August Alsina is ‘sicker than ever’ with liver disease

R&B star August Alsina has asked fans for their continued support as he battles severe illness, confessing he’s “sicker than ever”.
The No Love singer has struggled through a number of ailments in recent years, after collapsing onstage in 2014, when he spent three days in a coma.
Over America’s Memorial Day weekend (27-29May17), Alsina suggested he had fallen ill once again as he took to social media and referenced the “dis-ease” in his life, admitting he was in “agony” as he called on fans to “please say a prayer”.
He has since shed a little more light on his health problems in a pair of Instagram posts on Tuesday (30May17), when he shared a video clip of what appeared to be an upcoming documentary, in which he is interviewed by his longtime friend, Jada Pinkett Smith.
“Sat down with my favorite person on planet earth to have one of the most HEALING conversations,” he wrote. “I hope it’s as healing for you as it was for us. I pray that you not only hear me but you FEEL me. This shall soon come.”
Alsina, 24, then added a snippet from the chat, in which he shared: “I have a liver disease, where my autoimmune system is fighting against itself. The reality is that I’m sick all the time. I don’t really like to talk about it ’cause I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy, like I’m a f**king cancer patient, ’cause I’m not.”
The singer didn’t name the illness he had been diagnosed with, but the video footage was captioned, “I’m sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with (my) fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family (sic).
“My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. but they were FIGHTERS & that’s all that matters. Just ride with me (stand by me) is all I ask.”
