For the second time this season, Dancing With the Stars has lost a contestant due to serious health problems. On Wednesday, 11th November, Tamar Braxton, 38, posted a picture on Instagram to announce that she is leaving the ABC competition.

The picture shows her in bed with her dancing partner Val Chmerkovskiy, Tamar, wrote, “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 @musicbykem. 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 P.E.’s (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 @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER”

During Monday night’s show, Braxton returned to the dance floor after suffering from what was thought to be pneumonia, but it turns out, her situation was even more severe.

Kim Zolciak Biermann was the first to be eliminated last month for failing to compete. The reality star had a previously undiagnosed heart condition and suffered a series of mini strokes. Shortly after leaving the show, she underwent heart surgery.

Get well soon Tamar!
