As Madonna continues to recover from his recent hospitalization, his famous friends are in his corner.
“She feels good” Rosie O’Donnell – who co-starred with the 64-year-old Queen of Pop in A league apart — captioned a Thursday, June 29, Instagram photo of the two friends. O’Donnell, 61, added a thumbs-up emoji and a “Love” hashtag to his post.
The comedian’s update came shortly after We Weekly confirmed Madonna was hospitalized over the weekend.
“On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which led to a several-day stay in intensive care,” the singer’s longtime manager said. Guy Osary, wrote in an Instagram statement on Wednesday, June 28. “Her health is improving, however, she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.
Oseary noted that Madonna will “suspend all engagements” while she is on the mend, including her upcoming Madonna: the celebration tour, which was scheduled to begin on Saturday, July 15.
Amid news of her hospitalization, several celebrity fans of the “Like a Prayer” singer offered their hopes for a speedy recovery, including Zooey Deschanel, Rita Wilson, Gwendoline Christie And fisherman’s island. “I send him so much love from us. ❤️❤️❤️“Fisher, 47, commented on Oseary’s post, apparently referring to her and her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen.
Kathy Griffinfor her part, offered her support while calling out haters online who made fun of Madonna’s illness.
“I don’t know what’s going on with Madonna. I don’t know, but I love her and I want to defend her,” Griffin, 62, said in a TikTok video on Wednesday. I’ve seen her live, of course, because I’m a gay man, and I think she’s provided the world with decades of music and entertainment, Avoided, [and] cinematic representations. I don’t like the way people are already piling up and kind of making fun of her being, obviously, pretty sick or collapsed [and saying], ‘She’ll be fine.’ We don’t know anything yet.
The Emmy winner wanted to be “honest” with her followers, noting that she believed such comments could be attributed to ageism and misogyny in Hollywood. “Sorry, but as a 62-year-old chick, I deal with it all the time — and it freaks Madonna out,” Griffin — who announced her lung cancer diagnosis in 2021 — said. “So I don’t care about her fillers, they’ll go away whether she feels like it or not, I care about her health. I’m glad she can come back on this tour, and the tour is the greatest hits and it should be awesome.
We confirmed on Wednesday evening that Madonna had been moved out of intensive care as she continued to recover.
