Styles P believes that he had Coronavirus prior to the pandemic taking place at the moment.

In several tweets posted to social media, the 45-year-old recalled feeling under the weather back in January of 2019. “I almost died in January,” Styles P wrote. “And I never get the flu and if I do it’s a day or two. In January I was down for a week and lost about 8 pounds !! I had the rona !! It had to be the Rona !!!! ‍I did mad black seed oil and went on a juice / tea diet and rested ! Go for it!”

He also encouraged his fans to stay safe and to practice precautionary measures. “Most of us will get or have had the virus ! A lot of people were sick during dec and January before they even announced the virus. I’m no doctor but stay away from people and do things to boost your immune system and rest up. And spread the word,” he added.

Styles P isn’t the first celebrity to make a confession of this sort. Earlier this month, Meek Mill shared a similar sentiment about feeling sick last year.

“I was extremely sick in December around Christmas time with flu like symptoms. Every day I said to myself a older person cannot survive this!” Mill wrote. “I lost like 15 pounds and could barely move! I never been that sick. A doctor never told me what it was,” he posted to Twitter.

At the moment, many across the country are practicing social distancing and taking precautionary measures in hopes of not contracting the virus. As a result, many events have been postponed. Although it is a troubling time, celebrities are doing their best to lift fans’ spirits, which includes hosting at-home live streamed concerts.
