Gospel singer Kelly Price was reported missing last Saturday after being discharged from a hospital where she was treated for COVID-19.
Price’s sister Shanrae Cheree Price rebukes the attorney’s claim that the Gospel singer is safe.
According to NBC News, Kelly’s legal representative, Monica Ewing, said she doesn’t believe the Gospel singer is unaccounted for, despite being declared missing by law enforcement.
“She’s safe,” Ewing said, adding. “She was released from the hospital with Covid, and she went to a quiet place, and she’s trying to recover.”
The lawyer did not detail the singer’s whereabouts but said that the singer is still recovering after being released from the hospital.
“She’s got to rest and start the journey back to health,” she added.
