The famed singer has long been open about their health struggles, many of which have come about since the birth of their child, Ender, last year.

On a post at the beginning of April, Halsey shared a carousel of photos with the caption, “The last time I attended the Grammys was 2017 and it was 3 days after I had my first Endometriosis surgery. I walked the carpet with my stitches still in 😅 As luck would have it, I’m attending tomorrow for the first time in years and I had surgery again (you guessed it) 3 days ago. Only posting this to say, if you see me be gentle lol I’m fragile. Fragile but excited 🙂 🤍”

“I was hospitalized for anaphylaxis a few times,” the singer shared to their Instagram Story earlier this month. “After seeing, like, 100,000 doctors, I got diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Sjögren’s syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome, POTS, and I’m still looking for answers to the root cause of some of these things that could potentially be another type of autoimmune disease.”

Halsey appeared to have had enough with the comments on their health that have been circulating recently, and posted a video to TikTok along with the song “I Already Know” by Walworth & Howell with the caption, “‘u look sick’ BC I AM! LET ME LIVE!”
