Madonna was discovered unresponsive and was taken to a hospital in New York City. The 64-year-old pop singer was found at a residence on Saturday before being taken to the ICU, where she spent the night being intubated.
Guy Oseary, Madonna’s longtime manager, wrote on Instagram on Wednesday that his client “developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in the ICU.” The “Vogue” singer is reportedly healing in a regular ward of the unnamed hospital after being discharged from the acute care unit.
Lordes Leon, the singer’s 26-year-old oldest child, reportedly stayed by her famous mother’s bedside throughout the entire experience. What kind of bacterial illness Madonna acquired is presently unknown.
In less than three weeks, Madonna was scheduled to launch her eagerly awaited “Celebration” tour, but the concerts have already been postponed due to her health situation. The “Like A Virgin” singer had 53 performances planned around North America and Europe, beginning on July 15 in Vancouver.
“At this time, we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour,” Oseary wrote. “We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.”
The Grammy winner pledged to play all of her best songs, starting with her self-titled first album from 1983 all the way up to her most recent album, “Madame X,” from 2019. Madonna celebrated her twin children’ elementary school graduation on social media on Wednesday, just three days before she was admitted to the hospital.
“2 Kweens!!!! Happy Graduation!” the proud mom wrote alongside a photo of 10-year-olds Stelle and Estere.
Madonna celebrated Mother’s Day in New York City with all six of her kids back in May. She also has a daughter, Mercy, 17, a son, Rocco, 22, and a daughter, David Banda, 17, as well as Lourdes, Stelle, and Estere.
Uncertainty surrounds Madonna’s present romantic situation. When Maluma, 29, was being prepared for her tour, insiders revealed that the crooner was getting “ridiculously close” to her.
In the six and a half months planned, Madonna was to do 84 gigs, a demanding schedule by any standard. But given that Madonna canceled 18 dates on her most recent tour, Madame X, which ran from September 17, 2019, through March 8, 2020, it only seemed more difficult (at least from the outside).
The covid-19 epidemic caused the cancellation of two of those dates, but injuries caused the cancellation of the other two.
As I climbed the ladder to sing Batuka, Madonna posted a video of herself from the tour to Instagram on December 24, 2019. The pain from my injuries, which has been unbearable for the past few days, had me in tears on Saturday night in Miami.
For each song I prayed as I performed each song that I would make it to the next and finish the performance. My prayers were heard, and I succeeded.
