Toni Braxton hospitalized again, cancels concert

Toni Braxton was hospitalized Saturday due to complications from lupus. The hospitalization caused the singer to cancel a concert in Cleveland, Ohio.

"Toni Braxton was hospitalized this afternoon in Cleveland due to complications with her Lupus," an official statement on the singer's Twitter account read. "Lupus needs to be constantly monitored and this minor setback should not affect the rest of her tour."

 

Braxton's Twitter account noted that tickets for the canceled show would be honored at a rescheduled concert date to be announced later.

Saturday marked Braxton's second hospital visit in less than three weeks due to lupus complications.

Earlier this month, the Grammy Award-winner was taken to a Los Angeles hospital for treatment.

"Toni is resting at home and she is fine," an Oct. 4 statement from her representatives said. "She was in an L.A. hospital for a few days being treated for her lupus. She has been released and starts rehearsals for her upcoming tour this week. She was not in serious condition, though lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times."

Braxton, 49, revealed that she has lupus in 2011. The chronic autoimmune disease causes inflammation in internal organs, joints and skin. 

Braxton is currently traveling for her "The Hits Tour," which began Oct. 8 in Oakland, California, and ends Nov. 13 in Uncasville, Connecticut.

  • Authorities have identified a 10-year-old boy killed on an Alabama beach this week as Tropical Storm Cindy churned toward shore.  Nolan McCabe, of St. Louis, Missouri, was vacationing in Fort Morgan with his family Wednesday morning when Cindy’s storm surge washed a large log on the beach over the boy. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Nolan suffered severe head injuries when the log rolled over his body.  Baldwin County Sheriff Huey Mack estimated that the log was about 14 feet long and weighed several hundred pounds, the Post-Dispatch said.  AL.com reported that Nolan was killed feet away from the front door of the beachfront home in which he and his family were staying.  >> Read more trending news Nolan’s father, Joshua McCabe, told investigators that he was also outside that morning, attending to other children playing on the beach. He ran toward his son when he saw a large wave coming ashore, but was unable to grab Nolan before the log was washed into him.  Efforts by family members, firefighters and emergency medical technicians to resuscitate Nolan were unsuccessful, AL.com reported.  Nolan, an avid cub scout, would have been a fifth-grade student at Wohlwend Elementary in St. Louis in the fall. A statement the Mehlville School District indicated that the boy’s parents and sister were all present when he died.  Nolan was the third elementary student in the school district to die since April, the district’s statement said. One boy was killed in a car crash, and the other was struck by a car while riding his bike.  The parent-teacher organization at Wohlwend Elementary set up a GoFundMe account to help Nolan’s family with the expenses related to his death. 
  • A 9-foot-6 inch sturgeon weighing in at 500 pounds was found pinned Thursday in a radial gate at the Keno Dam in Oregon, according to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. >> Read more trending news The fish had sustained a head injury at some point and was dead when officials found it. It is believed to have been one of 221 sturgeons moved in 1958 from the Columbia River to Klamath County. At the time, officials were attempting to create fisheries in the area. However, the fish didn’t take, and officials found no evidence that they were able to spawn in their new homes. “It’s thought the female sturgeon was from the original transplant group,” ODFW said in a Facebook post. “Most of those fish would be from 60 to 70 years old now, with the potential to live nearly 100 years.” District fish biologist Bill Tinniswood said the fish, a female sturgeon, had millions of eggs upon her death. Officials believe that the lack of available male sturgeons to spawn with left the eggs to build up. Two anglers have reported seeing sturgeons on the Upper Klamath Lake this year, Tinniswood said.
