Price representative, Monique Ewing, told celebrity outlet there was no shortage of the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and covering the virus in an undisclosed location. The 48-year-old artist’s legal representative reportedly contacted Cobb County Police to inform them that she was safe – this after the Police Department declared her missing following a property check -be carried out at his home last Saturday.
“We are told that authorities found no evidence of foul play and spoke with Kelly’s boyfriend at the residence,” TMZ previously reported.
The Gospel and R&B singer has been reported missing by the National Crime Information Center.
The family told TMZ that Price was admitted to hospital in early August after battling symptoms of COVID. She ended up in intensive care when her condition worsened. The singer posted a video on July 29 revealing to fans that she had contracted the potentially fatal virus.
Price captioned the clip, “I found out today that I have COVID. I am COVID positive. I’m following Dr.’s orders. I’m in quarantine. Feeling really drained. Splitting headache but I’m not in the hospital. I am grateful and expect a quick recovery.
According to the report, family members spoke to Price while he was in hospital and his children were allowed to visit him. However, three weeks after starting her medical treatment, her relatives received a call indicating that she had been released, although she was not in perfect health. The price has not been heard since.
The family are also referred to as Price’s boyfriend for allegedly forbidding them from visiting Price’s house. According to the report, his suspicious behavior prompted someone to alert authorities for a welfare check last week. Now, there is an active investigation to locate the beloved artist, according to the report.
At the time of Price’s alleged disappearance, fans expressed concern for the singer on social media.
One person commented under TMZ’s Twitter post: “This is really suspicious”
Another wrote, “A very, very strange story. She is one of my favorite artists. Hope for some reason this is a publicity stunt. Otherwise, you better keep an eye on her “boyfriend”. Pray for her to be found and to be unharmed.
Several people wonder about the timeline and why the public just heard about Price’s disappearance.
“How can a famous singer disappear in Georgia without anyone noticing?” While in Iraq, which is said to be precarious, millions of women participate in the Arbaeen carnival and nothing happens ”, one person tweeted.
Another added, “Until we see how long it will take the media to give Kelly Price’s disappearance as much attention as they gave Gabby Petito.”
Someone else said, “Kelly Price’s boyfriend looks extremely shady. She’s been missing for almost a month now and you won’t let her own family and friends visit the house? Go on then. “
“It’s summary asf,” wrote another Twitter user, adding: “She had a son and grandchildren that she certainly didn’t scare away like that, they better put more pressure on this boyfriend because he’s definitely involved.”
The family is understandably concerned for Price’s safety.
In July, Price revealed on Instagram that she lost her grandmother to COVID-19 and took a social media hiatus to deal with her death. Additionally, Price’s mother passed away in November 2020 and his grandfather died of COVID-19 earlier that year.
