Jordyn Woods asks for ‘prayers’ after NBA star boyfriend tests positive for Covid-19

The model went Instagram official with Karl-Anthony Towns in September

Jordyn Woods has asked her followers for their “prayers”, after her boyfriend Karl-Anthony Towns tested positive for the coronavirus.

On Friday, the NBA player revealed he had contracted Covid-19, months after his mother died following a battle with the deadly virus.

Jordyn, who went Instagram official with her beau in September, took to Twitter on Saturday to share an update on her health, revealing she and her family had tested negative for the virus.

The 23-year-old wrote: “Thank you for all of the support and prayers, my family and I have all been tested and the results came back negative.”

“Let’s continue to pray for a speedy recovery for @KarlTowns,” she added. 

Sharing the news of his diagnosis, Karl wrote: “Prior to tonight’s game, I received yet another awful call that I tested positive for COVID. I will immediately isolate and follow every protocol.

“I pray every day that this nightmare of a virus will subside and I beg everyone to continue to take it seriously by taking all the necessary precautions.”

“It breaks my heart that my family, and particularly my father and sister continue to suffer from the anxiety that comes along with this diagnosis as we know all too well what the end result could be,” the Minnesota Timberwolves player added.

To my niece and nephew … I promise you I will not end up in a box next to grandma and I will beat this.”

The 25-year-old’s mother, Jacqueline Cruz, died in April 2020 following a month-long battle with Covid-19.


In an interview with ESPN last month, Karl-Anthony revealed he had seen “a lot of coffins in the last seven, eight months” amid the pandemic.

“I’ve been through a lot, obviously starting out with my mom,” he said at the time.

“Last night I got a call that I lost my uncle. I feel like I’ve been hardened a little bit by life and humbled. I’ve seen a lot of coffins in the last seven months, eight months.

“But I have a lot of people who have — in my family and my mom’s family — who have gotten COVID. I’m the one looking for answers still, trying to find how to keep them healthy.

“It’s just a lot of responsibility on me to keep my family well informed and to make all the moves necessary to keep them alive.”
