John Shearer/Getty Images for The Recording AcademyToni Braxton revealed she was sick for her entire As Long As I Live tour, and she’s thanking her fans for helping her overcome her illness and complete all the shows.
The seven-time Grammy winner performed for six weeks, and in addition to coping with her chronic lupus, she was also suffering from pleurisy, which causes sharp chest pains and constant coughing.
“We got through the tour, As Long As I Live. It was tough. Good and bad days having stupid lupus. I couldn’t have done it without you guys,” Toni said in an Instagram video.
“I’m feeling so much better. Thank you guys for singing along with me. Singing the songs that I needed you guys to get me through those nights that were tough.”
The 51-year old singer added that she loved walking through the crowd and meeting fans face-to-face.
“I got to go into the audience to see you guys and connect with you. My favorite thing to do is to go and say high and I got to do that and touch you guys,” she said. “Thank you for all your support.”
Now that the oldest Braxton sister has ended her six-week tour, she’s binging on her favorite TV series, movies, and snacks.
“For the next two weeks we’re gonna gain five pounds. We’re gonna eat potato chips and chocolate chip cookies,” Toni says. “I am going to watch Netflix and watch my favorite show. I’m gonna get caught up, The Good Wife, the spinoff, and watch Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, Bad Boys 1 and 2, and wait for Bad Boys 3.”
