R&B singer Jeremih is in intensive care with the coronavirus, according to reports.
The artist, 33, has reportedly received a “bleak” prognosis and is on a ventilator, reports TMZ.
The outlet reports that Jeremih is on a breathing ventilator within the ICU he’s being treated at, and “his condition has recently gotten worse”.
It’s not clear when the Paradise singer caught COVID-19, or when he entered hospital.
Frequent collaborator Chance The Rapper asked for prayers for Jeremih, whose real name is Jeremy Phillip Felton.
“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,” the Chicago-based artist tweeted. “I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.”
50 Cent, who has also worked with Jeremih, tweeted out pleas as well.
“Pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this covid sh*t is real,” he wrote, with a photo of the two of them together and a prayer hands emoji. “He’s in ICU in Chicago,” he confirmed on Instagram.
“Prayers up, praying for your strength @Jeremih,” tweeted Big Sean.
Rapper Wale also chimed in, posting, “Praying for my dawg @Jeremih.”
On November 6, DJ Benny Benassi released a song with Jeremih called Lovelife.
Jeremih’s health battle comes as the coronavirus death toll in the US tops 250,000 lives lost, with more than 11 million people in America contracting the virus since the start of the pandemic.
