Coco Austin Says Family Is ‘Falling Apart’ as Dad Battles COVID-19: ‘Too Early for Him to Go’

The Situation

Coco is apparently trying to stay strong from afar as her dad battles coronavirus.

On Wednesday, the former Ice Loves Coco star, 41, opened up to about how she feels her family is “falling apart”.

This was after her father Steve was hospitalised in Arizona regarding Coronavirus.

Austin said her dad has pneumonia in both lungs, and a ventilator may be necessary.

She said she wants him to “pull-through” but shared that it’s “not looking good.”

The Pretext

“I’ve been sending as much love as I can, but there’s only so much I can do from a distance,” Austin said.

“I want to be in the room with him right now and hold his hands, and just let him know that his family loves him, to push through, and this is too early for him to go.”

According to Austin, her father is “at the point where he can’t even talk,” and he’s become “so frustrated that he’s in this position that he doesn’t want to get on the phone.”

The actress added that two of her aunts also contracted the coronavirus.

“It’s like, ‘Oh my God, like, my family is falling apart, We’re here thinking we came to Arizona to get away from the craziness in New York and New Jersey but it has taken a toll on us’,” she said.

Her father, she said, first started showing symptoms on father’s day.

He then had trouble breathing and felt a pins-and-needles sensation, but didn’t seek treatment until nine days after the onset of the symptoms.

The End

The actress — who shares 4-year-old daughter Chanel with husband Ice T— said she wants fans to learn from her situation and “know that I didn’t feel like my family could be touched.”

She also educated people on the importance of wearing a mask.
