Did You Miss It? Toni Braxton Talks Major Recent Health Scare, Tamar’s Wedding Plans, & More with ‘Sherri’ [Watch]

Published: Tuesday 2nd May 2023 by Rashad

‘Un-Break My Heart’ has taken on a new meaning for R&B icon Toni Braxton over the years.

The 7-time GRAMMY winner, who has been open about her battles with lupus, microvascular angina, and other health concerns, made headlines in late April when she took to ‘The Today Show’ to reveal she recently had to have a coronary stent placed to prevent a possibly fatal heart attack.

“It (was) put in at a really, really scary moment,” the 55-year-old told the morning talk show, adding that the experience felt “surreal.”

Later on ‘Sherri‘ (May 1), Braxton elaborated on the cardiac episode with surprising details.

“I had a little scare about six months ago,” an emotional Toni started. “Having lupus affects a lot of your vital organs. It’s starting to affect my kidneys. It can affect any organ in your body, but this time it’s affecting my heart,” she revealed before detailing her coronary artery was 80% blocked and having to undergo surgery to avoid a massive heart attack.

A paid spokesperson for Aurinia Pharmaceuticals’ ‘Get Uncomfortable’ campaign (which encourages routine kidney testing for people living with lupus nephritis), look inside to hear more about Toni’s health journey.

On a lighter note, Braxton was also quizzed about the wedding plans of her GRAMMY-nominated sister Tamar (who announced her engagement to ‘Queen’s Court’ contestant Jeremy Robinson earlier this year).

“I don’t know [that they’re having a wedding]; I think they might elope,” she said at the clip’s 22:40 mark in response to quizzing on if she would be performing at the nuptials.
