Earlier this week, the media was told that J Capri's recovery is heading in the right direction, according to  her father, Kenneth Phillips but overnight, her condition took a turn for the worse. 

"She is still in an induced coma, but she is over the main hurdles and  is in stable condition and is improving. She is reacting to pain and breathing on her own," he had said.

She will remain in an induced coma "until the swelling of her brain decreases sufficiently".

"We don't want to reverse her progress, we are hoping for the best. We can't tell for sure what is happening, but we are keeping positive and there are  encouraging signs," he said. 

The doctors at the University Hospital of the West Indies had worked feverishly to save her life.

Late last week, a rumour started spreading that the singer died following her accident. Phillips said he was deeply disappointed and hurt by the rumour. He also asked that Jamaica continues to pray for his daughter, as he is seeing the results of their prayers.

"All who want to give blood can continue to do so, because her blood count is OK now, but it is a fluctuating situation, so we always want to have blood on standby," Phillips said. 

J Capri, 23, given name Jordan Phillips, was hospitalised on November 23rd after her vehicle overturned. Reports said a car she was driving slammed into a wall in Barbican Square about 3 a.m. She was rushed to hospital following the collision.

J Capri is known for songs such as Wine and Kotch with Charly Blacks, Pull Up To Mi Bumpa with Konshens and more recently, Boom and Ben Over.

"Doctors were trying to save her but the swelling on the brain just wasn't going down. I spoke to her father a while ago, he is devastated,  trust me, right now, mi can't even talk the way mi sad...she was such a great person," Theoprince, J. Capri ' s road manager said.
