(CelebrityAccess) — Hip-hop recording artist August Alsina is reportedly on the mend after he was hospitalized earlier this week after temporarily losing the ability to walk.
Alsina revealed his health challenges in a video he posted to his Instagram account, telling his fans he’d been hospitalized after losing feeling in his legs.
“I woke up one day and wasn’t able to walk,” Alsina says in the clip apparently recorded from his hospital bed. “I couldn’t feel my legs. My doctor ended up admitting me into the hospital.”
