Duffy took home the best pop vocal award at the 2009 Grammys for her breakthrough album, “Rockferry.” That same year, she was also nominated for best new artist.

In 2010, she released another album, “Endlessly,” after which she largely retreated from the music scene.

The Welsh artist said that in the coming weeks she’ll post a spoken interview in which she will also address fan questions.

A rep for Duffy declined to comment when contacted by CNN about her post.

She closed by saying, “Please respect this is a gentle move for me to make, for myself, and I do not want any intrusion to my family. Please support me to make this a positive experience.”

On social media, people commended the singer for her bravery.

“Wow, your strength is truly inspiring,” one user wrote on Instagram.

“Your music is a reflection of your heart and who you are, beautiful and strong. I pray and hope for a real and long lasting healing,” another fan wrote. “We are with you dear, precious @duffy you are incredible and very missed. Fight this thing, don’t let it define you or determine your life.”
