DWTS: Tamar Braxton Drops Out, for Treatment of Blood Clots in Lungs

After a medical dilemma nearly forced Tamar Braxton to miss Monday’s Dancing With the Stars performance, the Real host has officially withdrawn from the competition, she announced Wednesday.

While initially believed to be suffering from symptoms of pneumonia, Braxton is currently being treated for multiple blood clots in her lungs, as detailed by the R&B singer in an Instagram post:

With Braxton out of the competition, only four partnerships remain: Alek Skarlatos and pro Lindsay Arnold, Carlos PenaVega and pro Witney Carson, Nick Carter and pro Sharna Burgess, and Bindi Irwin and pro Derek Hough.

Will you miss Braxton? Could she have won the Mirror Ball trophy had she and Val Chmerkovskiy remained in the competition? And should an eliminated pair return to fill the void?
