Grammy-winning singer Tori Kelly was hospitalized on Sunday night after collapsing while out with friends in downtown Los Angeles. Doctors have since diagnosed her with blood clots in her legs and lungs, and they are still working to determine if there are clots around her heart.
Kelly, 30, was reportedly feeling unwell at dinner and complained of having an abnormally fast heartbeat. She then passed out and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood. She is currently in the ICU and her condition is described as “serious.”
Blood clots can be a serious medical condition, and they can be fatal in some cases. They occur when blood thickens and forms a clot, which can block blood flow to an organ or tissue. In Kelly’s case, the clots are reportedly located in her legs and lungs, which could be life-threatening.
Doctors are currently working to break up the clots and to prevent them from forming again. They are also monitoring Kelly’s heart function and other vital signs.
Kelly is a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who has released three studio albums. She is known for her soulful voice and her relatable lyrics. She has won numerous awards, including two Grammy Awards for Best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance/Song.
