Tamar Braxton is leaving Dancing With The Stars due to blood clots in lungs. Due to health scare Tamar is also cancelling future tour dates. Tamar took to her instagram to inform her fans of her departure from the show.
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. 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. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn't the case. ?Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support❤️ p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER?????
On Monday night Tamar and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were judged on their dress rehearsal performance while Tamar was in the emergency room. Tamar managed to make it back in time for her group performance and avoided disqualification from the competition. Tamar is not the only contestant that had to leave for health reasons, Kim Zoliciak departed from the show after a mini stroke. Get well soon Tamar!
