After reporting yesterday that troubled rapper DMX was rushed to an emergency room in Florida due to an alleged fear of having a stroke, X's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, has detailed his condition.

According to Billboard, while Cohen confirmed the former Def Jam artist's unexpected check-in to an Aventura hospital, he did not say why. "It was serious enough at the time but ultimately he should be OK," he told Billboard.

"It was serious enough for him to be brought and taken into a treatment facility."

As previously reported by SOHH, X was taken to a hospital on Monday (September 22) one day before he was scheduled to appear in an Arizona court. X, who was recently extradited from Florida to Arizona, faces several charges in the state including numerous traffic violations, animal cruelty accusations and defrauding a hospital with an invalid Social Security number and name.

"He spent the night [at the hospital] and he will probably spend [Wednesday night] there as well," Cohen said of X's absence. "I don't think it's going to be an ongoing thing or a life-threatening situation. He's going to be alright."
