Smokey Robinson spent nearly two weeks in the hospital battling COVID-19 late last year.
As reported by The Daily Mail, Robinson spent 11 days in a Los Angeles hospital after contracting the virus last December. The singer claims he was so weak from the virus that he nearly died.
“I got it severely and I was hospitalized for 11 days, and four or five of those I do not even remember,” he told DailyMail.com.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said, “I am very happy to share (my story) because I hope it helps someone, COVID just comes on and the people ask me today, who knew that I had it… where did you get it, how did you get it- I don’t know. I have no idea how I got it. All I know is I looked up and I had it.”
The music legend added, “It was a horrible, horrible thing and while I was going through it I wasn’t really thinking about ‘Hey man, perhaps you will never get out of this hospital alive,’ I wasn’t thinking like that. I was just thinking about (how) I got to get myself together.”
