August Alsina Breaks His Silence About His Battle With Liver Disease
August Alsina Opens Up To His Fans About His Liver Disease
Only a couple of weeks after announcing his forthcoming tour, singer, August Alsina has revealed that he’s been battling a liver disease. The 24-year-old recently sat down in a one-on-one interview with his close friend, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and opened up about the personal struggles of his past and current health complications. Alsina took to his Instagram to share the news with his fans, posting a video clip from the sit-down. In the caption, he stated that ‘he’s sicker than ever and having a hard time accepting his illness’. The news comes shortly after the controversial post he made almost a week ago on the social site, leaving fans to speculate and question.
I’ve been living my life in so much dis-ease that I’ve literally created it within myself… God has invested something inside of me, But I am not afraid of this Agony because I know that God pulls us back to shoot us FORWARD. ???? & To my lovely and loyal fans.. Please take care of yourself and your bodies & your SOULS. A beautiful face will fade, a beautiful body will too fade, but a beautiful soul is that FOREVER. I have so much to share, until I do.. Please say a prayer ???????? -AA
Now, Alsina has decided to set the record straight, once and for all.
“I have a liver disease, where my autoimmune system is fighting against itself. The reality is that I’m sick all the time. I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy.” Alsina says in the clip.
Please excuse my defense mechanism in this clip.. I’m sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with my fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family. My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. ???????? but they were FIGHTERS & that’s all that matters. ????????✨✨✨ Just ride with me is all I ask.
The New Orleans native experienced a health scare back in 2014 when he collapsed on stage at one of his concerts in New York. In result, Alsina stayed in a coma for three days. A year after recovering from that, he then discovered that his eyesight was deteriorating and had to undergo surgery.
Though Alsina seems to be having a tough time right now, he asks to be continuously lifted in prayer. He is currently prepping for tour and says that he’s spending time building his health.
“I am ALL things thru GOD who strengthens me. I only want to be more love & I want the vibration of my music to represent the same thing thru all the loving experiences I am having.” The singer expresses.
God only gives the toughest battles to the strongest soldiers. We send many get well soon wishes to Mr. August Alsina.
