Singer-rapper Jeremih hospitalized with coronavirus is in ICU in critical condition
The 33-year-old musician’s agent told Variety on Thursday that he’s “still in critical condition” while receiving treatment for COVID-19. However, the star “was just pulled off the ventilator,” according to his agent.
“Please keep him in your prayers,” the agent said.
Born Jeremy Phillip Felton, the musician has reportedly been receiving treatment privately in Chicago, though his battle with the virus had been mentioned multiple times on social media by fellow rapper 50 Cent in the last several days.

“Pray for my boy Jeremih he’s not doing good this [COVID-19] s–t is real,” 50 Cent, real name Curtis James Jackson, wrote on Saturday.
The following day, he said things appeared to be improving.
“Thank you for praying for my boy Jeremih he is responsive today, doing a little better,” the rapper wrote.
Jeremih and 50 collaborated on “Down On Me.”
Several other stars from the hip-hop community also wished their colleague well on social media.
Big Sean wrote, “Prayers up, praying for your strength @Jeremih,” while Chance the Rapper said, “Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih, he is like a brother to me and he’s ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him.”
