Jeremih’s Rep Gives Update on Singer’s COVID-19 Battle

A representative for Jeremih has given an update on the singer amid his COVID-19 battle.

On Thursday, the musician’s agent told Variety that his client “was just pulled off the ventilator” but is “still in ICU in critical condition.”

“Please keep him in your prayers,” the agent added.

In another statement obtained by Deadline on Thursday, a representative said, “The COVID-19 condition he’s experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions.”

“There’s no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others,” the statement continued. “Everyone diagnosed with COVID-19 is affected differently. Unfortunately for Jeremih, COVID-19 viciously attacked his body.”

Over the weekend, a number of Jeremih’s friends and collaborators, including Chance the Rapper and 50 Cent, asked fans to pray for the 33-year-old.

“Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih, he is like a brother to me and he’s ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him,” Chance wrote on Saturday.

“Pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid ---- is real,” 50 added that day.

On Sunday, 50 tweeted that Jeremih reportedly “is responsive today, doing a little better.”

Jeremih's most recent project was an 11-track album with Ty Dolla Sign, titled “MihTy,” released August 2018.

Sending prayers and well-wishes to Jeremih during this difficult time.
