Tamar Braxton has been forced her to withdraw from Dancing with the Stars after doctors discovered blood clots on both sides of her lungs. It was thought she had pneumonia.
Braxton was rushed to the hospital for what was thought to be pneumonia, but it ended being something way more serious.
The Braxton Family Values star posted a picture with her dancing partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy at her hospital bedside: “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 p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER”
