Moneybagg Yo revealed his mother has tested positive for Covid-19 and was diagnosed with pneumonia.
The distressed rapper shared his mom's medical diagnoses in a since-deleted tweet. He seemed baffled that his mother was diagnosed with pneumonia and Covid-19 after she apparently took the Covid-19 vaccine (according to Facebook posts).
"Dam mane how df My mama got COVID and pneumonia," he tweeted on April 30, "smh I need y'all prayers right now."
The 29-year-old Memphis native, who was born Demario DeWayne White Jr., didn't share his mother's current condition.
The news comes after the rapper was nearly canceled for bragging about his wealth back in February.
He shared a series of tweets bragging that he raked in $2 million from $200K booking fees during the pandemic.
"Not gone lie I made a couple [millions] in da pandemic, ion want it to end," he tweeted. "I feel like the pandemic help a lot of people."
Following the backlash, Moneybagg returned to Twitter to apologize.
"I apologize to everybody I offended my comment was very insensitive it was not my intent to hurt anyone."

Lizzo was one of the celebrity guests on Combs' Easter Sunday digital dance party. The mogul raised more than $3.7 million to aid healthcare workers during the coronavirus outbreak in America.
Combs hastily stopped the dance party when Lizzo, who tuned in remotely from her home, began twerking during the livestream.
Combs tried to play it off as if he objected to the vulgar rap lyrics of Moneybagg Yo's track.
But Lizzo knew she was wrong, as she apologized profusely for twerking on the day the Lord rolled the boulder from the cave.
Combs was heavily criticized for "fat-shaming" Lizzo when skinny socialite Draya Michele twerked during his dance party later than night.
Musician Tory Lanez redeemed Lizzo by allowing her to perform a subdued twerk during his radio podcast.
Lizzo, dressed in a pink teddy, seemed embarrassed to drop it low after the controversy she caused on the Lord's day.
