The Scary Reason Pink Rewrote Her Will

When you think of the singer Pink, you don't think of a woman who would be pondering her mortality and debating what to do with her estate, but the year 2020 had much of the world taking a closer look at how short and precious life is.

As a legendary singer, born Alecia Beth Moore on September 18, 1979 in Pennsylvania (via Biography), Pink has to always watch her financial life and assets. With her kind of wealth, totaling $200 million at the time of this writing, according to Celebrity Net Worth, making sure you have a will in place is vital.

In April 2020, something happened that made Pink decide to change her will. She contracted COVID-19, the dangerous virus that has stopped the world, causing some people to just have cold symptoms and others to die, often with no rhyme or reason. Still thousands are getting very sick and fear they may not survive.

Pink's COVID-19 diagnosis left her frighteningly ill

Pink opened up about her scary battle with COVID-19 to Mark Wright of iHeartRadio, according to People. While Pink and her four-year-old son, Jameson, were sick, her husband, Carey Hart, and daughter Willow did not catch the virus.

"It was really, really bad, and I rewrote my will," Pink told Wright. "I called my best friend and I said, 'I just need you to tell Willow how much I love her.' It was really, really scary and really bad." Being a mom and feeling that sick from COVID-19 when what the world knew about it was still very little caused Pink to think about her parenting and her children more than anything else.

"As a parent, you think, 'What am I leaving for my kid? What am I teaching them? Are they going to make it in this world?'" the singer continued. "And what do I need to tell them if this is the last time I get to tell them anything?' "

Pink has never been shy about her battle with COVID-19

Soon after Pink recovered from COVID-19 in the spring 2021, she reflected on what had just happened to her, her son Jameson, and how it was a life-defining experience.

As we inch closer to Mother's Day, she wrote several essays for NBC News, in which she spoke about what she and Jameson had gone through.

"Battling COVID-19 along with my 3-year-old son was the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother" she wrote. "Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next."

Still, the singer knew she wasn't alone and wrote for the many mothers also experiencing the ongoing pandemic. "But our story is not unique," she added. "There are mothers all over America, and the world, that are facing this same uncertainty every single day."
