Tamar Braxton barely made it to the live broadcast of “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday night, where she competed in spite of being hospitalized that day for what was thought to be pneumonia. As a result, she held on to her spot in the competition instead of forfeiting. But she has since announced that despite her triumphant return from the hospital, she’ll have to withdraw anyway.

She explained on her Instagram page, “With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday’s final #dwts performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.’s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs). As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one’s way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle.”

So what will happen next Monday now that the final five has abruptly become the final four? Will there still be an elimination? Will Alexa PenaVega be invited back (she wouldn’t have been eliminated if Braxton had forfeited)? Click here to log-in and make your predictions, or get started using our drag-and-drop menu below.
