DMX is in the hospital on life support after suffering a heart attack. The rapper’s lawyer, Murray Richman, told The Associated Press on Saturday evening that DMX was admitted to New York’s White Plains Hospital and that “he’s quite ill.”

Murray did not confirm reports that the 50-year-old rapper and actor had overdosed on drugs. He did not say what caused the heart attack.

DMX’s agency did not respond to NPR’s emailed request for comment.

News of DMX’s condition prompted an outpouring of prayer and support on social media from fans and celebrities, including rappers Missy Elliott, Rick Ross, Ja Rule, Ice T and Chance the Rapper.

In a statement to TMZ, a representative for DMX — who was born Earl Simmons — said his family appreciated “the overwhelming outpouring of heartfelt love, encouragement, support and prayers for Earl. Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world. It is reassuring to see his fans return that same passion and energy to him during his time of need.” Earl is someone whose life and music have been a source of inspiration and strength to so many people around the world.
