Madonna, an iconic pop singer, was hospitalized in New York City after being found unresponsive on Saturday.
According to Page Six, the pop singer was intubated “for at least one night” prior to having the tube removed. Madonna is currently recovering in the hospital and is expected to make a “full recovery.”
“On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several day stay in the ICU,” Guy Oseary, Madonna’s talent manager, wrote in a post on Instagram Wednesday. “Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.”
According to Page Six, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon has reportedly been beside the pop singer throughout her unexpected hospitalization.
Madonna, age 64, was planning to start her “Celebration” tour within the next three weeks, according to the New York Post. The “Celebration” tour was planned to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Madonna’s music career and was expected to kick off in Vancouver at Rogers Arena on July 15.
The singer’s recent bacterial infection hospitalization will delay the upcoming tour, as well as any additional commitments the singer had scheduled.
“At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour,” Oseary stated. “We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”
The New York Post reported that just three days prior to Madonna’s hospitalization, the pop singer celebrated the graduation of her twin daughters from elementary school.
Sharing a photo of her twin 10-year-olds Stelle and Estere on social media, Madonna wrote, “2 Kweens!!!! Happy Graduation!”
