On Sunday, singer Tori Kelly was hospitalized in Los Angeles after collapsing at a restaurant. Reports from TMZ indicate that she complained of a rapid heartbeat before passing out and remaining unconscious for a period of time.
Concerned for her well-being, her friends decided against calling an ambulance and instead took her to Cedars-Sinai themselves to ensure she received the desired treatment.
Medical evaluations revealed the presence of blood clots around Kelly’s lungs and in her legs. Initially, doctors were investigating if there were any blood clots around her heart as well.
The situation has been deemed “really serious,” according to TMZ’s sources.
Prior to the incident, Kelly had posted an upbeat message on her Instagram stories, expressing love and positivity. She was looking forward to the release of her new EP scheduled for July 28.
Last year, she acknowledged the delay in releasing new music and touring, attributing it to the complexities of the music business. Despite the wait, she remained grateful for her team’s support and assured her fans that the upcoming music would be worth it.
Tori Kelly is an accomplished artist, having won two Grammy Awards in 2019 for Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song. She was also recognized with the Billboard Women in Music Breakthrough Artist Award in 2015.
i see your comments👀 & i get frustrated too bc i just wanna put this music out & tour again but unfortunately its not as simple as just releasing songs whenever i want. i wish the business side of things didn’t sometimes slow down the process… but…
