*Earlier this year, Freddie Jackson finally spoke out about concert performance that went viral because it had many fans concerned about his health.

Jackson had some things to say after he read online the reactions about his seemingly ailing health and frail body.

In case you missed what had fans worried, here’s a quick recap:

In late December 2017, video surfaced of Freddie in concert and he appeared to have lost a ghastly amount of weight and his singing voice instead extremely weak. ILOSM reported that “at times throughout his performance of “Rock With Me Tonight,” Jackson couldn’t even muster up the wind to hit many of the notes at all. Although Freddie still remained in good spirits throughout the performance, he was clearly being weighed down by something.”

After the video circulated across social media, many fans have been sending up prayers, well wishes and also expressing concern about the R&B legend’s overall health. 

Read some of their comments below.

Freddy eventually addressed the rumors and speculations on Instagram, writing:

“To my fans, friends, family; I want to start off by saying that I love you and thank you for your support. I wouldn’t have the opportunities that I have in life, be who I am, or touch the lives I have with music, without your love and support. It breaks my heart to receive calls regarding the nasty and untrue rumors propagating around the internet about my well being. As I’ve grown older, I’ve grown wiser and nearly 15 years ago i decided to get healthy (and yes, I’ve been thin for a while! Not my fault if you’re late to the party). With God’s help I’m working on bettering myself each and every day. During my career I have seen the highest highs you can imagine, but also the lowest of lows like these rumors. I am still here, still loving, performing, and creating. With a new year comes a new start and chance to be better, so let’s take the journey together. Blessings, FJ”
