According to the publication’s sources, the singer was eating when her heart suddenly started beating abnormally fast.
After alerting her friends to the problem, she reportedly passed out. A source said she had been “unconscious for a while”.
Although it’s recommended to call 911 immediately in the event of a medical emergency, the sources claimed Tori’s friends feared she wouldn’t receive proper care at a local downtown LA hospital.
Tori is reportedly currently being treated in the hospital’s intensive care unit, where doctors have discovered blood clots in her legs and lungs.
She has reportedly been conscious intermittently during her current hospitalization, but her condition and prognosis are unclear.
Instead, they reportedly carried her to a car and sped to the more prestigious Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
While blood clots are necessary for the body to stop and heal bleeding, they can also block normal blood flow, a condition called thrombosis.

Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot occurs in one of the body’s deep veins, the study said Mayo Clinic.
However, the clots can then travel to other organs and cause more serious problems there.
A pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot travels to the lungs and gets stuck there, blocking much-needed blood flow to the organ.
Numerous fans posted their support for the Nobody Love singer on social media on Monday despite her illness.
“My thoughts are with Tori Kelly and her family. I hope she’s okay,” said one user, while another added, “I really hope Tori Kelly makes a full recovery soon. She’s so talented, sweet and unproblematic, she doesn’t deserve it.”
Another fan said: “I’m praying for Tori Kelly because this is one of the scariest things that can happen to anyone 🙁 ‘
