Sincere Show, who appeared on Season 1 of “Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood,” says he has contracted the coronavirus.
Friday on Instagram, the club promoter shared a video where he announced the news from a hospital bed.
“It took a lot for me to make this video as I am a very private person, but it is important for me to share my story,” the reality TV personality captioned the post. “Please everyone take this seriously #Covid19 #Coronavirus Protect yourself protect your family.”
In the clip, the “Welcome to the Show” rapper revealed he “wasn’t feeling my best” a week ago and “had to call the ambulance to take me to the hospital.”
“They ran all the necessary tests and everything, and I was diagnosed with COVID-19. Been in the hospital ever since,” he continued. “I know this thing is affecting everybody differently. For me, I have pneumonia in both my lungs, makes it difficult for me to breathe.”
Though he feels “a little better” since receiving care, he admits that “the scary part about this” is that “health care professionals… don’t even know what this thing is.”
“Nobody really fully understands what it is yet. It’s just a waiting game. It’s like putting a Band-Aid over a stab wound with some of the treatments,” he said. “They don’t really have the answers, man.”
Despite his current health status, Show is confident about his recovery.
“I’m gonna be all right regardless,” he assured.
On March 12, Show posted a video where he theorized that President Donald Trump is potentially using the pandemic to delay — or eliminate — the upcoming 2020 election.
“Mark my words. No election! Trump, watch! He gon’ be the President till he done. Till he die!” he exclaimed.
