Dave Chappelle has tested POSITIVE for coronavirus…just TWO DAYS after posing for a group snapshot with Elon Musk and Grimes in Texas
Dave Chappelle has tested positive for COVID-19.
A representative for the 47-year-old comedian confirmed the news to TMZ on Thursday, adding that Chappelle has ‘not yet experienced any symptoms’ of the virus.
Although he is ‘currently quarantined,’ Dave recently hung out backstage with Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his partner Grimes after his standup show at Stubb’s Ampitheater in Texas.

Due to his diagnosis, the Chappelle Show star was forced to cancel his remaining shows, which were originally scheduled to take place on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
According to TMZ, refunds will be offered to those with tickets to Dave’s now cancelled performances, all of which included Rogan.
Though many comedians have pressed pause of their scheduled standup tours, Dave has continued to bring comedy to the masses, specifically to his native Ohio since June.
Before gaining admittance to the show venues, attendees – as well as Chappelle and his crew – were subjected to rapid COVID-19 tests.
