Fantasia Barrino Xavier Barrino

Singer Fantasia Barrino is praying for the swift recovery of her younger brother Xavier Barrino after he was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The former American Idol star asked her fans on to pray for her brother in a series of posts last week.

Alongside a photo of her youngest sibling standing next to a motorbike, she wrote:

"All of you who follow or see this PLEASE PRAY NOW please please please for my baby Bro please he is my Heartbeat PRAY Warriors (fans) PRAY (sic)".

In another post on Tuesday, Sept. 12, the singer revealed her brother was scheduled to go under the knife for the sixth time.

"Hey my Baby @xavierbarrino 6th Surgery today Lil dude Keep Fighting". She also added a praying hands emoji.

Further details about Xavier's condition have not been shared, but Fantasia previously explained her brother would have to learn to walk again once he's on the road to recovery.

    It probably took 6 surgeries just to remove those tight @$$ pants! ?

    PRAY Warriors (fans) PRAY (sic)”.
    Who did this? Lol. Not Warriors fans...prayer warriors. People that pray. I can't. Lol.

    Prayerfully, her brother will be fine. That being said, I don't let everyone pray for me. You never know exactly what they are praying for. We need to be in agreement.

  • Ms Thang

    Her career has already taken off. The young man had an accident on a motorcycle. No conspiracy theory here.

  • OrchidJones-VIRGO in yo mouth!

    Two of my people in my MC went down over the weekend as well. These are crazy times because I wont blame actual drivers all the time. We as riders have a responsibility to be safe. My prayers go up for healing and restoration. I am glad he lives to tell about it!

  • Ms.Devereaux

    That's way I said that for the conspiracy theorist if she has a surge in album sales or ticket sales ppl will blame that.

    Good friend of mine was killed along her boyfriend he played for a go-go band. My cousin has one and he and his frat brothers riding down I-95 all crazy. His dad is in a motorcycle club Buffalo Soliders think that's the name he raced pro in the past. Didnt Marlon Jackson hv a real bad motorcycle crash?

  • MythCalledLove

    I hate to ride behind a motorcycle my nerves are so bad. Some riders take big chances but I hv seen cars ride too close and just change lanes mind you they know a damn motorcycle is there they just show no respect. Saw this young guy riding his shirt just blowing showing his skin. We stopped at the light I got his attention and said please be careful. Prayers for your friends and Fantasia brother.

  • OrchidJones-VIRGO in yo mouth!

    Thank you sis. I appreciate that. These riders who give us bad names be on some yolo until it's yolo. It's dumb and stupid.

  • pure_rachet

    Me too. My dad was a preacher and many of the funerals he did were motorcycle riders. Almost all closed casket. Made me promise to never get on one and I will never.

  • dontgetblocked

    Motorcycles are dangerous. I live in a big motorcycle state and I drive extra careful because I never want to cause someone's death.

  • sunni_daze

    I hope this young man pulls thru. I have seen too many accidents this summer and lives lost last summer. May TMH be with this young man and grant him a swift recovery.

  • sunni_daze

    Me too I can't ride behind motorcycles and I can't ride in front or beside 18 wheelers

  • Lady Elle

    It was Michael's other brother Randy that had the bad motorcycle crash.
