BIG3 - Week Five

BIG3 - Week Five

Rumors of DMX’s death started circulating on Thursday night causing chaos surrounding DMX’s current condition. As #RIPDMX started popping up on celebrity timelines, DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind came to social media calling for a stop to the rumors. “Everybody, please stop posting with these rumors,” Rifkind says in the clip. “DMX is still alive. Yes, he is on life support, but please. It’s not helping anybody by seeing these false rumors. Let the family relax for a night. “You will be hearing a statement from the family sometime tomorrow. I’ve been with DMX for the past three years, so the only thing I ask is just stop with the rumors. He is still alive and he is still on life support.” A battery of tests was done on Thursday (April 8th) to assess X’s brain activity and to see how much damage was done during the 30 minutes he was without oxygen following a drug overdose and heart attack. Until the family makes an official statement prayers will continue for DMX.
