Cardi B has clarified her recent hospitalization had nothing to do with the current coronavirus outbreak.
The rapper took to Instagram Live to clear up the rumors after she shared a photo of her with an identity band from a hospital. “I’ve been very f***ing sick these past five days–not corona,” she said Thursday (April 2). “I have really bad stomach issues. I started throwing up; I took a pregnancy test cuz a b***h never f***ing knows.”
As she tried to find out what was wrong, fans went into a frenzy with claims of coronavirus. “I threw up seven times,” she said. “I didn’t want to go to the hospital, I went to the hospital. I was sick and [press] ran with it, then my publicist hit me up and it ain’t nothing coronavirus-related, thank God!”
The possible stomachache may be connected to the singer’s first world problems of finding a perfect chef. “I don’t have nobody to cook for me. I hired a chef two times and they were nasty and expensive,” she said.
In lighter news, the rapper confirmed proceeds of her viral “Coronavirus” track will benefit those in need during the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Yes! That’s what [we’re] going to do!” Cardi B tweeted last week. “Keep in mind you don’t get your money right away…but even months from now there would be families with financial issues for getting laid off due to the virus. We will donate!”
