Trey Songz has contracted the coronavirus.
On Monday, the “Bottoms Up” singer revealed his diagnosis in a candid video posted to his Instagram page.
“Here with a very important message to let you know that I tested positive for COVID-19,” the musician said in the clip. “I’ve taken many tests, as I’ve been out protesting, food drives. Of course, I have a very young son [Noah] at home, so I get tested periodically and this time unfortunately it came back positive.
“I will be taking it seriously, I will be self-quarantining,” he added. “I will be in my house until I see a negative sign.”
The 35-year-old also revealed that his grandfather passed away earlier this year from what he believes were complications due to COVID-19.
“I’ve always taken it serious. If you come in contact with COVID, please do the same. Please do the same. Don’t be like the president,” he said, concluding, “Much love and peace, y’all. I thank you in advance for your support [and] your love.”
Per The New York Times, as of October 6 at 4:11 p.m. EST, more than 7,517,200 people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus and at least 210,400 have died due to COVID-19 complications.
In April, Trey revealed the mother of his son on Instagram shortly after Noah’s first birthday.
“I’m obsessed; we did that, YOU did that! You’re a great Mother and you deal with all the extra’s very gracefully. I’ll always be eternally grateful to you Noah’s Mumma,” he wrote.
Though he only referred to her as “Noah’s Mumma,” various blogs have reported the woman to be Caro Colon.
Noah was born on April 20, 2019, and Trey announced his birth the next month.
