Rapper DMX hospitalised after ‘suffering bronchitis for two days’.

DMX has reportedly been hospitalised
after a suspected asthma attack. TMZ reports the rapper, real name Earl Simmons, was found ‘not breathing’
and ‘without a pulse’ in New York on
Monday night. A source told the site he was outside
his hotel room at Ramada Inn when he
began complaining of a pain in his
chest. Police responded to a call about
an ‘unconscious male’ just after 6pm,
and when they arrived on the scene they began CPR until his pulse
returned. Simmons is said to have received
treatment at a nearby hospital.

TMZ add that DMX ‘appears to be in a
stable condition and at this time, no
criminal charges are expected.’ Metro.co.uk have contacted the
rapper’s rep for comment, but X has
since confirmed to TMZ that he
‘remembers having shortness of breath
after suffering bronchitis for a couple
of days’. When the news of Simmons’ condition
first broke, rapper Ja Rule tweeted
‘Prayers up for my brother’.
