His longtime attorney, Murray Richman, confirmed to CNN Sunday that DMX had a heart attack at his home in White Plains around 11pm on Friday and was taken to a local hospital via ambulance.
Richman then stated that the artist was on ventilator. The attorney said he did not know what could have caused the rapper to have a heart attack.
CNN reached out to representatives of DMX on Tuesday for an update on its status.
Over the weekend, a statement was issued from his representative, wishing him well and saying, “On behalf of the DMX’S family, we are asking everyone to include him in your prayers. His position has not changed.”
“He is currently in a coma and on ventilator,” the statement said. “The family appreciates the love and prayers from all over the world. The family will update everyone as we update. Otherwise respect the family’s privacy.”
According to News 12, police had to block the road after a crowd of prayers for the artist, who grew up in Yonkers and returned to the community over the years on Thanksgiving and donations to residents. He attended the local community center as a youth.
