What Illness Does August Alsina Have? Know His Health Condition

American rapper August Alsina has been very open about the struggles going on in his life – primarily the illness he suffers from.

Last September, he revealed via Instagram that he is working on a couple of music projects, and it will be the last his fans see or hear of him. 

As he continued, Alsina stated he hopes that “we can enjoy each other” while he is still here, on his last victory lap around the sun.

Such a post from Alsina made his fans wonder if the rapper is taking retirement from the music industry or, worst of all, dying. Fortunately, he is still alive, giving his well-wishers relief.

What illness does August Alsina have?

Since the mid-2010s, Alsina has suffered from quite a few illnesses. The first instance came in 2014 when the rapper collapsed on stage during a performance in New York. TMZ had reported he was in a coma for three days and had multiple seizures.

And after that, several more incidents followed. Then, the next year, Alsina revealed that he had to have eye surgery due to a disease in his eyes that was affecting his eyesight and causing him to go blind, per People.

The most shocking news among his fanbase came in 2017 when he opened up about his autoimmune disease that attacks his liver in a sit-down interview with his friend Jada Pinkett Smith – they also had a romantic relationship for a brief period.

Alsina had posted the conversation in a now-deleted Instagram post. He told her that he had a good chat with his late biological father’s mother and sister. “They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family. My father & grandfather both died of severe illness.”

“But they were FIGHTERS & that’s all that matters. Just ride with me is all I ask,” Alsina added.

Captioning his Instagram post, he wrote, “I’m sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the doctors are saying is most true. I have a liver disease where my autoimmune system is fighting against itself. Reality is that I’m sick all the time.”

As he went on, Alsina stated that he doesn’t like to talk much about his illness as he is not looking for anybody’s sympathy. He also urged his fans not to give him compassion or treat him like a cancer patient because he is not.

Genetic liver conditions are of a few types: alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency, hemochromatosis, and Wilson disease. They also occur due to a lack of the AAT protein or a build-up of copper and too much iron in the body.

Furthermore, these diseases can lead to different complications in a person’s liver and other organs. Some symptoms include Fatigue, Joint pain, Abdominal pain, Loss of libido, Fibrosis, cirrhosis, Cardiomyopathy, and yellowing or ‘bronzing’ of the skin.

Two years after announcing his battle with autoimmune disease, Alsina suffered from a temporary disability.

On July 9, 2019, the 29-year-old New Orleans native took to his Instagram handle to share a video from a hospital bed. He started the video by saying, “Hi guys, it’s August. As you can probably tell, I’m in the hospital.”

As he continued, Alsina said that when he woke up a couple of days before, he couldn’t walk. He couldn’t feel his legs, and his doctor suggested and ultimately admitted him into the hospital.

“We’re doing a bunch of tests and they’re saying I have some nerve damage going on throughout my body. It’s like my immune system went on vacation. So, I’m just waiting on it to come back and we can get together and it can do what it do, man.”

In the caption, he further gave an insight into his autoimmune disease and wrote, “My autoimmune disease is raging, but I’m fighting this thing & on my mission to shake back & be able to make it up to you!”

In the end, he updated his fans that he had got several new songs to share with his fans.

That was almost three years ago. So, how is Alsina doing now? Has his health condition improved? It seems the rapper is doing quite well as of now. There are no reports of his other illness or having something like in the past.

Snyder, a loving father, is one of the few Hollywood celebrities with a large family; he has an astounding eight children. Half of his eight children were adopted, and the Snyder family is a prime example of harmonious multiracial family life because several of his children were adopted from China.

Snyder grew up in a loving home and admired his mother, saying, “My mom constantly encouraged me.” He has therefore been prepared for his position as a loving and protective father by his own happy childhood.

After his first marriage, Snyder adopted children Autumn and Willow from China with Denise Weber. During their marriage, Snyder and Weber had two biological children, Olivia and Eli. 

Following the split from Weber, he began dating Kirsten Elin, with whom he had two boys, Ezekiel and Jett. 

Deborah Snyder, with whom he had a second marriage, is the mother of the children, Sage and Cash.

Madi Monroe Seemingly Leaks Ex Boyfriend Nick Machat’s Text Messages

It has been months since Madi Monroe and Nick Machat break up. The two were together for almost a year before the two parted ways.

The break up was ugly since Machat had been cheating on Monroe, and the latter called him out. Initially, Monroe supported Machat and exposed other girls he had been with.

But after Monroe saw the DM and text messages leaks that were done by the girls Machat tried to hook up with, she called it quits. She is in a loving relationship with her current boyfriend, Matthew Rossi.

However, it seems like Machat is still not over Monroe as he constantly sends her DM and text messages. Monroe leaked all of them on TikTok and exposed her former boyfriend.

Madi Monroe leaks Nick Machat’s text messages

On January 13, 2023, Monroe took to TikTok to show the text messages Machat had sent her. She exposed him and revealed that he was still sending her DM after their break up. 

The TikTok was a compilation of photos where the text messages alternated with a picture of Monroe. She wrote, “just keep loving” on her photos as well as the caption of the TikTok.

The first of the leaks showed Machat being fatphobic to Monroe. He asked her if she went shopping in the “xl section of amazon.”

He said her jeans looked like they were meant for a whale and asked her not to wear “fat people clothes.” Monroe told him not to be mean and that his words hurt her.

However, Machat did not care for her sentiments and continued to fat-shame her. In another DM, he slut-shamed her.

Monroe exposed another text message where she confessed how he scared her. She told him she wanted to sleep and was scared of him.

Machat, on the other hand, told her, “don’t do this to me.” In a Snapchat DM, he called her pathetic.

In the last text message, Machat brought up Cooper Noriega and called him a “bum friend.” Monroe told him she never wanted to see her again and asked him to leave.

Machat called it her loss and said she would end up dying like Noriega. Noriega was a friend of Monroe who was found dead in a parking lot in Burbank, California, on June 9, 2022.

His cause of death was determined six months later. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed that his death was accidental.

It was reported that he died because of the combined effect of fentanyl, lorazepam, alprazolam, also known as Xanax, and clonazepam.

Netizens took to TikTok and Instagram to call out Machat for his behavior. They called him toxic for not leaving Monroe alone even though she was in a happy relationship. 

At the time of writing, Machat has not responded to his being exposed and leaks.
