The 64-year-old pop icon, Madonna, was discovered in an unconscious state in New York over the weekend and was swiftly admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where she received overnight intubation to assist her breathing.

In a recent announcement made by Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, it was disclosed that she is grappling with a significant bacterial infection. This ailment is of such gravity that she requires ample time to recuperate, necessitating her upcoming tour’s postponement.

Originally slated to commence in Vancouver on July 15, the tour dates will now be rescheduled.

Madonna’s family

Madonna is a mother to six children. Her eldest daughter, Lourdes, aged 26, stood by her side during the period of hospitalization. The pop icon frequently shares heartfelt tributes dedicated to her 92-year-old father, Silvio Ciccone, indicating a close bond with him. Additionally, Madonna maintains strong relationships with several of her siblings.

In particular, Madonna has three sisters: Paula, Melanie, and Jennifer, and four brothers: Anthony, Martin, Christopher, and Mario. Unfortunately, Anthony, aged 66, passed away in February due to throat cancer and respiratory failure.

The Ciccone siblings generally prefer to lead a private life, graciously stepping aside from the public spotlight, while their famous relative thrives on it.

A close family member of the singer shared their harrowing experience during several distressing days, unsure whether Madonna would overcome her health crisis.

The unexpected collapse served as a stark wake-up call for the Michigan-born artist, who believed in her invincibility and had been exerting herself excessively in preparation for the upcoming tour.

The relative said, “She thinks that she is still young when, in fact, she is not. She also believes that she is invincible.”

Madonna’s manager’s remarks about her health

The 64-year-old’s longtime manager, Guy Oseary, was the one who shared the singer’s health scare with the world through an Instagram post. Oseary revealed that Madonna has been compelled to postpone her highly-anticipated 40th anniversary tour due to her ongoing medical challenges.

He reassured fans that she is expected to make a full recovery and that her health is improving, but emphasized that she is still under medical care.

While Mr. Oseary did not provide specific details regarding Madonna’s treatment or the circumstances of her hospitalization, he did confirm that she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on Saturday and was diagnosed with a bacterial infection.

“On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in the ICU,” he wrote.

Recent updates about Madonna’s health

As of now, Madonna’s children have not made any public statements regarding their mother’s condition. However, her daughter Lourdes shared an image of herself in a provocative corset top on her Instagram Stories shortly before Oseary announced the news of Madonna’s health scare.

Meanwhile, Madonna’s eldest son, Rocco Ritchie, posted pictures and videos of his motorcycle tour in Transylvania, Romania, on June 26, two days after his mother was hospitalized. Rocco made no mention of her health struggles, but instead expressed excitement about his adventurous trip in a unique location, hoping it would be the start of many more.

The singer’s most recent Instagram post was made on June 20, just four days before her hospitalization. The post featured multiple images of Madonna rehearsing for the tour, accompanied by the caption: “The calm before the storm.”

On June 23, she shared another post on her Instagram story, showing herself getting her roots bleached. The following day, she was urgently admitted to the ICU.
