Kelly Price has revealed she woke from the dead during her Covid-19 battle, as she broke her silence following reports she was missing.
Price debunked the reports she was missing.
‘I was never missing. I was in my home, I was being seen by doctors. Everyone in my family knew exactly where I was”, she told the celebrity news platform TMZ.
‘I have never been in danger, I am not in danger right now.’
Police claimed that her boyfriend was keeping visitors away from her home, after performed a welfare check on her.
She now explained that she and her husband had Covid-19 and so were not permitting visitors at their home.
The star was admitted to hospital in August for Covid, and shared how serious her case was, revealing that at one point, she flatlined in the ICU.
“At some point, they lost me. I woke up some days later and the first thing I remember was the team of doctors standing around me and asking if I knew what year it was. I died. I remember waking up in ICU.’
The singer is now being visited several times a week by home help aids as she deals with the effects of long Covid-19.
‘I am facing a very uphill battle right now. I have a lot of rehabbing to do before I am able to be what I like to call concert ready again. I suffered a lot of internal damage.’
Price thanked fans for their concern on Instagram, writing: ‘Thank you for your love, concern and prayers. I truly appreciate them and all of you who sincerely did them. They are not lost on me. I promise.
‘I’m going back into solace and silence where I can put first things first and that is to be restored to be healthy and to be whole.’
She also spoke on the rift with her sister.
