Singer August Alsina Reveals He Is Battling Serious Illness

This is so scary for him!

Alsina, 24, gave an interview with actress Jada Pinkett-Smith and discussed his attitude about his illness. He is apparently battling an unnamed autoimmune disease that is impacting his liver.

“The reality is that I’m sick all the time,” he told the actress. “I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy. Don’t treat me like I’m a f–king cancer patient, because I’m not.”

If you all remembers, Alsina collapsed onstage in 2014 and was in a coma for several days.

“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,” Alsina, who won Best New Artist at the 2014 BET Awards, wrote on Instagram.

“After sitting down and talking with my father’s 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.”

We hope he pulls through and overcomes this!
