End of the Road: Tamar Braxton Officially Quits Dancing With the Stars

The singer's health scare was a lot worse than she expected.

Published November 11, 2015

Tamar Braxton showed on Monday night that she was a trooper when she made it back to the Dancing With the Stars studio to perform after being hospitalized for pneumonia. While her courage is commendable, the singer has now decided to hang up her dancing shoes as her health is in serious jeopardy.


According to TMZ, it turns out that pneumonia wasn't what the The Real co-host was suffering from, but rather something much worse: she had blood clots on both sides of her lungs.

Taking to Instagram, Tamar explained just how severe her condition really is, detailing it all in a lengthy caption under a photo of her lying in a hospital bed with her DWTS partner, Val Chmerkovskiy.

Seeing as the Braxton Family Values breakout star was a true contender for the mirror ball trophy, this is sad news, but her health comes first. Get better soon, Tamar!
