Halsey Shares Health Update, Reveals Medical Diagnosis After Single

Halsey‘s musical return has not been the conventional pop star comeback that many may have expected. Yesterday, the singer and songwriter shared the acoustic single “The End,” a heart-wrenching account of what her life has looked like behind closed doors since her last album era. Many details about her grueling experience are weaved into the song itself, and the reaction to the record has inspired the musician to shed even more light on her recent darkness.

“Thank you guys for the unbelievable amount of love for ‘The End’ and the support you’ve shown me since its release,” Halsey began in a recent post on Instagram. “I realize everyone is catching up with news I’ve held in for a very long time, and I wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share. You’ve all been so kind so I want to share a bit more.”

She continued: “In 2022, I was first diagnosed with Lupus SLE and then a rare T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder. Both of which are currently being managed or in remission; and both of which I will likely have for the duration of my life.”

Lupus SLE, or systemic lupus erythematosus, is the most common form of the autoimmune disease. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, “SLE can cause inflammation of multiple organs or organ systems in the body, either acutely or chronically.”

The National Library of Medicine states that lymphoproliferative disorders, generally, “originate when physiological mechanisms of control of proliferation of both T and B cells break down, resulting in the uncontrolled and autonomous increase of immune cells leading to lymphocytosis and lymphadenopathy, and often involvement of extranodal sites, e.g., bone marrow.” T-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders include Sezary syndrome, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma, and large granulated lymphocyte leukemia.


“After a rocky start, I slowly got everything under control with the help of amazing doctor,” Halsey continued. “After 2 years, I’m feeling better and I’m more grateful than ever to have music to turn to. I can’t wait to get back where I belong: With you all Singing and screaming my heart out.”

In time with the release of “The End,” Halsey donated to both the  Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Lupus Research Alliance.
