Kelly Price Reveals She Actually Died At One Point While Recovering From COVID As She Addresses Missing Persons Report + Da Brat Accuses Nicci Gilbert Of Discussing The Situation For Publicity
Kelly Price is sharing her truth regarding the recent speculation over her wellbeing!
Yesterday (Sunday, Sept. 26th), Kelly Price notably broke her silence on a recent missing person report about her. As previously reported, Kelly Price, 48, was pronounced missing after authorities conducted a welfare check on her home last Saturday (Sept. 18th). However, her attorney–Monica Ewing–eventually claimed the singer was not missing and was instead privately recovering from COVID-19. Despite this, Kelly Price‘s sister later stated that the family had not seen the singer in months, claiming:
“Until we physically see my sister, then we don’t know [if she’s okay].”

Now, Kelly Price is sharing her side of the matter. She revealed yesterday (Sunday, Sept. 26):
“At some point, they lost me. I woke up a couple of days later, and the first thing I remember is the team of doctors standing around me and asking me if I knew what year it was… I died. I remember waking up in ICU and the doctor asking me if I knew what year it was. Going into the hospital, I had actually had COVID for over a week–but my conditions were progressing in the wrong direction from home. I had it, [but] my husband did not have it. He was taking care of me at home–speaking with my primary care physician, giving me breathing treatments, giving me my medicine every four hours. And eventually he ended up testing positive within a week after I got it and just prior to me going to the hospital. [My doctor] could see, she was seeing me every day on FaceTime and walking him through administering meds. And when it got to a point, my temperature had raised to about 103 and my breathing was extremely shallow. So he called the ambulance and I had to go to the hospital.”
Kelly Price continued:
“I was discharged, the hospital needed beds. I was able to go home with oxygen and have home health aides come check on me throughout the week–which is what happened for the period of four weeks after being released from the hospital. So, people were definitely seeing me–the people that could actually say something are not allowed to because of HIPAA law. But I was being seen several times a week by home health aides after being released on oxygen. And I actually just got my first clean COVID test probably exactly a week ago. So I have what is called ‘Long COVID,’ and I am facing a very uphill battle right now.”
“I suffered a lot of internal damage, so I have a lot of rehabbing to do before I am able to be what I’d like to call ‘concert ready’ again. Following the year I’ve had losing so many people–I’d just lost my grandmother before I was diagnosed–I feel like the only way I can focus on me is to actually focus on me. There were actually people–I don’t know, fans or whoever they were–coming to my house. People ringing the bell, leaving things at my doorstep, disturbing my neighbors all times of the day and night. And this wasn’t months ago–I literally just left my house maybe a week ago because I couldn’t rest there… I turned off everything. I wasn’t on social media.”
Kelly then proceeded to speak on her sister’s statements, revealing that they are estranged and regularly go long periods without speaking:
“It hasn’t been two months since I’ve seen my sister–it’s been a year. I haven’t been in the same room with her since my mother’s funeral. Prior to that, we hadn’t seen each other all pandemic long. That’s not new for us–it’s not new for us. We’ve been strained for a very long time. I was never missing. I was in my home, I was being seen by doctors. First and foremost, [my husband and I] both had COVID–there was no visiting. There was no visiting the house [because] we both had active COVID cases. Everyone in my family knew exactly where I was, and I have to say that it’s really disappointing that things came to this… I have never been in danger, I am not in danger right now. I am focusing on putting myself first.”
It’s also worth noting that Nicci Gilbert and Da Brat addressed the situation online. It began when Nicci Gilbert uploaded a video giving an update about Kelly Price‘s situation, saying:
“I have spoken with Kelly Price. She called me last night, we had a very extensive conversation… Kelly is fine. She’s not on a ventilator, she’s not a hostage. She is healing from COVID.”
Nicci Gilbert also proceeded to say she would be discussing what she learned from the matter on her show, and she promoted it within her message.

Da Brat took issue with how Nicci Gilbert approached the situation. On Instagram Live, she appeared to slam Nicci for putting Kelly Price‘s business on blast to promote her show. While she didn’t mention Nicci Gilbert by name, Da Brat explicitly spoke on how no one close to Kelly Price should have put her business out there without permission.

She then issued a follow-up video on the situation, seemingly blasting Nicci Gilbert by saying:
“I was upset because you talking about Kelly to promote yo s**t. You telling Kelly’s personal business.”
