RIP DMX is currently trending on Twitter amid death rumour of the American rapper.
NewsOne Nigeria reports that news social media posts broke out — on Twitter and Instagram to be exact On Thursday, April 8, that stated that legendary Ruff Ryders rapper DMX is dead.
The news said DMX died at the age of 50 after being taken off of life support. However, those reports are a thousand percent false. According to his manager, DMX still remains on life support at White Plains Hospital in New York, United States.
This online news platform understands that thousands of fans began flocking to social media after Gossip On This published a story that said the famed rapper was no longer with us. On top of that, comedian Luenell posted an IG Story that read as if the rapper passed away. But, once people caught wind of her message, she deleted it. Other outlets such as Saint deleted “RIP RMX” tweets, and fellow music industry professionals removed their messages offering condolences to DMX, too.
DMX manager, Steve Rifkind, would soon post a video on Instagram confirming that he’s still alive. “Everybody, please stop with the posting with these rumors. DMX is still alive. Yes, he is on life support,” a very exhausted Rifkind said to the camera.
He continued: “But, please it’s not helping anybody by seeing these false rumors. Let the family relax for a night. You will be hearing a statement from the family sometime tomorrow.”
The manager closed, “I’ve been with DMX for the past three years. So, the only thing I ask is just stop with the rumors. He is still alive and he is on life support. Thank you.”
