Many fans of August Alsina are worried about the singer’s well-being. He has posted cryptic messages on social media that have caused concern, and he has also been affected by backlash after speaking up about his relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith. With all of this changing news surrounding August’s health status, his fans make it a point to show him love whenever they can. August once revealed that he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, but fans have questions about his health since news of the singer being attacked has come out.
August Alsina had an autoimmune disease that affected the liver. He talked about it in an episode of the Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. The Red Table Talk always makes headlines because of what the guests discuss; back in 2017, August himself made headlines when he talked about his disease on the show. He revealed that his immune system was battling itself and that reality was that he was sick a lot. People didn’t have to feel sorry for him, though, because he wasn’t looking for any sympathy! Instead, he wanted people to know that he isn’t like other cancer patients because his disease isn’t as bad! Unfortunately, this condition runs in his family, too: according to The Sun, August explained that both his father and grandfather died from severe illness, but luckily they were able to sit down with his family members before they passed away so they could explain what exactly was going on with their health. Apparently, there are many forms of this disease, including hemochromatosis which consists of too much iron being created by what you eat and damaging tissues and Wilson’s disease, which is described as having too much copper accumulating in the brain, liver and other vital organs along with the lack of Alpha-1 antitrypsin protein that can also cause liver disease.
August Alsina claims Tory Lanez attacked him. In an Instagram post from September 19, 2032, August shared in a lengthy caption that the altercation happened backstage at a Chicago venue because he didn’t shake Tory’s hand when they saw each other. The issue started because August thought Tory didn’t like him and his ego was bruised when August refused to shake his hand. Therefore, Tory used violence against him to take matters into his own hands. It seemed a bit confusing to me why Tory turned up angry after hitting a blunt laced with cocaine, as August said in the caption. He snickered [hurt] me when I turned my head to move to the side. His antsy movement and an eye on the endless sic’ing [attacking] with him surrounding me, there was security and some tucked away with guns. Then Tory ran behind him and hid to run back in the building. Through his Instagram story, which was shared by The Shade Room, Tory denied being involved in an altercation with August. He claims he was working in the studio but social media has officially labeled him as a liar since August caught wind of it and shared that he is standing on truth via twitter. Also, there are videos of Tory and August backstage at the Chicago venue as well as a clip of August ignoring Tory as he tries to shake his hand. Considering Tory is already in hot water over allegedly assaulting Megan Thee Stallion, it appears he may have to deal with yet another legal issue.
