Last year, the world was shocked to hear that Tamar Braxton suffers from vitiligo, the same skin condition as the late Michael Jackson. The mommy-to-be has  admitted that it’s a sensitive subject, but recently she’s been more and more open about her  disorder.

“Although I have NOTHING to prove….I have NOTHING to LIE about!” #donetalkingaboutthebleachB.S. #tamartheone,” she wrote on her Instagram account.

As we reported earlier, here’s what Tamar had to say about her battle with vitiligo in a recent interview.

“Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject and that’s why I’ve never shared that I have vitiligo because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo! It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does. But I’m done defending that. I’m not bleaching my skin and if I was bleaching my skin and I felt like saying so, I would, but for the record, I am not.”

We all suffer from our own individual conditions and stars get sick, too. Let’s take a look at 10 other celebs who have been open about their health issues.
