On Friday, Tamar Braxton said that she had been rushed to the hospital by ambulance this week due to severe flu symptoms. The singer, who shares bloodline with Toni Braxton, posted a lengthy update to Instagram, urging her fans to “stay safe” as flu cases rise across America. 

“This isn’t an attention post… this is an ATTENTION post,” Braxton wrote. “Literally I was with my best friends @normankgyamfi and @wardellmalloy shopping and doing Christmas fun sht and the VERY NEXT DAY I had to be taken to the hospital by AMBULANCE, needed oxygen cause I thought God was taking me home cause I could not breathe and my chest was on FIRE!!”


Braxton paired the caption with a series of photos and videos of herself socialising before the onset of her symptoms and a few shots of herself in her hospital room. 

Braxton explained she was receiving care at Northside Hospital in Atlanta “and was met by the BEST nurses and doctors including @therealdrjackie to find out what’s wrong.” She went on to write that her flu experience has been “worse than COVID in my opinion… I’m on 5 different medications ..please be careful.” 

Braxton added that she isn’t sure where she contracted the virus, but encouraged her fans to “enjoy y’all holiday AT HOME.. u don’t want this .”

Concluded Braxton, “I’m completely isolated cause it’s hella contagious. I love y’all for real.”
