Toni Braxton is recovering after a heath scare landed her in a Los Angeles hospital for four days.

The stay was a result of complications stemming from her battle with lupus. Thankfully the problems were not life-threatening, and the 48-year-old singer has since been discharged from the facility.

“Toni is resting at home and she is fine,” her rep told PEOPLE. “She was in an L.A. hospital for a few days being treated for her lupus. She has been released and starts rehearsals for her upcoming tour this week. She was not in serious condition, though lupus is a serious disease and must be monitored at all times.”

According to TMZ, Braxton’s boyfriend Birdman flew all the way from Texas to be by her side.

Braxton first went public about her struggle with the auto-immune disease in 2010 during an interview with CBS News. Two years earlier she canceled a string of dates after being hospitalized for chest pains.
