DMX In A Coma, Will Undergo "Battery Of Tests" This Week


Recommended Posts

In spite of Claudia Jordan tweeting that DMX has passed away, TMZ swiftly jumped in to dispel rumors about the rapper's recovery. DMX has reportedly been in a "vegetative state" for four days following a drug overdose. The rapper has been candid about his addictions and with each new path to recovery, he has been supported by his family, friends, and fans. Millions of people worldwide have responded to the tragic news of DMX's hospitalization but over the last few days, there has been misinformation shared, causing confusion. Jordan's tweet devastated fans, but she quickly apologized.

It's unclear what led Jordan to believe that DMX had passed away, but TMZ shared that the news of the rapper's death isn't true. "X remains in a coma and his condition has not materially changed," the outlet reported. DMX's manager Steve Rifkind offered the update. It's said that the rapper's family visited with him this evening (April 6) and DMX is scheduled to undergo testing this week.

It's also reported that DMX's "prognosis does not look good" but on Wednesday (April 7), X will undergo a "battery of tests" to determine "the level of brain function." From there, his family will make tough choices about his future as it's also stated that DMX "was deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes."

"DMX is currently on life support and in a coma," Rifkind said. "There are multiple people with inaccurate information about his well-being and it is not helpful and productive. Tomorrow he will undergo further tests on his brain function and his family will determine what's best from there. We appreciate your prayers and support."

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
