Madonna’s celebrity admirers and friends have expressed their deep concern for the iconic singer following the news of her hospitalization this week due to a severe bacterial infection.
According to reports, the renowned superstar, aged 64, was rushed to the intensive care unit after being found unresponsive, leading to the postponement of her highly anticipated 84-date Celebration tour.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, confirmed that the beloved entertainer was grappling with a “serious bacterial infection,” which necessitated an extended stay in the ICU. He assured her fans that Madonna’s health was improving and she was expected to make a full recovery, although she continued to receive medical care.
In response to Oseary’s post, Madonna’s friends inundated the comments section with heartfelt messages, offering their prayers and wishes for her speedy recovery. Michelle Visage emphasized, “TAKE GOOD CARE OF OUR QUEEN,” while Rosanna Arquette conveyed her love and positive energy for Madonna’s well-being. Rita Wilson chimed in, expressing her prayers for a quick recovery.
Supportive messages poured in from all corners, with Isla Fisher affirming, “Sending her so much love from us,” and Gwendoline Christie, known for her role in Game of Thrones, simply conveying, “So much love Xxxxxxxxxxx.”
Although Oseary refrained from divulging specific details about Madonna’s treatment or hospitalization, he did mention that she was admitted to the ICU on Saturday following the diagnosis of a bacterial infection.
The Page Six publication reported that Madonna’s eldest daughter, Lourdes Leon, steadfastly remained by her side throughout the entire hospitalization period.
As Madonna’s spokesperson, Oseary acknowledged that the start of her highly anticipated tour would have to be postponed indefinitely.
The singer had dedicated months to rehearsing for the tour, which was scheduled to commence in Vancouver, Canada, on July 15. Oseary assured fans that more information, including a new tour start date and rescheduled shows, would be shared once available.
A source close to the popstar confirmed that she had been moved out of the ICU and was currently in the recovery phase. The news prompted an outpouring of positive energy and love from fans, who eagerly wished for her well-being and expressed their concern.
Madonna’s children have yet to publicly comment on their mother’s condition, but Lourdes did share an image of herself wearing a provocative corset top on her Instagram Stories just hours before Oseary disclosed the news about Madonna’s medical emergency.
Meanwhile, Madonna’s eldest son, Rocco Ritchie, took to social media to share snapshots and videos of his motorcycle tour in Transylvania, Romania, on June 26, two days after his mother’s hospitalization. He made no reference to her health struggles, focusing instead on the excitement of his journey.
While the specifics of Madonna’s bacterial infection remain undisclosed, the Cleveland Clinic explains that bacterial infections can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, lungs, brain, and blood. Common bacterial ailments encompass urinary tract infections, food poisoning, sexually transmitted infections, as well as certain skin, sinus, and ear infections. Typically, antibiotics are employed as the primary treatment for such infections. However, infections that penetrate deeper into the body, such as the blood, heart, lungs, or brain, can pose life-threatening risks.
We wish her a fast recovery.
