Toni Braxton is only forty years old. On Monday, the music superstar received a scare from her health. She was hospitalized for chest pains.

Braxton went to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Las Vegas. She was in Vegas as the feature at the Flamingo Hotel And Casino. She has a five night a week show at the casino.

Braxton is a spokeswoman for the American Heart Association. That came after she admitted back in January that she occasionally has high blood pressure, and that her heart flutters. It is
not known if that was the reason she was admitted to the hospital Monday night.

"We wish Toni a quick recovery and would like her to take the time she needs to regain optimal health," said Flamingo Hotel and Casino President, Don Marrandino. The show runs Tuesday through Saturday, but Braxton will probably not return until this weekend.

She has suffered from pericarditis. That is an inflammation of the lining of a heart. That diagnosis took place years ago. It has been reported that Braxton is in good condition after Monday's scare.
