LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Toni Braxton has been hospitalized in Los Angeles.

The R&B performer said in a Tweet on Friday that she’s been hospitalized because of “minor health issues” related to lupus. A spokeswoman confirmed the hospitalization but had no other details.

“But no worries!,” Miss Braxton wrote to fans. “I will be out any day now.”

The 45-year-old singer of “Un-break My Heart” revealed two years ago she has lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that killed Miss Braxton‘s uncle. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.


Miss Braxton said in a recent “20/20” interview that doctors told her the lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would likely be diminished and the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.
