In an interview with People, Elliott revealed that she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder, which affects the thyroid, in 2008. “You live with it for the rest of your life,” she told the magazine. Following the article’s release, Elliott thanked her fans on Twitter for their support, saying, “Thank yall for the love yall have shown me! *TearsofJoy* I love yall so much!” Fans are using the hashtag #prayFOR missy to send well-wishes.

The Grammy-winner, who hasn’t released an album since 2005, said she was treated with radiation and medication. “My thyroid is functioning, so I haven't had to take medication in about nine months,” she said.

Elliott’s new album, “Block Party,” is expected this year. A “Behind the Music” episode about the musician will air on VH1 next Wednesday.
