On Saturday, Grammy-award winning singer Toni Braxton took to Twitter to announce that she was hospitalized for complications of lupus. The 49-year-old was forced to cancel the Cleveland stop of her “The Hits Tour” that night.
“Lupus needs to be constantly monitored and this minor setback should not affect the rest of her tour,” the statement said. “Tickets for tonight’s show will be honored at the rescheduled date that will be announced shortly.”
