This is so sad and scary at the same time!
Despite her best efforts to fight through her illness, Tamar Braxton has been forced to withdraw from this season of Dancing with the Stars.
After surviving Monday's shocking elimination even though she was unable to make it through the whole episode, The Real star announced Wednesday morning that she and Val Chmerkovskiy would be dropping out due to a misdiagnosis.

Early reports revealed that Tamar had been battling pneumonia for the past few weeks, but in her Instagram post, she shared that it was actually blood clots in both her lungs that were making her sick, saying:
"With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of DWTS has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with KEM. After yesterday's final DWTS performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn't want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don't have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in both sides of my lungs) As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one's way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #Tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn't the case. 🏆Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support❤️ p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo Val Chmerkovskiy for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER😘🙌🙌"
This unfortunate news leaves just Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess, Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough, Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson, and Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold in the running for the Mirrorball Trophy with too many weeks to fill…
Do U think this means ABC will bring back Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas??
Get well soon, Tamar!
