Conflicting reports have emerged over the health of R&B singer Christopher Williams.
The “I’m Dreamin'” performer’s cousin Al B Sure! shared a post on Instagram Tuesday saying Williams is in a coma.
“Please pray for my better looking twin brother in a coma,” Al B Sure! captioned a photo of the two of them together.
The post drew a flood of well-wishes from concerned fans and celebrities, including Damion Hall, Bill Bellamy, Melba Moore, and Cynthia Bailey.
But a short time later, a post of Williams’ Instagram account disputed the singer is in a coma. “Contrary to reports on social media, Christopher Williams is NOT in a coma and is in stable condition and resting comfortably. Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes,” the post said.
Williams, 54, was born in The Bronx, New York in 1967. He rose to stardom in the 1980s and released four studio albums over the years. He is best known for his hit singles “Talk to Myself” (1989), “Every Little Thing You Do” (1993), and “I’m Dreamin’” (1991), which was featured on the New Jack City soundtrack.
