The world is still reeling from the death of Friday actor Tommy 'Tiny' Lister -- but according to new reports, the actor was concerned that he had contracted COVID-19 a second time in the days leading up to his death.

However, a week before his death, Lister began "to feel not well again," his manager Cindy Cowan said, per PEOPLE.

"He thought maybe his diabetes was starting to kick up because he just wasn't feeling right," Cowan says. "He said, 'I feel like I'm getting COVID again.'"
