Cardi B was recently rushed to the hospital for stomach pain. The Grammy Award-winning rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday night (Apr. 1) to share that she had experienced “real bad stomach problems” for the past four days.

Cardi made the decision to go to the emergency room on Tuesday night (Mar. 31). The “Money” rapper says that she is now feeling “way better.”

“Honestly cause I been having some real bad stomach problems for 4 days,” Cardi B tweeted. “I went to the ER last night and I’m feeling way better.”

Cardi also tweeted a photo of her hospital ID bracelet that revealed the rapper’s age and the day she visited the hospital, March 31. “Hopefully tomorrow I will feel no more pain,” Cardi B added.

The now-deleted tweet had some of Cardi’s fans wondering whether or not the rapper had COVID-19. However, Cardi didn’t address the speculation. The rapper previously went viral for her rant about the virus that’s currently causing a global pandemic.

Cardi B’s rant was turned into a hit song by DJ iMarkkeyz. The song dubbed “Coronavirus” hit No. 9 Billboard‘s Rap Digital Song Sales. It also entered at No. 13 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales charts.

Cardi B also announced to her fans that she was dropping her long-awaited new single. “I’m dropping this,” she tweeted. However, her tweet was followed up with another tweet that read, “April fools,” with a myriad of laughing and funny face emojis.
