Toni Braxton's Lupus Leads To Hospitalization

Toni Braxton was hospitalized due to Lupus complications this past Friday in Los Angeles. The R&B singer took to her Twitter account to alert her fans, saying, "Hey guys, I'm in the hospital for health issues related to Lupus & Blood clots."

Braxton assured her fans, however, that the issue is not critical, "I will be home soon . . . Thanks for all the love & support."

Two years ago Braxton revealed that she been diagnosed with the autoimmune disease. Previous hospitalizations stemming from the condition include a flare-up last January.

The disease runs in the 45-year-old's family: her uncle died from complications relating to the disease, and her brother has also been diagnosed with it.

Besides the effects on her health, Toni said in a recent 20/20 interview that the disease helped precipitate her bankruptcy.
