LOS ANGELES: Singer Toni Braxton has been admitted to hospital in Los Angeles.
The R&B performer said on twitter on Friday that she had been admitted because of "minor health issues" related to Lupus. A spokeswoman confirmed the news but had no other details.
"But no worries!" Braxton wrote to her fans. "I will be out any day now."
The 45-year-old singer of "Un-break My Heart" revealed two years ago that she had Lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that killed her uncle. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.
Braxton said in a recent "20/20" interview on US television that doctors told her the Lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would likely be diminished, and that the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.
