Ruff Ryders producer Swizz Beatz has provided fans with an update on longtime friend DMX following widespread coverage of his hospitalization this week.
Swizzy assured fans they had not lost the Dark Man X on Twitter Tuesday (February 9).
The latest reports claim DMX narrowly missed losing his life after being found pulseless last night (February 8).
The “Party Up” artist was reportedly no longer breathing by the time Yonkers cops responded to a call outside the Ramada Inn where he fell unconscious. The officers immediately began performing CPR on the rapper’s lifeless body after arriving to the scene — and his pulse returned roughly a minute later. (NY Daily News)
Details about X’s initial condition and hospitalization surfaced online early Tuesday (February 9).
Sources close to DMX tell us he was outside his room at the Ramada Yonkers in New York Monday evening when he started complaining of shortness of breath and pain in his chest. We’re told the rapper has a history of asthma — so his entourage sprung to look for his inhaler — but it was too late … he had collapsed to the floor. We’re told an ambulance was called, and X was transported to a nearby hospital … where he’s currently receiving breathing treatments. (TMZ)
In October, cops arrested X for a child support-related matter.
A warrant was issued for Simmons’ arrest on a contempt of court charge in July, according to the Westchester County Clerk’s office. County police confirmed they and Yonkers police arrested him at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning at a Yonkers residence. (USA Today)
