Lupus puts singer Toni Braxton in hospital

Singer Toni Braxton has been admitted to hospital in Los Angeles for “minor health issues” related to lupus.

The R&B performer said in a Tweet that she was in hospital adding: “But no worries! I will be out any day now.”

The 45-year-old singer of 'Un-break My Heart' revealed two years ago that she had lupus, a potentially deadly auto-immune disease that killed her uncle. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.

Braxton said in a recent interview that doctors told her the lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would probably be diminished and the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.
