DMX is still alive. Yes, He Is On Life Support- Manager, Steve Rifkind Says

Published

Social media posts paying tribute to DMX broke out on Thursday night, stating that the American rapper passed away at the age of 50 after being taken off life support.

Comedian and actress, Luenell, also helped fuel the rumours when she posted to her stories that her friend was “gone” following his hospitalization for a reported drug overdose that triggered a heart attack last week.

“It is over, my friend is gone,” she wrote in the post. “Soar. Join the best that ever did it. RIP DMX.”

Clarifying her post, Luenell wrote, “When your spirit leaves and your organs fail you. The body becomes just a shell. One becomes wrapped in the lords arms. That’s what ‘I’ call gone. I’m sorry to all.”

A number of celebrities also paid tribute to the rapper believing he had passed away, including T.I’s wife Tiny, hip hop artists Amine and Lil Nas X, as well as wrestler Thea Trinidad.

After the confusion over his death, manager Steve Rifkind took to Instagram to share a video message to clarify that DMX is still alive, urging fans to stop posting “RIP” messages for the sake of his family.

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.”

Video of how job seeker Iniubong Umoren was killed by Uduak Frank Akpan has emerged.

Uduak Frank Akpan, the suspected killer of a job seeker, Iniubong Umoren has confessed how he killed his victim while being paraded by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command.

Serial killer Uduak Frank Akpan,  was paraded by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command to dismiss rumour of his death in custody, JomogNews Nigeria reports.

Uduak Frank Akpan who was paraded alongside his father said he killed Iniubong Umoren in self-defense and not intentionally.

His words: “I invited her for a job and I asked her whether she can work in a farm as secretary.

“I told her that I wanted to sleep with her first. She agreed on a condition that I will use condom which I also agreed to. She became furious when I started removing the condom, and she attacked me.

“I was bleeding so I needed to defend myself by hitting her which lead to her death,” he said.

However, Andrew Amiengheme, the Akwa Ibom State Police Commissioner, said it was necessary to have the press conference because of the rumour that was going around in the media that the suspect had committed suicide in the cell.

“I don’t know anywhere in the world that a suspect will be allowed to use trousers in the cell to the extent of killing himself with it.

“Social media that is supposed to be a tool that will work to the advantage of the police has become something that is working against them,” he said.
