DMX’s manager of three years, Steve Rifkind, has debunked rumours that the rapper is dead, confirming that the fifty-year-old is still on life support.
In a video uploaded on his Instagram page, Rifkind said, “Everybody, please stop with posting these rumors. DMX is still alive. Yes, he is on life support, but please, it’s not helping anybody by having them see these false rumors. Let the family relax for a night.”
Rifkind affirmed that the rapper’s family will publish a statement on Friday.
Rumours of DMX’s death trended on social media on Thursday night after comedian Luenell Campbell posted a message on her Instagram story which suggested that the rapper had passed away.
In the Instagram story, she wrote: “It is over. My friend is gone. Soar with the birds. Join the best that ever did it. RIP… DMX.”
