Tan Mom is not in the sunshine just yet.
Patricia Krentcil emerged from a medically induced coma last week, but despite media reports that she is “ready to dive into business,” relatives told The Post they are concerned for the health of the 51-year-old.
“She’s still weak. There are still problems with her stomach — [doctors] think it’s inflammation — and she still has fluid,” said a family member who asked to remain anonymous.
According to the family member, Krentcil suffered cardiac arrest and was diagnosed with pneumonia, pancreatitis and an infection that spread to her lungs.
“It was life or death at one point. Her heart stopped . . . she had CPR done [for about six to eight minutes],” the source said. “It was dire.”
This past week, Krentcil told The Post by phone that “my whole body died — I was proclaimed dead. It was so sad.”
The harrowing ordeal has put her relatives on edge. “It was very scary,” said the family member.
Krentcil said she was rushed to Brandon Regional Hospital earlier this month after collapsing on a street in Brandon, Fla., about 30 minutes east of Tampa. (She moved to the Sunshine State, from Nutley, NJ, about six months ago.)
“I had a breakdown in my body. My whole system just collapsed,” explained Krentcil, who was arrested and charged with child endangerment in 2012 after allegedly bringing her then-5-year-old daughter, Anna, into a tanning bed in Nutley. (Krentcil served a week in jail, but a grand jury declined to indict her. Anna still lives with her.)
After her cardiac arrest, Krentcil, a smoker, was put on life support in a medically induced coma.
While the pseudo-celeb and singer told The Post that she has red-carpet engagements lined up, concerned relatives say not so fast.
“She can’t go on a red carpet now — she would fall,” the family member said, adding that Krentcil has been on “very heavy medication” and that “she’s lost between 10 and 20 pounds.”
Krentcil’s relatives are angry at her music collaborator, Adam Barta, for alerting the media of her medical state, according to the family member. “Her kids are furious. We didn’t want that out.”
Barta has been promoting a song, “Money Maka,” and music video he and Krentcil are releasing.
This isn’t the first time Krentcil has had a brush with death.
In 2017, she told The Post how, years earlier — while she was four months pregnant with daughter Ashley — she was thrown across a bar by a man whose advances she rebuffed. “Every witness said I went flying,” she said. “I was proclaimed dead twice.”
And while she may not be 100 percent yet, Krentcil is confident she’ll bounce back.
“I’m getting better,” she said. “I’m grateful — I have a lot to live for.”
