy award winning singer Toni Braxton was rushed to an L.A. hospital earlier this week after experiencing "flare ups" as a result of her Lupus condition.
She told TMZ that she’s doing fine and thanked her fans for the outpouring of support they've given.
"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.
I wanted to clear the record before rumors started, and will totally be fine as I'm blessed to having an amazing family for support."
Braxton tweeted to her fans and further reassured them she was fine:
In 2011, Braxton revealed that she’s been struggling with the disease for years and has become an advocate for raising awareness about the condition. Lupus is a disease in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue.
We’re definitely happy that Braxton is feeling better and wish her all the best.
