DMX’s family hold vigil outside hospital as he remains in ICU

DMX’s family have broken their silence to ask fans and followers for their prayers and support. The 50-year-old rapper – real name Earl Simmons – went into cardiac arrest and was admitted to White Plains Hospital, north of New York City, according to his lawyer. Lawyer Murray Richman was unable to confirm reports that DMX had suffered a drug overdose, and said he didn’t know what exactly had caused the heart attack. He added that DMX is breathing on his own, and has been taken off a life support system. Nakia Walker, DMX’s former manager, has since told that he is in a “vegetative state”, with “lung and brain failure.” Now his family has shared a statement via People reading: “On Friday night … our brother, son, father, and colleague DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, was admitted to White Plains hospital, facing serious health issues. “We ask that you please keep Earl/DMX and us in your thoughts, wishes, and prayers as well as respect our privacy as we face these challenges.” Due to Covid restrictions, the vigil was planned for this evening outside the hospital where DMX is being treated.
