Jerry Demara, star of The Voice Mexico, died on Monday at the age of 42, after being in hospital from self-injecting vitamins into his buttocks.
Billboard reported that the television personality died from complications from Covid-19.
Just 48 hours before he passed away, the singer filmed himself in a Facebook Live video in which he spoke of the pain he was in.
The Latin Grammy nominee explained to his fans that he had been self-administering vitamin injections into his buttocks.
The star – real name Gerardo – told his followers: "I am in the hospital because I have a problem, in the buttocks.
"By mistake, on three different days spaced apart, I injected vitamins in the same area.
"The day before yesterday was my last one. For six hours I've had a pain level of 12."
He was admitted to hospital in California suffering with vomiting and delirium after injecting the as-yet unconfirmed vitamins.
Jerry was later transferred to Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley but died 48 hours later.
His devastated wife Claudia confirmed the tragic news on Facebook.
She wrote in Spanish: "Family and friends the love of my life is already enjoying the Glory of God, thank you all for your prayers, I love you forever."
Claudia had told her followers that doctors had discovered blisters on her husband's leg and were "intervening".
It's reported that he underwent surgery and had a stable condition, but died not long later.
The cause of death is yet to be confirmed.
Jerry shot to fame after competing on the 2012 series of The Voice Mexico, eventually going on to become a popular regional singer and song-writer.
His debut release Brindemos was nominated in the "Best Banda Album" category at the 2018 Latin Grammy Awards.
The musician was born in Los Angeles and is survived by his wife Claudia and their two children, Allison and Jerry Jr.
