DMX is off life support and breathing on his own after suffering a heart attack. His attorney would not confirm a drug overdose took place as was previously reported. We have an update on this tragedy to provide new details.

TMZ reports that family members of DMX told them that paramedics tried to resuscitate him for half an hour. It is feared that his brain was deprived of oxygen for too long.

Doctors told the family the lack of oxygen severely impacted X’s brain. One family source said, “It’s not looking good.”

It was previously reported this morning that the legendary rapper was brain dead, but that report was conflicted by one that said he had some brain activity. Either way, it’s a terrible situation.

His children are reportedly flying out to see him as well. A source said that “it’s not looking good.”

Our thoughts are with DMX and his family during this time.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
