It is reported that Toni Braxton was hospitalized for four days recently in Atlanta battling Lupus. Braxton went public about her illness in 2010 when she accepted the Women In Achievement Award from Lupus LA. Lupus is a autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues and organs.
A representative has informed that “she was not in serious condition, though Lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times.” She is now home and surrounded by family, friends, and BF Rapper Birdman who traveled from Texas when he heard the news.
Braxton says, “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.”And although “Some days [she] can’t balance it all,” the Grammy Award winning singer manages to still perform as much as she can.
