Reality TV star and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner has shot down reports that she battled coronavirus last year (19), saying that she was hospitalised for a throat infection.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star turned to social media on Thursday to clear up the rumours after a fan suggested Jenner’s battle with COVID-19, which has become a deadly pandemic, will feature on an upcoming episode of the hit reality show, reports

“For those wondering i never had flu-like symptoms!” Kylie writes on Instagram. “I had a horrible strep and staph infection in the throat (bleeding from the mouth an all) it was the sickest i’ve ever been,” Kylie clarified.
