DMX has not regained any brain function nearly a week after his overdose, and the family may soon face a painful decision … whether to withdraw life support.
Sources with direct knowledge told TMZ that the battery from tests conducted on Wednesday X did not show an improvement in brain activity as he was rushed to hospital after suffering from OD late Friday night. As reported, he had little brain function after being deprived of oxygen for nearly half an hour.
DMX remains in a coma and, as we were told, the test results are “not good”. We are told that the family asked X’s longtime friend and manager, Steve Rifkindto fly to New York on Friday … another sign that hope is waning.
As we reported, there was massive demonstration of support for DMX. Hundreds of people – including his children, fiancée and the mothers of some of his children – gathered in front of the hospital on Monday night for a prayer vigil. We are told that there were only a limited number of family members allowed inside intensive care unit due to the limitations of COVID-19.
It is currently unclear when X’s family will decide on his medical future, although Rifkind told us earlier this week … the tests were critical and once the results were in “the family will determine which is the best out there.”
