Police seen at Madonna’s home, discharged from hospital
Madonna has been discharged from the hospital after experiencing a health scare that landed her in the ICU, according to confirmation from TheFantasyTimes. The BBC reported on Thursday that the 64-year-old music superstar is now “home and feeling better” after being discharged. Furthermore, a source informed CNN that Madonna was transported to her New York City residence via a private ambulance. TheFantasyTimes also verified that a police escort was observed outside the property of the iconic “Material Girl” singer. Her children have been seen visiting her while she recovers. Madonna’s sons, David Banda and Rocco Ritchie, were photographed arriving at her Upper East Side apartment on Wednesday. On Thursday, a police escort was spotted outside Madonna’s home, and her property was protected by bodyguards and several SUVs. The news of Madonna’s hospitalization was initially shared by her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, in an Instagram post on Wednesday. Oseary revealed that Madonna had developed a “serious bacterial infection” on Saturday, which resulted in her spending several days in the ICU. He added that while her health is improving, she is still under medical care and a full recovery is expected. TheFantasyTimes learned exclusively that Madonna’s illness was severe, with a source stating that she became “unresponsive” at one point. The insider revealed that she had to be intubated for at least one night before the tube was removed, but she is now alert and recovering. Sources also provided insight into the factors that likely contributed to Madonna’s declining health. It was revealed that the pop star had been vigorously rehearsing for her upcoming “Celebration” tour, putting in 12-hour days. As a result of her recent illness, the tour, which was scheduled to begin in Vancouver on July 15, has been postponed. Madonna’s management team made the decision to pause all commitments, including the tour. Madonna herself expressed a desire to continue with the tour when she is ready, but her team wants to prioritize her recovery and not rush her. Madonna has not yet addressed her hospitalization publicly, but her close friend Rosie O’Donnell assured fans that she is “feeling good.” TheFantasyTimes has reached out to Madonna’s representatives for comment.
