Rap Legend and Actor DMX Suffers Heart Attack dies at 50.
DMX, the New York rapper behind such iconic songs as "Party Up (Up in Here)" and "X Gon' Give It to Ya" and the star of action movies Exit Wounds, Cradle 2 the Grave and Romeo Must Die, died Friday. He was 50.
#DMX, whos real name is Earl Simmons, spent a week in the ICU after suffering from a massive heart attack. Early reports speculated that DMX's condition may have been brought about because of an alleged drug overdose. But the news blog #MTONews spoke with a member of the Simmons family who believes that it was NOT drugs that caused the heart attack. >> https://mtonews.com/dmx-received-covid-vaccine-days-before-heart-attack-family-says-no-drugs-exclusive. <<
In an #interview with a hip hop news media blog #MTONews spoke with DMX' family member who relayed the information that dmx received the COVID vaccine about a week before he suffered from the heart attack.
The official quote by the family member who spoke with MTO NEWS gave this statement: "[DMX] got the vaccine when they opened it up to people over 50. He got it so that he could go travel and perform, stuff like that."
Time will only tell as an autopsy will likely be performed and if the statements of the alleged drug overdose prove to be false information I am sure the family will be pursuing evidence linking any adverse reactions after taking the jab. The state of #Newyork where [`DMX`] resides, opened up the COVID-19 vaccinations for people over the age of 50 in mid #March.
The family member eluded to the notion that DMX heart attack could have been a #reaction to the vaccine.
The family member explained, "Everyone [in the news] keeps saying that [DMX] had a drug overdose. How do they know. I'm in the family and no doctor told me anything about an overdose."
The quoted family member is FURIOUS about the speculation surrounding DMX drug use. The last time [DMX] made news headlines regarding drug use was 2 years ago when he played a festival in #Virginia and was found in his car in a fast food parking lot by police after a rough weekend.
Evidently since that isolated event he had been clean and sober.
[She] told #MTONews, "Yes he had past issues with drugs. But nobody knows that he had an OD. It's f**cked up that its being reported like that."
She told #MTONews that she - and the family - are considering taking legal action against news publications prematurely concluding that DMX suffered a drug overdose.
