DMX rapper disabled life support after heart attack

DMX was taken off life support Saturday afternoon and is breathing alone in a Westchester hospital after suffering a heart attack, his attorney told Page Six.

The 50-year-old “X Gon Give It to Ya” rapper was taken to White Plains Hospital around 11 pm Friday from his nearby home and was initially put on a respirator, attorney Murray Richman said.

“They took him off life support around 3 pm,” Richman said. “Right now, he is breathing alone. A lot of people are gathering at the hospital. “

DMX’s first wife and at least some of his 15 children are in the hospital with him, the attorney said.

The attorney could not confirm a TMZ report that the rapper, who was born Earl Simmons, suffered the heart attack after an apparent overdose.

“I refuse to attest to that because I have no personal knowledge,” said the lawyer.

The dire news about the “Where the Hood At” rapper sparked a stir on social media, where celebrities asked for prayers for the Mount Vernon native who grew up in Yonkers.
