On Friday, pop singer Pink revealed that both she and her 3-year-old son, Jameson, had tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks earlier. And in an IGTV interview Sunday, she shared more details about their “roller coaster” battle with the disease, USA Today reports.
Perhaps most alarming to Pink was how severely her son was affected, she told Jen Pastiloff during the charity IGTV broadcast, Billboard reports.
”My 3-year-old, Jameson, has had the worst of it. I’ve had many nights where I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life,” Pink said, according to People. “At one point I heard myself saying, ‘I thought they promised us our kids would be OK.’ It’s not guaranteed. There is no one that is safe from this.”
Jameson has had a fever of at least 100 degrees for three weeks, according to the Hollywood Reporter, in addition to diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, lethargy and more concerning symptoms.
Despite being healthy and only 40-years-old herself, the asthmatic singer revealed that the disease affected her enough to put her on nebulizers for the first time in 30 years, reports USA Today.
The two were re-tested and are now testing negative.
Pink’s other child, Willow, and her husband, Carey Hart, so far have not shown any symptoms, Today.com reports.
To celebrate their recovery and help others battling the illness, Pink has donated $1 million to coronavirus relief efforts, Fox News reports.

Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative. It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities. In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.❤️
