UPDATEDx2: DMX’s representative has released this statement to TMZ about the current status of the rap star following his drug overdose yesterday.

“Last night Earl ‘DMX’ Simmons was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home. At this time he remains in ICU in critical condition. Earl has been a warrior his entire life. This situation represents yet another road he must conquer.”

“The Simmons Family appreciates the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl. Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world. It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need.”

UPDATED: TMZ reports that paramedics attempted to resuscitate DMX for 30 minutes, during which time he was deprived of oxygen, which doctors reportedly told his family has severely impacted the rap star’s brain. A source tells them that the situation is “not looking good.”

DMX’s children are also flying in to see him.

ORIGINAL: TMZ reports that DMX suffered a drug overdose at his home around 11PM on Friday night and has been hospitalized. His condition is said to be “not good” but he reportedly does have “some brain activity,” though another source tells them that he is in a “vegetative state.”

They add that the overdose apparently triggered a heart attack and the rapper was taken to a hospital in White Plains, NY. He is reportedly in the critical care unit.

DMX has struggled with substance abuse for years and has gone to drug rehab many times before including back in 2019.

Our best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to DMX and his family.
