Pink opens up about her and her 3-year-old son Jameson’s health after they began “showing symptoms of COVID-19” two weeks ago.
On Saturday, the “So What” singer spoke to friend and author Jen Pastiloff on Instagram Live about her coronavirus diagnosis.
The day before, the musician revealed she tested positive for the illness but has since retested as negative. Though Jameson also recently tested negative, it is unclear if he was ever diagnosed.
During her chat with Pastiloff, Pink said she and her son “have been really, really sick,” adding that Jameson “has had the worst of it.”
“There were many nights when I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life,” she remarked. “It’s funny, but at one point, I thought they promised us our kids would be okay. It’s not guaranteed. There is no one that is safe from this.”
Though Jameson briefly joined the chat and said he is now “feeling better,” his mom says he is still not back to normal.
“Jameson has been really, really sick,” she noted. “I’ve kept a journal of his symptoms for the past three weeks and mine as well. He still, three weeks later, has a 100-degree temperature.”
The pop star — who suffers from asthma — also said she has “been on nebulizers [a device that changes medication from liquid to mist so it can be inhaled into the lungs] for the first time in 30 years and that’s been really scary for me.”
“I’m hoping we are out of the woods, but this thing is a roller coaster. Just when you think you are better, something else happens,” she added.
Despite her and her son’s illness, she confirmed that husband Carey and their 8-year-old daughter Willow “have been perfectly fine.”
In her Friday Instagram post, Pink announced she donated $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund, as well as $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia, where her mom Judy Moore worked in the cardiomyopathy and heart transplant center for 18 years.
She also expressed gratitude to the brave medical workers on the forefront of the coronavirus pandemic.
“THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes!” Pink wrote.

Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️
Wishing Pink and her son a speedy recovery!
