No sooner than when we reported on DMX doing fine and being taken off of life support did we receive news that things had taken a turn for the worse. As of the moment, he has family flying in to see him due to how things have progressed. Paramedics tried resucitating him for a half hour while he was deprived of oxygen. The lack of oxygen was said by doctors to be severely impacting his brain. One family source has said, “It’s not looking good.”
An official statement from his rep reads, “Last night Earl “DMX” Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home. At this time he remains in ICU in critical condition. Earl has been a warrior his entire life. This situation represents yet another road he must conquer.” The rep goes on … “The Simmons Family appreciates the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl. Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world. It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need.”
DMX spent a year in rehab in 2019 and started performing again that December. He’s since done a Versuz battle with Snoop Dogg last summer which brought in over 500,000 viewers showing he was not only ready for a comeback but his fans were eager for one as well. Prayerfully he pulls through this setback and is still able to deliver one for his fans and most importantly will be able to be there for his family.
