T-Pain Says His Grandmother Is Battling COVID

 

T-Pain is asking his fans for thoughts and prayers for his 97-year-old grandmother who has contracted COVID-19. The ‘Buy You A Drink’ singer shared,

 

 

“Bro…… my 97 year old grandma….. is in the hospital alone… with Covid…… that she got……. FROM HER F*CKIN NURSE!!!! Man [facepalm emoji] Wtf is wrong with ppl man?! Pls yall. Just explain it to me! Just help us end this sh*t pls ppl.”

 

A fan replied to T-Pain’s initial tweet with speculation that the nurse was probably asymptomatic to which T-Pain responded saying,

 

“She was not asymptomatic. She was sent home and the hospital had to contact every patient she had come in contact with. Gma got tested when she got there and was negative. Then positive after the nurse was sent home. There’s no agenda. Ppl are a**h*les.”

 

Let’s send prayers to T-Pain and his family at this time.

The scholarship will cover four years of college tuition in full for students coming from the dramatic arts field. According to reports, the recipients will have to embody Boseman’s values which include: a drive for excellence, leadership, respect, empathy, and passion.

 

The scholarship will be awarded to a freshman each year moving forward. The President of Howard, Wayne A.I. Frederick, released a statement and expressed what the scholarship means to the HBCU’s community.
