Missy Elliott, 51, has had her fair share of health struggles at the peak of her career, due to which she even took a break from creating music. In 2011, Elliott shared that ‘her absence from the music industry was due to a hyperthyroidism disorder known as Graves disease.’
The talented rapper was diagnosed after she nearly crashed a car from having severe spasms in her legs while driving. Her condition aggravated over time to the point when she was unable to hold a pen to write songs.
