The 30-year-old “Paper Hearts” singer was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Sunday after collapsing during a night out with friends, TMZ reported Monday, July 24.
Upon arrival, doctors discovered blood clots in Kelly’s legs and lungs, according to the outlet. Doctors are still working to determine if Kelly has clots near her heart.
Kelly’s health issues come just days before she is set to drop her latest EP, Tori, on Friday, July 28. “This is the first taste of so much more to come,” Kelly teased via Instagram on July 11, telling her followers to “pre-save” the new songs.
Kelly, who married Andre Murillo in 2018, he released the track list for his EP on July 17. The set list includes songs called “Alive if I Die”, “Cut”, and “Shelter”, as well as four more new songs.
Before her trip to the hospital on Sunday, Kelly gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at her photo shoot for the EP.
“1 week out ♡,” she wrote via Instagram on Friday, July 21, along with several photos from the set. In one video, Kelly made a peace sign as she posed in her dressing room.
Tori is Kelly’s fourth EP. She released her first extended play, Handmade Songs, in May 2012. Kelly has since released two more EPs: Foreword and Solitude in October 2013 and August 2020, respectively.
Kelly has also produced four full-length studio albums throughout her career. Her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, was released in June 2015 and peaked at number 2 on the US charts. She later released Hiding Place in September 2018, Inspired by True Events in August 2019, and A Tori Kelly Christmas in October 2020.
“Music is all I know, so I’ve been wanting the fans to hear that,” Kelly told Elite Daily in May while promoting her upcoming EP. “We’re inspired by hip-hop, late ’90s to be specific, and R&B is definitely a big inspiration for me. I’m touching all these different musical aspects of my career, but at the same time, it’s a new musical era for me and there’s so much more to discover.”
