Singer Toni Braxton has been hospitalised in Los Angeles.

The R&B performer said in a Tweet on Friday that she's been hospitalised 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.
