Gena Tew Addresses Whether She’s Slept With Celebrities Amid AIDS Battle
Questions about how many celebrities Gena Tew may or may not have been involved with throughout the years have been addressed by her. as she continues to document her experience of living with AIDS.
The 27-year-old beauty, who has an additional 53,000 followers on Instagram in addition to her more than 500,000 fans on TikTok, since making her condition public in March, has been sharing videos on social media that detail her challenges.
Social media star Tew displayed her difficulty rising from her bed in a heartbreaking video that was published on June 11 and has already been viewed more than 12 million times. Her weight had dropped significantly and muscular atrophy had made her legs weak.
Tew has dealt with a number of inquiries from her fans, who are becoming more and more interested in the celebrities she has encountered.
She responded to a question on TikTok this week from a follower who wanted to know if she had slept with “a lot of celebrities.”
Tew chose to answer the question indirectly in one heartbreaking movie that was published on June 11 and has since gone viral. She shared a brief clip of herself again asking, “Have you?” before chuckling.
Tew’s video, according to one fan, functioned as “”A yes,” she replied, before adding: “If you say so. At this point, I’m just letting people think as they please.”
I’m about to claim I met Prince or Michael Jackson and see what social media comes up with,” Tew said in response to a follower who suggested that she should just admit that she had sex with numerous celebs.
Tew responded to criticism from her critics last week, some of whom said she had inflated her online profile due to her health problems.
“People keep saying clout but I been doing music but I been doing music/modeling [before] I got sick,” Tew posted in a video on the app.
She then went on to post pictures of herself posing and modelling alongside a variety of famous people, including what appeared to be Nick Cannon, Taryn Manning, Trey Songz, Dave East, Davido, Jeffree Star, and Diplo.
She also used a screenshot of herself that had previously been published on Chris Brown’s Instagram account in her video montage.
Tew captioned the film, which made no mention of having sex with any of the famous people it showed: “How upset did this make you feel? I’m only human; AIDS DID NOT MAKE ME NOTORIOUS.”
Tew has posted a tonne of videos about her health journey in recent months, including posts from her home and films of her doctor visits. In these videos, Tew revealed that she had lost vision in one eye and that her weight had dropped to a low of 65 pounds.
Tew has demonstrated footage of herself gaining weight as she recovers from the worst of her health battle thanks to cutting-edge therapy.
Tew provided a video response to a query about how she contracted AIDS last month, saying: “I do not know who transmitted it to me or where I got it, how I got it. All I know is that they told me I had to take it for eight to ten years since I was close to passing away from my illness.
“And during that time, I was homeless and residing in New York City. I was raped a few times; it’s not something I particularly like to talk about. I’ve had a few free tattoos, so I suppose it may have been a dirty needle.
“Do those individuals know me? No. Did I speak out when those events occurred? No. I was naive and I was stupid and I was young.”
AIDS, or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is described by Mayo Clinic as “a persistent, sometimes fatal illness brought on by the human immunodeficiency virus” (HIV). HIV interferes with your body’s capacity to fight disease and infection by weakening your immune system.
A sexually transmitted illness is called HIV (STI). Additionally, it can be transferred through sharing needles, injecting illegal substances, and coming into touch with infected blood. Additionally, it can be passed from mother to kid while she is pregnant, giving birth, or nursing. Without treatment, it could take years before HIV compromises your immune system enough to cause AIDS.
HIV/AIDS cannot be cured, however, drugs can be used to manage the virus and significantly slow down its development.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “access to superior antiviral medicines has significantly reduced fatalities from AIDS worldwide, especially in resource-poor countries.”
“The majority of HIV-positive individuals in the U.S. now don’t progress to AIDS thanks to these life-saving medications. HIV usually progresses to AIDS if left untreated in 8 to 10 years.”
