American Idol winner Samantha ‘Just Sam’ Diaz, was hospitalized over the weekend from a currently unknown ailment. The 23-year-old singer had announced her current stay in the hospital through a series of posts on her social media.

The latest news tells that she is back in a healthcare institution after just a day of being released. Since the singer hasn’t opened up about her current situation, fans are wondering ‘What Happened to Just Sam?’

Samantha ‘Just Sam’ Diaz Shares Her Stay in the Hospital on Instagram

On August 24, the New York based singer posted on social media about her current situation. At the time, she wrote on her Instagram story “Thank you to everyone that checked on me. I am ALIVE and out of the hospital.”

Unfortunately for Diaz, it would only take a full day before she would return to the hospital. On August 26, she shared yet another post, where she thanked fans for their ongoing prayers. Along with this, she posted a picture of a weighing scale in a medical exam room with the caption “100lbs is crazyyy…I seriously need help.”

Revealing her recent medical scare, and being underweight indicates that her health has deteriorated. She also posted a video inside the hospital wearing a face mask with the caption “I need a better hospital bruh. I hate it here.”


How is She Doing Now?

This singer is staying in high spirits like she always has, despite the recent events. Throughout her hospitalization, she was seen reminiscing on her past, where she sang on the subway.

Although the singer has definitely made waves in the music industry since performing on the subway, it’s great to see her look back in such a positive light. Fans are once again praising this singer for her beautiful voice that won American Idol.

Diaz has a positive outlook on life due to having humble beginnings, and not having a leisurely life early on “I kept on pushing, kept on singing, and look where it’s brought me,” she said. Hopefully, Diaz continues to improve her health and she can grace the fans with her beautiful voice once again.
