Spice has broken her silence about her health condition following allegations that she suffered a heart attack and was placed in a medically induced coma resulting from cosmetic procedure complications.
The Dancehall artist, whose real name is Grace Hamilton, shared details of her recent health scare, revealing that she suffered a ruptured hernia and that her body went into sepsis.
“Thank you Jesus for saving my life. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 Hey Besties I'm in a better space today to properly update you on my current health situation,” she said in an Instagram post on November 9.
“I suffered a damage hernia a few days ago that sent my body into sepsis, as a result I was rushed to the hospital for immediate surgery,” she continued in the caption of a picture of herself wearing a blue dress with gold trim as she bowed her head and clasped her hands together.
Spice also addressed rumors circulating on social media in which fans speculated that she suffered cardiac arrest and was in a coma following post-op surgery complications in the Dominican Republic.
According to rumors, Spice got a Brazilian Butt Lift, a popular cosmetic procedure in which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another (also called fat grafting) in order to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. The procedure was not verified by Spice.
She insisted she had stepped away from social media to give her mind a break and was unaware of the rumors that she had suffered a heart attack, was placed in a coma, and passed away.
“As you know I've been off Social Media for a while to rest mentally, so little did I know that during my medical scare it was already been said that I had a heart attack, I was in a Coma, and I also died 🤷🏾♀️but none of that is true,” the 40-year-old recording artiste expressed.
The mom of two then explained that she is “still recovering from what really happened,” thanked her well-wishers and apologized to promoters for postponing upcoming events.
“However I'm still recovering from what really happened so thanks so much for all the prayers and concerns, please take great care of yourself, eat, live, love laugh, like it's your last day, I LOVE YOU ALL SO SO MUCH 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 and yuh dun know Gracie always ago be harself,so I guess this is no more Jumping off a speaker 🔊 Boxes for me 😂.

“CAYMAN I Know you was up next, for 25th of this month however I'll see you at a later date. Any further information needed there's always a contact in my bio. THE QUEEN LOVES YOU ALL 💙💙💙💙,” she added.
