Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of genetic diseases characterized by connective tissue dysfunction (supportive tissue), which is present in all parts of the body, such as skin, muscles and ligaments.
Dubbed the "chewing gum disease", this syndrome, which affects collagen production, affects about one in 5,000 people and causes joint hyperlasticity, hyperelasticity of the skin, premature aging following exposure to the sun, or osteoporosis.
The 43-year-old artist did not specify what symptoms she suffered.
