Johannesburg - It seems US songbird, Tamar Braxton will be coming to South Africa to perform next month, despite the musician being rushed back to hospital with serious health complications this week.

Tamar took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that she had been rushed back to hospital after doctors discovered blood clots in her lungs.

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??????????

It's understood that Tamar will miss all of her upcoming US tour dates, which run a week before she is set to head to South Africa.

But local organisers of the BET Experience have reassured fans that they will be able to see Tamar perform at the event next month.

"VIMN Africa wishes Tamar Braxton a speedy recovery and we are looking forward to her performance at the BET Experience Africa alongside Maxwell, Raphael Saadiq, Young Thug, AKA, Flavour and Diamond Platnumz,” a BET spokesperson told The Juice.

Get better soon, Tamar!
