Singer Toni Braxton has tumor removed. Toni Braxton has a good excuse for not making the finale of “Dancing With the Stars” last month. The 41-year-old singer says she had a benign tumor removed from her breast the week before. Braxton says she knew about the tumor before she appeared on the ABC show. She scheduled the surgery after being eliminated from the competition on Oct. 20, she told the magazine US Weekly. “Getting the boot on the show was actually a blessing in disguise for me,” she said in the issue being released on Friday. “My grandmother on my dad’s side died of breast cancer, and I have aunts on both sides that have breast cancer.” Though Braxton is still recovering, she is scheduled to appear on the “Dancing With the Stars” tour, which begins Dec. 17 in San Diego, reports The Associated Press
