TLC singer T-Boz -she's the one with the short hair, sassy style and deep, smoky voice-- has always shared details of her ongoing battle with sickle cell anemia with the media and her fans, even when the all-girl vocal trio was at the height of its fame. She has continued her trend of holding nothing back and has revealed that she had a brain tumor removed.
"I started having headaches. They were so frequent; something was wrong," T-Boz, born Tionne Watkins, told CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta. "My doctor called but his voice sounded funny. And I said, 'You're going to say something like I have a brain tumor or something right?' And he got quiet." Damn, that had to be scary! We hate when that happens, when you get all prognosticational with your own diagnosis and you're not being serious!
T-Boz said that the tumor was successfully removed, but she been affected with some off-kilter balance as a result of the removal. She continues to educate others about sickle cell anemia, as well.
We're glad you are okay, T-Boz.
