Braxton was again hit by a very serious health condition and the singer had to be taken to the hospital immediately as her Immune system began to shut down.

She is now been treated for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), a condition which harms the human body’s immune system by mistakenly attacking cells, tissue and organs.

It can be recalled in 2008, the singer had to cancel a series of concerts in Las Vegas after receiving treatment for pericarditis, a viral inflammation of the heart.

Later that year, the 43-year-old had a benign tumour removed from her breast shortly after taking part in the American version of Strictly Come Dancing.

Braxton told US website TMZ: “I wanted to say thanks to all my fans for their support.

“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 rumours started and I will totally be fine as I’m blessed to have an amazing family for support.”

Braxton is best known for her hits, ‘Un-Break My Heart’ and ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough.’
