The Minnesota Timberwolves star revealed on Friday that he’s lost six family members to the virus since his mother, Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, tragically died while battling Covid-19 in April.
Karl-Anthony said: “I’ve been through a lot, obviously starting out with my mom.
“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.”
The athlete continued: “I’ve seen a lot of coffins in the last seven months.
“I have a lot of people who have — in my family and my mom’s family — 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.”
Back in March, he told fans in an Instagram video that his mother was in a medically induced coma and had been placed on a ventilator.
The NBA star’s father also tested positive for the virus, though recovered.
Last month, Karl-Anthony emotionally opened up about the final moments with his mother and the grief he felt over losing her in an 18-minute long YouTube video.

Karl-Anthony explained on Friday that he posted the person video because he “didn’t want people to feel the way I felt,” adding: “I wanted to try to keep them from having the ordeal and the situation I was going through.
“It just came from a place that I didn’t want people to feel as lonely and upset as I was.
“I really made that video just to protect others and keep others well-informed, even though I knew it was going to take the most emotionally out of me that I’ve ever been asked to do.”

Jordyn, 23, and Karl-Anthony went public with their relationship when they shared a photo together on Instagram in September.

The model continued: “I had my family to talk to, I had you to talk to, but I just felt like I had no one. You take everything you think you know for a whole decade, the people you think you know, the life you think you know, everything that you’ve grown up doing and you take it all away from someone. I didn’t even know how to feel.”
