Unrelated to Rico, Gina owes all her “dramatic flair” and her confidence to her mom. Gina told Hello Magazine in an interview, “The consistent memory I have of my mother is always supporting me, always being there for me, always telling me I was capable of anything and everything. That I was beautiful just the way I was. That I can continue to open doors by being a sound character versus anything else.”

7. Bella Thorne

Just a few months ago, Bella publicly revealed that she was sexually abused growing up and her mom said she found out at the same time. Devastated, Tamara said that they’ll both be in therapy.

A Growing Number Of Celebs Have Tested Positive For Covid-19, Reminding Us All We’re Still In The Middle Of A Pandemic

As beaches, restaurants, and even bars and clubs started to reopen, it was easy to forget that we are still in the midst of a global health crisis – one that continues to hit the Latino community, in particular, very hard. And stars, they really are just like us. Celebrities are also at risk of contracting Covid-19 and over the last few days we’ve learned that several of Latin music’s biggest stars have in fact been infected with the virus.

The news comes just as states like Florida, California, Arizona, and Texas set new records with sky high infection rates. It’s an important reminder that nobody is immune to this pandemic and that we all need to do our part to keep our communities safe.

Several major Latin music stars have recently announced they’ve tested positive for Covid-19.

As if a reminder that stars, they’re just like us, several of Latin music’s biggest celebrities have announced that they’ve tested positive for Covid-19. Karol G, Prince Royce, and Chiquita Rivera have all shared their positive diagnosis for the virus and are urging fans to stay home and use masks when they have to go out.

Karol G took to Instagram Live to share the news of her infection with her fans.

During an Instagram live watched by more than 100,000, the “Tusa” singer said that she tested positive two or three weeks ago but had not made it public so her parents wouldn’t worry. “First of all, thank you to all the people that have reached out to me. I hadn’t said anything because my parents are far away and I didn’t want them to worry about me,” she says.

“Because my new single was coming out, I didn’t want coronavirus to be the news. Now that the news is out, my parents are very nervous and if it was under any other circumstance, they’d be here by my side.”

Karol G went on to say that she is feeling well compared to others who have been diagnosed positive. She was diagnosed with COVID-19 a few weeks ago with her friend and sister, and decided to isolate away from Anuel, who she confirmed tested negative. “I feel well. Today, I got another test and hoping this one will be negative.”

Chiquita Rivera also announced that her and her husband have also tested positive for the virus.

Just last week, Mexican-American singer Chiquis Rivera, the daughter of the late Jenni Rivera, revealed she and her husband Lorenzo Méndez tested positive for COVID-19. Also in an Instagram video, Rivera said “We’re contagious so we have to be responsible and we are going to quarantine.”

And Dominican Prince Royce announced he too had contracted Covid-19.

Prince Royce was one of the first celebrities to reveal his diagnosis. he shared he had tested positive for the virus shortly before the 4th of July holiday weekend and urged people to take precautions and be safe – for themselves and others.

In an Instagram video, he shared that he had gone out to restaurants since things had started to open up. He added: “Well, Florida hasn’t been so bad, and New York is the one with the problem. I fell for that and I think many people can fall for that and will fall for that. Don’t be selfish and make the same mistakes that I probably did.”

He urged his fans to do the responsible thing and stay at home.

“I was diagnosed with COVID-19 and I am on day number 12 since my symptoms began,” he wrote on Instagram. “My case has been mild and I am feeling well. I share this with you today to ask you please not let down your guard — this virus is very real and we can have it and spread it without even knowing. I didn’t think I had it as I didn’t feel that bad and had I not gotten tested I would be spreading it to others.”

His caption also added, “For younger people, this is more than just about taking care of ourselves, it is about taking care of others, older people and those with compromised immune systems. Please let’s take this seriously and act responsibly and with compassion. Let’s all take care of each other.”

Their infections come as the virus is raging out of control across the country.

New records are being set everyday across the United States, as severe all states see the virus rage out of control. For the first time ever in the U.S., Florida saw more than 15,000 new cases in just one day. Meanwhile, in Arizona – the per capita infection rate is higher than it was at the peak of New York’s battle against the virus.

As of July 15, the U.S. has 3.48 million confirmed cases and almost 140,000 deaths due to Covid-19 infection. Those numbers are expected to continue to climb as many Americans refuse to follow simple preventive measures, including wearing a mask and staying at home.

Fans Are Worried After Bad Bunny Was Rushed To Hospital For Emergency Surgery

Fans Are Worried After Bad Bunny Was Rushed To Hospital For Emergency Surgery

The year 2020 just won’t stop. Now it’s trying to come for San Benito – and his stans aren’t having any of it. In the same week that we find out Naya Rivera went missing (her remains have since been recovered) and a once cherished brand, Goya Foods, is now under a full scale boycott for heaping praise on Donald Trump, we find out that Bad Bunny went into emergency surgery over the weekend.

Over the weekend, Bad Bunny was rushed into the hospital for emergency surgery.

According to El Heraldo de México, the El Conejo Malo was hospitalized on Friday for an emergency operation due to severe appendicitis. The paper reported that the star was admitted to the Doctors Center in Puerto Rico’s capital, San Juan.

According to the outlet, he will need to stay in the hospital for another four or five days to recover from his emergency surgery, which was reportedly performed within the first hours of his admission to the hospital.

Bad Bunny’s publicist confirmed to Telemundo that “Bad Bunny had an emergency appendicitis surgery yesterday. This is why he was taken into the hospital. He’s doing well and is currently recovering at the hospital.” The publicist told Telemundo that the singer is expected to recover and be fine.

The reggaetónero hasn’t posted on social media since mid-May, making it all the more difficult for fans to piece together the events that led to his hospital admission. Once news broke that he had been admitted to the hospital, rumors started to fly that the “Yo Perreo Sola” singer had contracted the COVID-19 virus. Although appendicitis is no fun and a very serious matter, fans were thankful it wasn’t Coronavirus.

Just last week, San Benito was making history on the cover of Playboy.

Bad Bunny’s hospitalization comes just days after he graced the cover of Playboy magazine in all his glory – making history in the process. He was the first ever man (aside from magazine founder Hugh Hefner) to land the cover unaccompanied.

Fans were eating it up.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… perfection!” one fan wrote about his Playboy appearance, while another emphasized the magazine spread and accompanying interview were “everything I need.”

The collective reaction on Twitter was one of shock and disappointment.

As if 2020 – hell, even the past week – couldn’t get more intense, Bad Unny had to be hospitalized. Many just can’t comprehend the epic disaster that is 2020. One person on Twitter summed up the last few days succinctly saying: “Naya Rivera is missing. Tiktok is possibly being banned. A Trump supporter disrespectfully put a MAGA hat on Selena’s statue. Goya’s cancelled. Bad Bunny is at the hospital. All in one day. WE GET IT 2020 YOU’RE CHAOTIC AS HELL. STOP DOING THIS TO US.”

But fans from across the world are sending Bad Bunny good vibras.

Twitter erupted with messages of love and support for San Benito.

“Where do I sign up to give a limb, lung whatever he needs bruh,” one devoted fan wrote on the platform upon learning of the star’s health condition.

“Bad Bunny in the f–king hospital,” another lamented, adding that “2020 can’t get any worse.”

“If he goes, I go!” wrote another of Bad Bunny’s ride-or-dies, though we are here to inform that no one has to go anywhere since it appears the singer is in recovery, and should be heading back out and about into the world in a matter of days. 

Get well soon Bad Bunny!
