Tank Reveals That He's Going Deaf

  /  05.12.2021

Tank is making a shocking revelation.

In a video, which he uploaded to Instagram on Wednesday, the 45-year-old R&B singer announced that he’s going deaf in one ear and suffering hearing loss in the other.

“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear and I’m kinda losing sound in my left,” he told his 1.8 million followers.

He’s been experiencing dizziness and can’t walk a straight line. “All of this out of nowhere, don’t know how or why,” added Tank, who’s been seeing a doctor and taking medication.

Despite the scary prognosis, he remains optimistic. “It still hasn’t given me a reason to give up. It still hasn’t given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I’ve set out to be. The goals are still the same, to be great, to be the greatest.”

He plans to keep fighting and will be documenting his journey with the hope of inspiring others. “No matter what you’re going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your body’s failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going, keep pushing,” he urged.

He received messages of support from friends and family including his wife Zena Foster. “I love you babe and don’t worry I can talk louder,” she commented.

In December, Jessie J revealed that she was suffering from a similar situation called Ménière’s disease that left her “completely deaf in my right ear” and unable to “walk in a straight line.”

“@jessiej i diagnosed him with what you had around going on around christmas time,” wrote Zena.

Earlier this year, Tank released his single “Can’t Let It Show.” His new album is scheduled for a summer release.
