Braxton told TMZ:
I wanted to say thanks to all my fans for their support, as I have been experiencing some flare-ups with my Lupus, which has me in the hospital for a few days. I wanted to clear the record before rumors started, and will totally be fine as I’m blessed to having an amazing family for support.
The Mayo Clinic defines lupus as a chronic inflammatory disease that attacks healthy tissue. Braxton publicly announced that she had the disease two years ago as she received a Women In Achievement Award from Lupus LA.
