Singer Toni Braxton has been hospitalised after suffering blood clots stemming from her lupus condition.

The Un-Break My Heart hitmaker opened up about her struggle with lupus last year (11), and now the auto-immune condition, which attacks healthy body tissue, has left her in need of medical attention.

She took to on Friday (07Nov12) to tells fans about her hospitalisation.

In a post on her page, Braxton writes, "Hey guys, I'm in the hospital for health issues related to lupus & blood clots, I will be home soon...Thanks for all the love & support!"

It is the second time Braxton has been hospitalised due to the illness this year (12) - she was also admitted to a clinic in January after her immune system started to shut down.

Braxton also suffers from heart condition microvascular angina.
