R&B artist Jeremih's family is asking for prayers as the 33-year-old battles "severe COVID-19 health complications."

The rapper, whose real name is Jeremy Felton, is on a ventilator in the intensive care unit to help him breathe and he is not out of the woods yet, a representative revealed to ET Canada in a statement.

"The COVID-19 condition he's experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions. His family would like to remind the world that COVID-19 is real and not to be taken lightly," the statement read.

"Also, it's important for people infected to quarantine and let their families and friends know ASAP," his rep continues. "There's no shame in contracting COVID-19, and people that have it need to be responsible and considerate of others. Everyone diagnosed with COVID-19 is affected differently. Unfortunately for Jeremih, COVID-19 viciously attacked his body."

The statement concluded by thanking fans for their support and requesting that they pray for Jeremih.

"The family believes daily prayers to God. A great team of doctors and nurses is helping him pull through. He's not out of the woods yet, but progress is being made. The family and friends are praying that he starts breathing on his own soon and makes a full recovery."

Upon learning of Jeremih's condition, fellow musicians took to social media to also ask for prayers.

"Pray for my boy @jeremih he's not doing good this covid s--- is real. he's in ICU in Chicago," rapper 50 Cent wrote in an Instagram post.

"Please if you can take a second to pray for my friend Jeremih, he is like a brother to me and he's ill right now. I believe in the healing power of Jesus so if you can for me please please say a prayer over him," Chance the Rapper tweeted.

"Keeping Jeremih in my prayers," added Toni Braxton.
