Tamar Braxton quits Dancing with the Stars blood clots in both lungs


Tamar Braxton quits “Dancing with the Stars”

After pushing through her performance on Monday night, hours after she was rushed to the hospital for suspected pneumonia, Tamar Braxton has quit “Dancing with the Stars” and cancelled her tour dates with Kem due to a very serious health condition.

In a post on her Instagram page, Tamar revealed she returned to the hospital after her performance and learned she doesn’t have pneumonia, she actually has several pulmonary embolisms (blood clots) in both of her lungs!

Pulmonary embolisms occur when blood clots originate in the leg and travel to the lungs.

Tamar wrote, “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.”
