Claudia Jordan has issued an apology after she posted an erroneous tweet that claimed DMX had passed.
As captured by The Shade Room, the “Out Loud with Claudia Jordan” host posted a tweet that read “Rest in Paradise DMX” along with several emojis including a broken heart, a crown, and praying hands.
Tuesday afternoon, the former star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” apologized for her tweet, as the rapper has not passed but is on life support following a heart attack last Friday.
“I’m sorry,” Jordan wrote.
When one fan commented, “It’s possible that she thought that the media had announced that DMX passed away,” she responded, “I did. I deleted it. And apologized. I feel awful.”
On Wednesday, DMX’s manager Steve Rifkind told TMZ that the MC remains in a coma at a New York hospital.
Rifkind says that on Wednesday, medical professionals will perform a battery of tests to determine his level of brain function.
After these tests are run, DMX’s family will determine the decisions they must make regarding his health.
Rifkind also set the record straight about his client, telling the outlet, “DMX is currently on life support and in a coma. There are multiple people with inaccurate information about his well-being and it is not helpful and productive. Tomorrow he will undergo further tests on his brain function and his family will determine what’s best from there. We appreciate your prayers and support.”
Although TMZ reported last Friday that DMX suffered an alleged drug overdose, his longtime lawyer Murray Richman told NBC News that he is unsure as to what caused the heart attack.
Our thoughts are with DMX’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.
