The mystery over the whereabouts of Kelly Price continues after the R&B and gospel singer was reported missing.
A legal representative for Price released a statement on Friday (Sept. 24), saying the singer is safe and recovering from COVID-19 in private. But Price’s older sister is disputing that report.
A caller who identified herself as Shanrae Price dialed into the digital “Larry Reid Live” show late Friday and told listeners: “I’m just asking everybody to pray… I understand that an attorney has stated that my sister is okay. We don’t know anything until we physically see her.”
“My sister is a very visible person. We haven’t heard anything from her in months,” she added. “She was sick and she was very sick with COVID. This is unlike her. No one has heard from her. I know everyone has their own opinions. I don’t do stuff like this, but I did want to call in. Until we physically see my sister, we don’t know anything… I’m just asking people please pray okay, because she still has two children and it’s just she and I. We lost our mother, we lost our sister six years prior. It’s just she and I.”
Adding to the confusion, an Instagram Story on Price’s official IG account featured a message from the singer’s acting coach, Sara Mornell, saying she’s been in contact with her friend.
“Just spoke to @MsKellyprice, she is recovering with her supportive partner. She sounds strong. I hope this fabrication can stop and she is able to heal,” the message says.
Price’s fans have taken to social media urging the singer to release a video statement to clear up the confusion.
Authorities in Cobb County, Georgia performed a welfare check at Price’s home last Saturday, but were unable to locate her. A missing person’s report was then filed.
Price, 48, disappeared shortly after she was released from the hospital where she was undergoing treatment for COVID-19. The “Friend of Mine” singer revealed on Instagram on July 29, that she had tested positive for the virus.
