Kelly Price has had enough!
News about the R&B diva’s whereabouts have dominated headlines over the weekend after she was found listed on the National Crime Information Center’s site as a missing person.
The posting – which came as the result of her children contacting law enforcement authorities to conduct a check to investigate her wellness – was later slammed by the singer’s attorney, Monica Ewing, as incorrect when she took to press to indicate Price was safe, recovering from COVID-19 from an undisclosed location, and would make an official statement later.
Ewing’s announcement was disregarded by Kelly’s sister, Shanrae Price, who hit back with statements that she wouldn’t believe the ‘Friend of Mine’ performer was safe until she ‘physically saw her’ (and even suggested the two never go lengthy periods without speaking).
Now, Kelly is opening up to silence the chatter. Hop inside to hear her tearful response to the hoopla.

PRICE ON HER COVID-19 EXPERIENCE IN THE HOSPITAL:
“At some point they lost me; I woke up some days later, and the first thing I remember is the team of doctors standing around me asking me if I knew what year it was,” Kelly said before clarifying, “I died.”
PRICE ON WHY HER FAMILY & FRIENDS HADN’T SEEN HER FOR WEEKS AFTER HER HOSPITAL DISCHARGE:
“The people who could actually say something are not allowed to because of HIPAA law, but I was being seen several times a week by home health aides after being released.”
PRICE ON CURRENT HEALTH STATUS:
“I am facing a very uphill battle right now,” she said before breaking down in tears. “I have a lot of rehabilitation to do. I suffered a lot of internal damage.”
PRICE ON WHY SHE WENT MIA:
“There were people…coming to my house, ringing the bell, leaving things at the doorstep, and disturbing my neighbors all times of day and night,” she said before explaining why she turned off social media and left her house a week ago because she couldn’t rest there.
PRICE ON SISTER’S CLAIM THEY DON’T GO EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME WITHOUT SPEAKING:
“It hasn’t been two months since I’ve seen my sister; it’s been a year,” she explained. “…we hadn’t seen each other all pandemic long. That’s not new for us; we’ve been strained for a very long time.”
