*Famed rapper Scarface, a member of the Houston-based hip hop group Geto Boys, is the latest celebrity to test positive for the novel coronavirus.

The hip-hop star revealed his diagnosis on Thursday (March 26) during a livestream with his bandmate Willie D.

He explained that he had been sick for weeks, and officially received his results Wednesday night.

“It started off with pneumonia in both of my lungs and three or four days later my kidneys failed. I’ve been to the point where I felt I was gonna die,” he said, Entertainment Tonight reports. 

Scarface, (born Brad Terrence Jordan), has a pre-existing asthma condition, which put him at greater risk of contracting and dying from the virus. He said his respiratory issues were exacerbated by the illness and it felt like “an elephant sitting on my chest.”

“I don’t see how nobody can even want to play them games,” he said of people refusing to self-isolate. “I don’t want to have fun that bad, where it could take my life.”

The Houston native went on to urge viewers to take the virus seriously. “It’s not fake. I’m not all the way out the woods yet.”

Scarface’s diagnosis comes after Idris Elba, Andy Cohen, Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, as well as Prince Charles and Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert all revealed on social media that they have been diagnosed with the disease.

Rapper Slim Thug  shared on March 24 that he tested positive for coronavirus. He explained in an Instagram video that he had a fever and a cough but is feeling better amid self-isolation.

“The other day, I got tested for the coronavirus, yesterday, and it came back positive,” he said. “As careful as I’ve been, self-quarantine and staying home, I might of did, went got something to eat or did some stuff, simple stuff, nothing crazy. Stayed in my truck, had mask, gloves, everything, and my test came back positive.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also tested positive for the new coronavirus, becoming the first world leader to confirm a diagnosis.

“I’ve developed mild symptoms of the coronavirus. That’s to say, a temperature and a persistent cough. And on the advice of the chief medical officer, I’ve taken a test that has come out positive. So I am working from home, I’m self isolating, and that’s entirely the right thing to do,” he said in a video message posted to his official Twitter account.

Kenya Moore’s Date with Kanye West That Went Left: ‘That Was A Disaster!’ / VIDEO

Published

Kenya Moore - Kanye West - Wendy Williams

*If you missed it, earlier this week Kenya Moore was on the “Wendy Williams Show” in the “Hot Seat” Where she revealed an interesting story about what went down after a date with Kanye West.

“I did go out with Kanye once,” Moore told Wendy. “That was a disaster.”

If you’re thinking, “What kind of disaster?” … you’re not alone. She explained that after the date, they went to West’s home, which is when things got well … interesting.

“Somehow we ended up going to his house and there were some very explicit things on TV,” she added. “I was lost. He left me alone wandering around his house and then when I followed the noises, he was watching something on TV that he probably shouldn’t have been.”

Apparently, that was all Miss Kenya needed to see ’cause she said it was time to go ghost.

“So that was my exit,” Moore recalled. “As much as I love him, that was just the craziest thing.”

Wendy’s show is not the only place she’s shared her experience with the rapper. Check out what the “RHOA” star told Access Hollywood in 2013.

“He was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy. It was just friendly, ‘Hey, I want you to hear some music.’ It was all above board. I’m very happy that he’s found love and that (he) and Kim [Kardashian] are having a good relationship.”

Kanye’s actions towards Kenya do seem strange given her attractiveness. So you have to ask what would make him basically end the date without telling her and go watch porn … by himself with her in another room. Is it just him? Hmmm …

In any event, if you’ve followed Kanye West you know he’s admitted to dealing with porn addiction in the past, so hearing of this incident is not all that surprising.

Meanwhile, the rapper, who recently received a Gospel Grammy nomination, has not responded to Moore’s recollection of their date.

*Fredro Starr is on the record saying that an ONYX vs. M.O.P would be the bomb-diggety!

“I think that would be perfect, ONYX and M.O.P. I’m cool with Fame and Billy that’s our peoples. I wanted to do a Verzuz against M.O.P. because they came out when we came out. They represent Brooklyn we represent Queens but we had that same energy almost. That early 90s, rough, unfiltered, no f*ckin gold chains on, straight hardcore. It would be a good Verzuz battle, it would be crazy!

Should be other platforms, Verzuz can only do so much, not sure if Timbaland would want a battle with ONYX & M.O.P

“Verzuz can only do but so much and if they are selecting everything, Then there are other artists I’m sure that wanna do it. I think there should be more platforms to do that besides Verzuz. I think there should be other platforms so hopefully, somebody will jump to it and we get to do that battle. I don’t think Swizz (Beats) and Timbaland are gonna Ok that one. I know Swizz is a big fan of ONYX but I never met Timbaland so I don’t know.”

Dr. Dre and daighter LaTanya


*Dr Dre’s eldest daughter LaTanya Young has revealed that she has not seen her superstar rapper father in 17 years.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV Young, 37, said she wants a relationship with her Dre, and she makes clear that she is not after his riches. The hip-hop icon is allegedly worth about $800 million.

“Money is not what I want, I feel better doing it on my own,” she told Daily Mail TV. 

“I really just want to have closure. I just want to be able to spend time with my father.”

The mom-of-four reportedly told the publication that Dre has never even met her children.

According to Young, she was forced to go through her father’s staff to communicate with him as a child.

“I hated going through third parties. If I needed him, I’d have to go to the studio and get bombarded and talked to by his security,” she said. “I would have to go through his accountant or his right hand man, I would never know whether he got my messages. I have never had a direct line to him.”

Dre split with LaTanya’s mother, Lisa Johnson, when she was five years old. The couple had three children together: LaTanya, LaToya, 36, and Ashley, 35.

In 1996 he married Nicole Young and they are currently embattled in a bitter divorce.

Nicole filed documents to end her marriage back in June, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. 

She and Dre have two adult children. Dre also has four children from previous relationships.

“I thought that my dad would come around. I would like him to make me feel like a daughter,” LaTanya added.
