Halsey Shares Health Update, Reveals Medical Diagnosis After Singleness

Halsey’s musical comeback hasn’t been the mainstream pop star comeback that many would have expected. Yesterday, the singer-songwriter shared the acoustic single “The End,” a heartbreaking account of what life has been like behind closed doors since the era of her last album. Many details about her grueling experience are woven 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 all for the incredible amount of love for ‘The End’ and the support you have shown me since its release,” Halsey began in a recent Instagram post. “I realize everyone is catching up on news I’ve been keeping for a long time and I wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share. “Everyone has been very kind, so I want to share a little more.”

He continued: “In 2022, I was first diagnosed with lupus SLE and then with a rare T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder. Both are currently under control or in remission; and I will probably have both for my entire life.”

Lupus SLE, or systemic lupus erythematosus, is the most common form of 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, in general, “originate when the physiological mechanisms controlling the proliferation of T and B cells break down, resulting in an uncontrolled and autonomous increase in immune cells that “It leads to lymphocytosis and lymphadenopathy and often to the involvement of immune cells.” extranodal sites, for example, bone marrow. Chronic T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders include Sezary syndrome, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma, and large granular lymphocytic leukemia.


“After a rough start, I slowly got everything under control with the help of an amazing doctor,” Halsey continued. “After 2 years, I feel better and am more grateful than ever to have music to turn to. “I can’t wait to get back to where I belong: with all of you singing and screaming your hearts out.”

Coinciding with the release of “The End,” Halsey made a donation to both the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Lupus Research Alliance.
