Influencer Gena Tew shares AIDS diagnosis

Instagram model Gena Tew has been sharing her health journey in recent days, after getting her AIDS diagnosis.

Tew posted a TikTok video just two days ago, where she shared with her followers that she was sick and was almost on the verge of dying before doctors recognized what was wrong with her. While she said that she did not know who might have given her the virus, she revealed that medical practitioners told her that she has been living with it for approximately eight to 10 years.


The social media figure, who has been linked to several A-list hip hop artists like Nick Cannon, Dave East and Chief Keef, stated that she refuses to expose those who might be at risk.

Explaining the many possible ways in which she might have contracted AIDS, Gena Tew revealed in her most recent video that she had been assaulted a few times while she was homeless and living in New York. She further said:

“I have had a couple free tattoos so it could have been a dirty needle, I don’t know. Do I know any one of those people? No. Did I say anything when those things happened? No. Because I was naive and I was stupid and I was young.”

In her health updates, the influencer also shared that she was unaware of the diagnosis as she had not been tested in the past ten years. From her videos, it seems likely that the influencer caught the virus when she was between the ages of 17 and 19.
