Def Jam-signed singer and rapper Jeremih has been hospitalised after contracting coronavirus, reports say.
As TMZ reports, Jeremih is currently in an Intensive Care Unit on a breathing ventilator, though it’s not clear how long he’s been in hospital.
Chance the Rapper, who collaborated with Jeremih on a 2014 song and shared a surprise mixtape with him two years later, is among those sending well-wishes to the singer on social media following the news.
“Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih,” Chance tweeted. “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.”
