Pink Gets Candid about Having a Panic Attack as Her Son Jameson, 3, Battled COVID-19

Singer Pink has survived COVID-19, her son coming down with the illness, and the serious panic attacks that came with the challenging experience. She talked about it in a new interview. 

On Friday, Pink sat down on Instagram Live with friend Vanessa Inn to talk about the coronavirus pandemic and its effects on the public's wellbeing. 

The singer was personally afflicted with COVID-19 in March. She was doubly affected when her three-year-old son Jameson also got diagnosed. She talked about the panic attack that resulted.

Pink suggested that people should be aware of how anxiety and panic attacks are allegedly occurring in higher numbers. She noted how these things happen differently for everybody. 

As a mom, Pink battled both the coronavirus as well as a panic attack when she had to take care of her young son. Thankfully, Inn helped her deal with the pressure. 

"I was on the phone with you, and I was having one of my very first panic attacks, and it was during the time where I was really afraid for Jameson and just exhausted from my adrenaline..." she recalled.

Whose child is this

She noted how Inn advised her to use a grounding technique to center herself. It involved observing and identifying what textures and patterns were around her. 

Pink specifically remembered: "I look down, and I was wearing a paisley dress and sitting on a roque chair." In a previous interview, Pink revealed that her son remained feverish for weeks after the illness.

Thankfully, the mother-son pair have since recovered. Pink also shares an eight-year-old daughter, Willow, with husband Carey Hart. During testing, Pink found out about her son's food allergies.


In a May IG video, the "What About Us" singer shared a recipe for a vegan cherry tart that her son would be able to eat while revealing that he is allergic to wheat, dairy, and eggs. 

Despite the struggles, Pink and her son were able to have some good moments. In early May, Pink shared a sweet video of them enjoying movie night as they battled the coronavirus. 

The video Pink shared showed little Jameson laughing while watching "Ratatouille." The pair were wrapped up in a green blanket, and the young boy kept telling his mom, "No watch," as he giggled ever so often. 


In addition to her experience with the coronavirus, Pink has recently added her voice to the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd. Some fans didn't take kindly to it. 

When Pink reposted a message from fellow artist Billie Eilish about white privilege, Pink got backlash from some followers. One who was a lawyer said that the term implicitly suggest that other lives matter less. 

In response, Pink told her, "You are the epitome of white privilege and the saddest part is that you don't even hear yourself and probably never will." She replied to a couple of other commenters as well.

Floyd's death has prompted nationwide protests and sparked calls for justice against Officer Derek Chauvin, who kneeled on the deceased's neck for several minutes that fateful day. Most people appreciate Pink's support.
