According to @tmz_tv, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister reportedly feared he had COVID-19 again, just before he passed.
A rep for the actor told TMZ that Tiny tested positive for COVID-19 about 4 months ago. “The “Friday” star’s rep, Cindy Cowan, tells TMZ … “Tiny” tested positive around 4 months ago. He had many of the common symptoms … he felt lethargic and struggled breathing, but his diabetes also made him high risk. She says he wasn’t hospitalized but quarantined at home.”
Cindy also stated that the two were to meet on Friday, December 3rd, but they didn’t because he reportedly felt like the symptoms of COVID-19 had reappeared.
“She says he felt it was probably best for him NOT to enter her home out of fear of spreading whatever he had. Tommy’s cause of death has not yet been determined … but we’ve learned he feared he had contracted the coronavirus again.”
TMZ also reports that just days before his death, Tiny appeared to have been struggling, as he spoke during an interview with Brandon Jay.
During the interview, he expressed he was looking forward to taking the COVID-19 vaccine, after being inspire by the former presidents who agreed to take the vaccine on TV.
As previously reported, Tiny was found in his Marina Del Rey, California, apartment just before 3 p.m. on Thursday.
Sources said Tiny was not taken to a hospital because he was pronounced dead at the scene. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office was dispatched to his home but a cause of death has yet to be announced.
Please continue to keep his family in your prayers.
