Tamar Braxton is Diagnosed with Serious Medical Condition and Has to Drop Out of Tour –
MADAMENOIRE – Earlier this week, Tamar Braxton was hospitalized and treated for what doctors believed was a case of pneumonia. To the surprise of many, the R&B singer pushed through her illness and returned to ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” competition. Despite, receiving a nearly perfect score, Braxton was later forced to withdraw.

As it turns out, Braxton was misdiagnosed. After further testing, doctors discovered that a pulmonary embolism is the cause of the 38-year-old’s ailments. Tuesday, she regretfully took to Instagram and announced her withdrawal from the race as well as Kem’s Promise to Love Tour.
With a heavy heart, I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday’s final dwts performance, I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia, but something way more serious, and that is having several P.E.’s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs). As you all know, I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one’s way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning, and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn’t the case. Take care of yourselves. I love you and thank you ALL for your support.
