DMX is on life support but breathing on his own after suffering a heart attack following a reported overdose on Friday.

The 50-year-old rapper’s lawyer, Murray Richman, issued an update on the star’s condition on Saturday, revealing he faces tough days ahead.

“He is in the hospital as a result of a heart attack,” the lawyer told PIX 11 News on Saturday. “He has been taken off life support system and is breathing on his own, but we are concerned.”

Sources have since told Billboard DMX is back on life support, as of Saturday night.

Richman didn’t confirm if a drug overdose was the cause of the heart attack.

After the news about DMX, real name Earl Simmons, was reported, many celebrities offered their support and asked fans to pray for the rapper.

“DMX prayed over me once and I could feel his anointing. I’m praying for his full recovery,” Chance the Rapper wrote on Twitter, while Ja Rule added: “Prayers up for my brother DMX.”

“Prayers for DMX and his family,” Missy Elliott wrote, and Lil Kim added: “Come on X plzzzz. We need you. Prayers all the way up for you bro,” while fellow rap veteran LL Cool J tweeted: “Today is 4/3/21 – it’s only right that we celebrate the talent and genius of my brother @DMX on the 4,3,2,1 song. We Love you X get well fast.”
