"Family was preparing for the worst" Madonna is out of ICU after being hospitalised with a "serious bacterial infection", forcing her to postpone her upcoming Celebration tour.
Pop icon Madonna is now recuperating at home after being discharged from an intensive care unit (ICU) due to a "serious bacterial infection".
The 64-year-old American singer was rushed to an ICU on 24 June. Family members have come forward over fears that they "may lose her".
A source close to the family told CNN that: "She is in the clear." The source continued that "she’s resting, feeling better and following doctors [sic] orders."
Manager Guy Oseary took to Instagram on Wednesday to say the singer had spent several days in the ICU after becoming ill on Saturday and added that she's expected to make a full recovery.
A relative of the 'Material Girl' singer told MailOnline: "For the past couple of days, no one really knew which direction this was going to turn, and her family was preparing for the worst."
"That is why it was kept a secret since Saturday. Everyone believed that we may lose her and that has been the reality of the situation."
On 15 July, Madonna was due to kick off her Celebration tour in Vancouver, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of her debut single.
The Celebration tour is scheduled to make stops in Detroit, Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Denver, Atlanta and Boston, among other cities, and its first leg was slated to end on 7 October in Las Vegas.
Live Nation confirmed the tour postponement, citing Oseary's post. Oseary said details about rescheduled dates would be shared soon.
"Her health is improving, however, she is still under medical care," Oseary wrote.
