Rosie O’Donnell says Madonna is ‘at home recovering’
Rosie O’Donnell has given a health update on her close friend Madonna. Responding to worried fans on Instagram, the 61-year-old comedian reassured everyone that Madonna is fine and is currently recovering at home after being hospitalized for a “severe bacterial infection.” He replied to a concerned fan: “He’s at home recuperating – generally very strong.”

Madonna’s ‘severe bacterial infection’
Last Wednesday, Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary revealed that the famous pop star had been battling a “severe bacterial infection” just weeks before her highly-anticipated holiday tour began.
According to insiders, Madonna ignored certain symptoms of the disease for a long time, hoping that they would go away on their own. “He didn’t want to take time away from rehearsals,” the source said People magazine.
“He was drained and didn’t feel 100 percent on tour for a while. He relentlessly strives to be the best, to impress his fans and do what others have not done before him.”
Another music industry source added: ‘Madonna has been very busy for a long time and doesn’t take care of herself. He continues to push himself over the edge.”
He was released from the intensive care unit
Madonna was unresponsive and was rushed to a New York hospital on June 24. The “Material Girl” hitmaker was intubated and kept under medical supervision for at least one night. His first daughter, Lourdes Leon, was reportedly by his side when he was taken to the intensive care unit.
An insider later shared it with him People that the Queen of Pop is “out of ICU and recovering.” They added that he was “home and feeling better”.
However, TMZ has learned directly from sources that Madonna’s condition remains uncertain. Since being released from the hospital, she has been experiencing uncontrollable vomiting, indicating that the infection is still wreaking havoc on her body.
Madonna’s holiday tour has been postponed
Madonna’s highly anticipated ‘Celebration’ tour was originally set to kick off in less than three weeks, but has now been postponed due to her ongoing health crisis.
The tour is scheduled to include 53 dates in North America and Europe, with an opening night scheduled for July 15 in Vancouver. However, due to Madonna’s health fears, she had to take a break from all her commitments, including the tour.
Oseary stated that more information about the rescheduled shows and new start date will be shared with fans as soon as possible, writing: “All commitments, including touring, are on hold at this time. We will share more details with you as soon as we know, including a new tour start date and rescheduled performances.”
