Madonna is now at home after a stay in intensive care due to a serious bacterial infection.
In news that will come as a relief to fans, it’s understood that the Material Girl hitmaker, 64, is ‘feeling better’.
She was taken back to her New York home in a private ambulance, according to reports.
A source told CNN: ‘She’s in the clear.’
The US star’s hospitalisation was announced on Wednesday (June 28) as a statement confirmed that her 40th-anniversary tour was also being paused.
She had initially been found unresponsive and she was rushed to hospital for treatment.
It’s thought that her daughter Lourdes Leon, 26, has been by her side throughout the ordeal.
However, her family are thought to have been fearing ‘the worst’.
A family friend of the global superstar revealed how her relatives ‘prepared for the worst’ following the horrific ordeal as ‘everybody believed that they may lose her.’
‘For the past couple of days, no one really knew which direction this was going to turn, and her family was preparing for the worst,’ they shared.
‘That is why it was kept a secret since Saturday. Everyone believed that we may lose her, and that has been the reality of the situation,’ they added to Mail Online.
Her manager initially said in a social media message: ‘On Saturday, June 24, Madonna developed a serious bacterial infection which lead to a several-day stay in the ICU.
‘Her health is improving, however, she is still under medical care. A full recovery is expected.
‘At this time we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour.
‘We will share more details with you soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and for rescheduled shows.’
It comes after the Vogue singer was rehearsing for up to 12 hours a day ahead of her hotly-anticipated Celebration Tour.
She was in intense rehearsals at Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum and a source said the Queen of Pop was putting everything into perfecting the greatest hits set.
‘She had been putting in 12-hour days. She was strenuously rehearsing and putting in the work,’ an insider told Page Six.
Her tour was set to start on Saturday, July 15, visiting arenas across America before coming to Europe and the UK later this year.
