Tori Kelly Hospitalized Due to Blood Clots, EP Release and Show in Jeopardy
Grammy-winning singer Tori Kelly has been rushed to the hospital after collapsing at a restaurant on Sunday night. Reports suggest that she is being treated for blood clots in her legs and lungs. The news was initially reported by TMZ and has since been confirmed by ABC.
According to sources close to the situation, Kelly’s condition is described as “really serious.” The 28-year-old singer allegedly lost consciousness after her heart rate suddenly increased. She was immediately taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical, where she is currently admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Doctors are now working to determine if there are any clots present around Kelly’s heart, a potentially life-threatening situation. As of now, the singer’s representatives have not responded to requests for comment from Rolling Stone regarding her health status.
This unfortunate event comes at a crucial time for Kelly, as she had plans to release her much-anticipated EP, titled Tori, in the coming days. The EP features collaborations with acclaimed artists Ayra Starr and Jon Bellion. Additionally, Kelly was scheduled to host a show at The Roxy in Los Angeles to celebrate the album launch.
Dr. Jennifer Ashton, a medical expert, has shed some light on the condition and its effects on young people. While it may come as a surprise to many, it is possible for young individuals to develop blood clots. Symptoms can include leg tenderness or swelling, along with shortened breath, coughing, or chest pain if the clot is in the lung.
Vein thrombosis, the condition stemmed from blood clots, affects an estimated 900,000 people in the United States, as reported by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Shockingly, one-third of those affected with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) may face long-term complications.
Fans and well-wishers around the world are anxiously waiting for updates on Tori Kelly’s health and recovery. As her EP release and show hang in the balance, it is evident that her health takes precedence, and supporters hope for a swift recovery for the talented and beloved artist.
