DMX is not dead, contrary to reports on social media.
Late Thursday evening, comedian Luenell took to Instagram with a post declaring her friend DMX ‘gone’.
She quickly deleted her original post, then shared another one — clarifying that her interpretation of ‘gone’ doesn’t necessarily mean that DMX is ‘dead.’
Unfortunately, it was too late. Social media began running with the narrative that DMX had been taken off of life support and died.
Amid the confusion, DMX’s manager, Craig Brodhead, gave an update to reporter Lisa Evers.
According to Craig, DMX is still in the hospital on life support but his condition is “deteriorating rapidly.”
#breakingnews #DMX The rumors he has been taken off life support are false according to his long time manager/friend Craig Brodhead. He just left @WPHospital & says @DMX remains on life support but his condition is deteriorating rapidly. #hot97 @HOT97 #fox5ny @fox5ny pic.twitter.com/BjVISpGuf6
