Boosie Badazz updated his fans on his condition after undergoing two surgical procedures to save his leg.

The 38-year-old rapper hopes his social media followers will help him raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to save his leg from amputation.

Boosie, who is a type 1 diabetic, was shot in the lower leg by an unknown gunman in a Dallas parking lot on Nov. 14.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., told his followers he is "not doing that good," and he doesn't have much time to find a specialist before he loses that leg.

Boosie said he needs a ton of money from his fans to pay for a "Specialist doctor" who works on "fixing body parts."

Sources tell TMZ bullet fragments were removed from his leg wound and surgeons added screws to stabilize the bones while the leg heals.

But type I diabetics are notoriously slow to heal, particularly after suffering a traumatic injury.

Boosie's doctors reportedly gave him medical options including amputation, but he declined, and was discharged home to Atlanta.

Now the "Wipe Me Down" rapper is searching for a specialist to save his leg from amputation.

Patreon shut down the account of a person alleging to be R. Kelly's long-suffering girlfriend Joycelyn Savage, 24. The account was disabled after the person behind the account failed to respond to requests to verify their identity.

"After multiple unsuccessful attempts to verify the identity of the account holder, we closed the Patreon page allegedly associated with Joycelyn Savage due to potential impersonation." Patreon said in a statement on Tuesday. "All patrons who signed up for the membership page were refunded and the creator did not receive any funds."

Savage, a native of Atlanta, Ga, met Kelly when she was a 19-year-old aspiring singer. She lived with Kelly and other members of his harem in a rental home in a suburb north of Atlanta.

Kelly, 52, was arrested earlier this year on 13 felony counts of child molestation and human trafficking. He is being held without bond in a Chicago jail.

Savage, left, and another one of Kelly's former girlfriends, Azriel Clary, 21, denied allegations of abuse by Kelly in a televised interview with CBS earlier this year.

The women told CBS's Gayle King there was nothing inappropriate about their relationship with Kelly.

The person behind the account took to the site on Saturday, claiming to be Savage and accusing Kelly of abusing her and keeping her a prisoner in his home. The Patreon page was linked to Savage's Instagram account that has over 86,000 followers.

"I didn't have any type of privacy at all now that I think about it," she wrote. "If I showered one of his assistants would have to be by the door while I shower. I couldn‘t talk to my parents in private sometimes. I was told what to say on the phone to them."

The account has made a significant amount of money, with a reported 2,000 users signing up for membership, with fees ranging from $3 to $25 . If the account does turn out to be fake, the money will be returned.

So far, the real Joycelyn Savage has not come forward to confirm or deny the account is hers.

Liberals hate it when Black people don't play along with their attempts to keep them "in a perpetual state of grievance in order to keep them as a one-party people in a two-party system," according to Walter E. Williams.

Online activist Tariq Nasheed was canceled by Kickstarter because, among other things, he bashed the Harriet Tubman film, starring British actress Cynthia Erivo, before the movie could earn back its production costs at the box office.

Liberals love their slavery movies - and that sticks in the craw of anti-racists like Nasheed, who railed against the movie for twisting the historical facts and for making the film's villain a Black man named "Bigger Long".

Tariq and his 266K followers on Twitter.com campaigned against the film, and they celebrated when the movie earned only $12 million on opening weekend - a flop by any other standards.

"Can anyone point to any other time in modern history where Hollywood & the mainstream media praised a movie and called it a 'success' for making just $12 million dollars on opening weekend?" Nasheed asked his followers on Twitter.

Nasheed blamed his Tubman movie critique as part of the reason for losing his Kickstarter crowdfunding to raise $200,000 for his Foundational Black American Conference 2020 in Atlanta.

Nasheed took to YouTube to lash out at Kickstarter for not giving him a clear reason why the crowdfunding was canceled.

Nasheed has since moved his crowdfunding efforts over to Indiegogo.com where he quickly raised $11,190 of his $200,000 goal.
