Watch: Madonna Hospitalized in the ICU With “Serious Bacterial Infection”

Madonna is continuing on her road to recovery following her health scare.

Rosie O'Donnell recently gave an update on how her longtime friend and A League of Their Own costar is doing after her hospitalization.

After sharing a photo of a TV screen showing Madonna as "All the Way" Mae Mordabito and herself as Doris Murphy in a scene from the 1992 film on her Instagram July 2, O'Donnell responded to fans who expressed concern about Madonna.

"She's good," she said. "She is recovering at home — she is very strong in general."

O'Donnell's update comes days after Madonna's longtime manager Guy Oseary in a June 28 Instagram statement that on June 24, "Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection," which led to a several days-long stay in an ICU.

"Her health is improving, however she is under medical care," he wrote. "A full recovery is expected."

The following day, a source told E! News that Madonna, 64, "is home and feeling better."

Facts About A League of Their Own That Are Truly Outta There

Prior to her hospitalization, the mother of six was preparing for her Madonna: The Celebration Tour, a tribute to her 40-year musical legacy, which was supposed to begin July 15 in Vancouver, Canada.

"At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour," Madonna's manager added in his statement. "We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows."


Several fellow celebs have expressed their support for Madonna publicly in wake of her health scare. "Sending prayers and support," Rosie Perez commented on Oseary's post, while Evan Rachel Wood, who played the "Vogue" singer in the 2022 movie Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, posted three red heart emojis.
