After suffering an overdose and heart attack on Friday night (4/2), DMX, aka Earl Simmons, remains in the hospital in serious condition. His lawyer, Murray Richman, had given a statement saying that the rapper was off life support and breathing on his own, but he later retracted it, telling PIX11 he had "been misinformed" and "misspoken."
A representative for DMX told TMZ, "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."
