Toni Braxton back in hospital

Toni Braxton has been hospitalised due to further complications with her lupus.

The 49-year-old singer was previously forced to postpone two shows after she was taken to hospital due to issues with the autoimmune disease and, after managing to perform in Detroit and Kansas City, the brunette star has been admitted for urgent care once again.

Her team wrote on Twitter on Saturday (15.10.16): "Toni Braxton was hospitalised this afternoon in Cleveland due to complications with her Lupus. Unfortunately, her show tonight in Cleveland will need to be postponed.

"Lupus needs to be constantly monitored and this minor setback should not affect the rest of her tour. Tickets for tonight's show will be honoured at the re-scheduled date that will be announced shortly. (sic)"

The news comes after the 'Breathe Again' hitmaker expressed how "excited" she was to be able to get back on stage after her first hospitalisation earlier this month.

She said at the time: "I am so excited about going back on the road and seeing all of my wonderful fans and friends.

"Everyone's life is complicated and this is just a condition that I live with."

Toni first revealed she suffers with the potentially life-threatening condition in 2010.

Her Uncle previously died from the disease, and her brother is also a carrier.

The 'Unbreak My Heart' singer previously admitted that the hardest part of living with lupus was having to perform, but until this month she prided herself on never having cancelled a show.

She said: "That's the toughest part, when I have to perform. So often, when it's like that, it's a lot of, 'You sing!' to the audience, you know. They kind of help me out a little bit without realising it.

"I've never [cancelled a show]. Even if I can't perform, I still figure it out. Sometimes I look back [at] that evening [and] I go, 'How did I get through that?'"

Toni is next set to perform in Chicago on Sunday 23.
