Singer Toni Braxton is currently in a Los Angeles hospital being treated for issues related to Lupus.

The 45-year-old R&B singer told fans in a tweet yesterday:  “Hey guys, I'm in the hospital for health issues related to Lupus & Blood clots, I will be home soon...Thanks for all the love & support! Xoxo.” 

Two years ago Braxton revealed she has Lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that killed Braxton's uncle, the Huffington Post reports. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.

July 21: 5SOS Get Down in the Dirty Laundry

July 21: 5SOS Get Down in the Dirty Laundry

We know and love 5 Seconds of Summer's goofy side and it was on full display for a livestream with MTV earlier today. In a segment that surely made fans squeal, the guys riled through a pile of dirty laundry don a slew of ridiculous undergarments. While Michael looks content in his pink boxers/thong combo, we can't say the same about Calum, with Luke and Ashton looking equally perplexed, as to how to layer a lacy G-String over his highlighter-yellow shorts.
