DMX remains on life support, his manager confirmed late Thursday night, amid social media rumors that the legendary rapper had died.
“Stop with the rumors. He is still alive — and he is still on life support,” Steve Rifkind said in an Instagram video.
Rifkind said DMX’s family will be releasing a statement sometime on Friday.
“Let the family relax for a night,” the manager said.
DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has been at White Plains Hospital since Friday night after suffering a drug overdose that triggered a heart attack.
He was deprived of oxygen for 30 minutes as medics worked to revive him.
Multiple sources told TMZ that the father of 15 was left with “little brain activity.”
Since then, hundreds of fans have been keeping vigil outside the hospital — including his family, children and members of the Ruff Ryders motorcycle crew.
