Tamar Braxton Quits Dancing With the Stars for Major Health Issues – Pulmonary Embolism
Tamar Braxton has had to remove herself from the Dancing With the Stars competition citing major health issues.
Braxton had performed on the most recent show, but showed up late because she was at the hospital because of her health. We had heard the singer had pneumonia, but managed to perform her couples dance despite being very ill. The judges were forced to score Tamar’s first dance based on her rehearsal footage. It turns out that Braxton is even sicker than anyone thought. She has blood clots on both sides of her lungs.
We have the recap from Dancing With the Stars November 9th episode right here!
Taking to Instagram, Braxton wrote the following message to her fans:
“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.”
This is not the first health related issue on Dancing With the Stars this season, as Kim Zolciack had a mini-stroke and a heart issue causing her to drop out from the show, as well.
Braxton’s condition has forced her to quit“Dancing With The Stars” in addition to canceling the remaining dates of her current tour.
