Toni Braxton was recently hospitalized following an unfortunate lupus flare-up, but according to the Grammy Award winner’s rep and family, Braxton is doing well.
“Toni is resting at home and she is fine. She was in an L.A. hospital for a few days, being treated for her Lupus. She has been released and starts rehearsals for her upcoming tour this week,” the rep said in a statement. “She was not in serious condition, though Lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times.”
The singer’s sister, Tamar Braxton, also confirmed that Toni is home safe and doing fine. “I absolutely HATE when she is sick .. But to God be the Glory!! T, You are home SAFE and We can make you smile even when you’re faking like you feel well enough to laugh at the joke,” Tamar wrote on Instagram.
She added, “#LUPUSSUCKS shout out to all Lupus superwomen and men who knows what that’s like.”
Tamar also shared an emotional video of her sister being surrounded by family and friends.
Nick Cannon also took to social media to wish the star well. The America’s Got Talent host shared a snapshot of them together on Instagram, writing:
“Sending love and strength to My fellow #LupusWarrior @tonibraxton The Queen is back!! We can’t never let this diagnosed condition stop our mission!! We just had a long fellowship and she is at home now, preparing to hit the road for her fans. I get these type of setbacks all the time but it just makes us stronger against this invisible disease! But the queen is more than a conqueror! No sweat! By his stripes you are healed! Now go give the people what they want!! A fabulous show!”
In 2010, Braxton announced that she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease and has since been very open.
In 2015, the singer talked about battling the disease during a segment with HuffPo Live. “Some days I can’t balance it all. I just have to lay in bed,” she said. “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.”
Toni is supposed to hit the road for her The Hits Tour on October 8, and so far, the beauty hasn’t had to cancel any shows. “I’ve never done that. Even if I can’t perform, I still figure it out,” she told HuffPo. “Sometimes I look back [at] that evening [and] I go, ‘How did I get through that?'”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
