Baltimore pastor Jamal Bryant made the news public on social media early Wednesday (Aug. 30). The singer has suffered blood clots in her lungs, known as a pulmonary embolism and  deep vein thrombosis, which occurs in the leg or arm. Bryant, who announced his relationship with the singer in 2016, mentioned the singer-songwriter also has blood clots in her right arm.

Tweet has continued to make music over the years with the 2016 release of Charlene and contributions to Solange’s Grammy-winning album, A Seat At The Table. She also recently delivered another stellar performance at this year’s Essence Music Festival.

Speaking to VIBE last year, the singer was thrilled to share her growing relationship with her faith. “God is definitely the one to bring me out of some messed up situations and sometimes when I didn’t even want to be here,” she said.

“It’s a whole lot of things that go on that will mess with your confidence so I knew I had to be strong enough to come back and endure, I had to have God and walk in his will to be able to do it.”

This is a developing story.
