Following the news of Madonna’s hospitalisation, her 2 eldest sons have been spotted looking emotional as they are seen for the first time since she was found unresponsive.
The news of her ill health came just weeks before the star was set to embark on her eighty-four date ‘Celebration’ world tour, to honour the fortieth anniversary of her career.
The pop icon was admitted to intensive care on June 24 and continues to get medical care in hospital. The star’s manager Guy Oseary shared the news in a post on Instagram, announcing that she had suffered a ‘serious bacterial infection’.
As per Page Six, the sixty-four-year-old was found ‘unresponsive’ at a New York City residence on Saturday, and was then admitted to the ICU. She was said to have been intubated, but has since had the tube removed and has been moved into a regular ward.
Thankfully, her manager reassured fans her condition has improved and she is expected to make a full recovery.
She was set to embark on her ‘Celebration’ world tour in less than 3 weeks’ time, but the shows have now been postponed to allow for time for the star to get better.
The statement from her management team read: “On Saturday June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several day stay in the ICU.
“Her health is improving, however she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.
“At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”
