Toni Braxton Going on Tour After Lupus Hospitalization: 'Everyone's Life is Complicated'
By Sophie Schillaci
Toni Braxton is ready to hit the road.
The 48-year-old "Un-Break My Heart" singer will move forward as planned with her U.S. tour next week after being hospitalized for complications from lupus.
"I am so excited about going back on the road and seeing all of my wonderful fans and friends," Braxton said in a statement on Wednesday. "Everyone's life is complicated and this is just a condition that I live with."
As ET previously reported, Braxton recently spent several days in a Los Angeles hospital, though her rep denied reports that the singer was in serious condition.
According to a press release issued Wednesday, Braxton is "fine" and "continues resting at home."
"Lupus is a serious disease which Toni has lived with since 2010 and must be monitored at all times," it continues.
Braxton was forced to postpone just two dates on her tour, rescheduling performances in Oakland and Los Angeles, originally set for this weekend, for January 2017. She will begin performances on Oct. 12 in Detroit, Michigan.
Braxton first revealed her ongoing battle with the autoimmune disease to ET back in April 2011. "I have good days and bad days," she explained. "If you ever see me a little chunky it's because of all the steroids, all the shots and things and my medications. But today's a great day. I'm a little thinner today… so I feel really good."
