Toni Braxton has suffered a setback in her medical battle with lupus, and has reportedly been hospitalized due to complications.
According to TMZ, Braxton is now in Los Angeles after seeing a doctor in Atlanta, at which point she flew to L.A. to be treated.
“A rep confirms Toni was getting treated for lupus,” reports TMZ, “but says she’s doing better now, and she’s hoping to start rehearsals soon.”
Braxton has been dating rapper Birdman since early this year, and TMZ reports that when he heard the news while on tour in Texas he hopped on a plane and rushed to her side.
Braxton went public with her lupus diagnosis back in 2010. Following news of Braxton’s hospitalization, her sister, Towanda Braxton, offered an update via Twitter, relating that “Toni is home safe & sound,” adding that “she is currently home resting and getting ready for #TheHitsTour.”
