Popular Female Musician Hospitalized, Rushed Into ICU Over Serious Illness

Madonna had to be ‘rushed to hospital and intubated after being found unresponsive’ in New York on Saturday with the star’s manager confirming that she was suffering from a ‘serious bacterial infection’ that required a days-long stay in the ICU.

The 64-year-old popstar’s terrifying health scare was shared with the world by her longtime manager Guy Oseary, who revealed on Instagram that Madonna has been forced to postpone her hotly-anticipated 40th-anniversary tour as a result of her medical struggles.

Oseary insisted in his post that the singer and mother-of-six is ‘expected to make a full recovery’ and that her ‘health is improving’, but added that she is ‘still under medical care’.

According to Page Six, Madonna who was due to kick off her 84 date Celebration tour in Vancouver, Canada on July 15 was ‘discovered on Saturday’, when she was ‘taken to the ICU’ and ‘intubated overnight’.

The publication added that Madonna’s eldest daughter, Lourdes Leon, 26, remained by her side throughout her hospitalization.

Although Oseary did not share the specifics of Madonna’s treatment or the conditions of her hospitalization, he confirmed that she was taken to the ICU on Saturday and that she was diagnosed with a bacterial infection.

‘On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in the ICU,’ he wrote on Wednesday afternoon.

‘Her health is improving, however, she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.’

The longtime music manager then revealed that the singer is being forced to postpone the start of her tour, for which she has been rehearsing for months and which was due to begin in a matter of weeks writing: ‘At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour.’

He did not reveal when Madonna might be well enough to commence the international tour, simply promising fans that he would ‘share more details as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows’.

According to sources close to the singer, she has been working around the clock to ensure that her tour is nothing but perfect, with one revealing that she has been rehearsing six days a week, while another said in April that she was ‘driving everyone up the wall with her perfectionism’.

Madonna’s children have yet to publicly comment on their mother’s condition, however, Lourdes did share an image of herself posing in a racy corset top on her Instagram Stories just hours before Oseary shared the news about the singer’s medical scare.

Meanwhile, Madonna’s eldest son Rocco Ritchie shared a series of images and videos of himself on a motorcycle tour in Transylvania, Romania, on June 26, two days after his mother’s hospitalization.

He made no mention of her health struggles, simply noting that he’d had a ‘crazy trip’ in a ‘crazy place’ and that it was ‘hopefully the beginning of many’.

It is not known exactly what kind of infection Madonna is suffering from, however, bacterial infections can affect many different parts of the body, including the skin, lungs, brain, and blood, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Common bacterial diseases include UTIs, food poisoning, STIs, and some skin, sinus, and ear infections,’ the medical body states, noting that the most common form of treatment is a course of antibiotics.

There are many bacterial infections that aren’t usually serious or can be treated easily with antibiotics,’ it explains. ‘However, any bacterial infection that gets deep into your body, like in your blood, heart, lungs or brain, can be life-threatening.’

The Madonna: The Celebration Tour, was slated to run from July 15, 2023, to January 30, 2024.

It would be the singer’s 12th concert tour and will visit cities in North America and Europe anticipating 84 shows.
