DMX’s 15 children are all said to be flying to New York to be by his bedside as the rapper remains on life support.
Doctors at White Plains Hospital in New York have said the 50-year-old rapper’s prognosis is poor while family members have said his life hangs in the balance.
DMX was said to be off life support earlier Saturday but his lawyer later said that the news was a ‘misstatement’.
Sources told TMZ that the star, whose real name is Earl Simmons, overdosed around 11pm on Friday and was rushed to the hospital where he is in critical care.
One relative explained that paramedics tried to resuscitate him for 30 minutes when he was taken to hospital on Friday night, during which time he was deprived of oxygen for an extended period.
Doctors say the lack of oxygen severely affected his brain, with one family member saying ‘It’s not looking good.’
Although he has been described as having ‘some brain activity,’ doctors are still worried that he may not pull through.
