MADONNA’s sons Rocco Ritchie and David Banda looked worried in their first performance since the singer’s health crisis.
The Material Girl singer was hospitalized after contracting an infection that sent her to intensive care and her family were preparing for the worst, according to a relative.
Rocco, 22, and David, 17, were spotted Wednesday out and about in New York City, where their mother is currently being treated.
Madonna’s condition was so bad that the family wasn’t sure if she would get through it, a relative said Daily Mail.
“In the past few days, no one really knew where things were going to go and her family was preparing for the worst,” said the unnamed family member.
“That’s why it’s been kept secret since Saturday.
“Everyone believed that we could lose them and that is the reality.”
Her sons seemed stressed when they were seen walking into Madonna’s apartment building.
This is the first time the Grammy winner’s sons have been seen in public since the news of her health crisis.
“All of Madonna’s family members have agreed on this,” the pop star’s relative said.
On Wednesday, the Like a Virgin singer’s manager Guy Oseary took to social media to share the shocking news.
In a caption, he wrote, “On Saturday June 24th, Madonna contracted a severe bacterial infection that resulted in a stay in intensive care for several days.”
“At this point we have to pause all commitments, including the tour.”
She was found to be unresponsive and was then rushed to a New York City hospital. page six confirmed.
Madonna was intubated for an evening and is now awake and responsive, a source told the publication.
The pop star’s daughter, Lourdes Leon, is said to have been by her mother’s side throughout the health crisis.
Madonna was set to embark on her highly anticipated Celebration Tour later this year, kicking off with a show at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada.
It’s unclear when the tour will start, if at all.
“We’ll let you know more details as soon as we have them, including a new tour start date and any shows that have been postponed,” Oseary wrote in his post.
Days before she was rushed to intensive care, Madonna shared an ominous post on social media.
The Material Girl shared a carousel of photos with her Instagram from backstage.
In several pictures, she looked somber and not smiling.
She captioned the photos, “The calm before the storm…….”
The snaps showed her getting ready for her now-postponed tour.
Madonna worked grueling 12-hour days for weeks and “rehearsed” intensely for her tour before being rushed to the hospital. page six reported.
Among the worrying photos the pop star shared was one of her sprawled on the floor.
Her eyes were closed and she put a hand on her stomach.
In another picture, the legendary musician’s eyes looked shiny and heavy while she had her hair styled.
One picture in particular caused the fans to frown.
Between sets is a snap of Madonna sitting somberly next to a piano, seemingly taking a break.
She didn’t smile as she stared into the distance.
In her hand she held a can of Red Bull with a long straw sticking out.
There is currently no further information on Madonna’s health.
