EXCLUSIVE: DMX OD’S AND IN GRAVE-CONDITION!

DMX suffered a drug overdose Friday night and is currently in the hospital … and the prognosis is not good.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, the OD occurred at his home at around 11 PM. Our sources say the overdose triggered a heart attack.

DMX was rushed to a hospital in White Plains, New York and is in the critical care unit. We’re told he has “some brain activity.” Another source says he’s in a “vegetative state” and doctors have cautioned he may not make it.

As we have reported over the years, DMX, who was the cornerstone of the Ruff Ryders label, has battled substance abuse and has been to rehab several times. His last rehab stint back in 2019 came after he completed a 12-month sentence for tax evasion.

At the time, we were told DMX hadn’t relapsed, but checked himself into rehab out of fear he might again, as he felt temptations to use creep up on him again.

DMX made his return to the stagefollowing rehab in December 2019 when he hit Hakkassan in Las Vegas, chatting it up and taking photos with fans before he hit the stage.

During the Vegas show, he took a moment to tell fans, “When you fall down, get back up, everyone here has been through some s**t and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you.”

Last we saw him perform was in July 2020, when X faced off with Snoop Dogg in a Verzuz battle which saw more than 500K viewers tune in, proving he still had an incredible ability to bring an audience.

We will, of course, update as information becomes available regarding his current situation.

DEMI LOVATO OD WAS LIFE AND DEATH

0726-demi-lovato-getty06-3Demi Lovato could have died Tuesday from her overdose — it was that serious — sources connected to the singer tell TMZ.

We’re told the 911 call did not come a minute too soon, because Demi was in dire straits. “She could have died,” said a source with firsthand knowledge. Demi was unconscious when she was discovered at around 11:30 AM and the 911 call was placed.

TMZ broke the story … Demi received Narcan to counter the effects of opioids. As we reported, Demi and those who were at the house refused to disclose the drug or drugs that caused her to OD.

TMZ obtained the 911 call … in which the person at Demi’s home asked the dispatcher if the emergency vehicles could come without sirens — presumably because they wanted to keep the OD on the down-low. The dispatcher informed the caller the sirens would stay on.

Demi remains hospitalized. We’re told those around her want her to enter a rehab facilitywhen she’s released, but ultimately the decision is squarely hers.
