Tamar Braxton is out of 'Dancing With The Stars!'
The singer took to her Instagram to announce that she is stepping away from the ABC competition series due to poor health.
"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," posting a picture to Instagram from her hospital bed with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy, the 38-year-old wrote.
During Monday night's show, Braxton returned to the dance floor after suffering from what she thought was pneumonia, but it turns out, her situation was even more severe.
"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," She said
After encouraging her fans to take care of themselves, the R&B singer praised Chmerkovskiy, writing, "p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER.”
Braxton is the second contestant to leave this season for health concerns, after Kim Zolciak was eliminated last month for failing to compete. The reality star had a previously undiagnosed heart condition and suffered from several mini strokes. Shortly after leaving the show, she underwent heart surgery.
