LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Toni Braxton has been released from the hospital after checking in last week over complications from lupus and blood clots.

Writing on her official account on Sunday, Dec. 9, Braxton said: “Feeling a little better today, my nurse just left, just happy to be home!”

The R&B performer said in a Tweet on Friday that she had been hospitalized because of “minor health issues” related to Lupus. A spokeswoman confirmed the hospitalization but had no other details. “But no worries!,” Braxton wrote to fans. “I will be out any day now.”

The 45-year-old singer of “Un-break My Heart” revealed two years ago she has Lupus, a potentially deadly autoimmune disease that killed Braxton’s uncle. She also suffers from a narrowing of the blood vessels in her heart.

Braxton said in a recent “20/20″ interview that doctors told her the Lupus diagnosis meant her performing career would likely be diminished and the disease helped push her into a recent bankruptcy.
