LL Cool J Tests Positive For Covid-19

LL Cool J has tested positive for Covid-19.

The rapper was scheduled to headline ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest," but now to cancel.

"I know it's disappointing to the millions of fans but my test came back positive for COVID, which means I'll no longer be able to perform as scheduled at NYRE," he said in a statement. "We were ready and I was really looking forward to ringing in 2022 in my hometown in a special way, but for now I wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year. The best is yet to come!"

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 441,000 new cases were recorded on December 27 beating the January 8th's record of over 298,000 new COVD-19 cases logged in a single day.
