RHOA's Claudia Jordan apologizes for tweeting DMX DIED as he remains in coma after drug overdose
RHOA alum Claudia Jordan has apologized after mistakenly tweeting that DMX has died.
The rapper, 50, is currently in a coma after suffering a heart attack following a drug overdose last week.
Claudia – who appeared on season seven of RHOA in 2014 – sparked outrage when she tweeted: "Rest In Paradise DMX."
After facing a slew of backlash from the X Gon' Give It To Ya rapper's fans, she apologized and admitted she's read a false online report.
The Bravo star, 47, said, "I'm sorry" with a prayer hands emoji, before adding: "I deleted it. And apologized. I feel awful."
The mortified reality star said she “didn’t intend on hurting anyone or doing anything wrong".
"I understand how people are feeling as I am too. It's been heavy on my mind since he fell ill. But they're right. Not my place," Claudia tweeted.
"I just want to pray for the whole family & all his supporters that are in pain."
DMX is in hospital in New York, fighting for his life after suffering a heart attack on Friday.
His manager Steve Rifkind confirmed that the 50-year-old's condition remains unchanged as the family hold out hope.
Doctors will perform tests on Wednesday on DMX's level of brain function, which could be critical in determining his chance of recovery.
"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," Rifkind told NBC News on Tuesday night.
"Tomorrow he will undergo further tests on his brain function and his family will determine what's best from there," he added.
Members of his family were able to visit with him on Tuesday night after hundreds gathered outside the hospital in White Plain, New York, where he has been treated since Friday night.
Emotional photos showed his ex-wife Tashera Simmons and fiancee Desiree Lindstrom being comforted by friends and family.
Another mother of his children, Yadira Borrego, was also in attendance, along with DMX's sons, Xavier and Exodus.
The rapper has 15 kids with nine different women, he once confirmed to The Breakfast Club.
“Some of them have met others. I ain’t a total piece of s–t,” he said. “I ain’t have kids in the same county. Yeah, I slipped up. I got a few in New York; I got a few in Cali.”
DMX was reportedly left in a "vegetative state" after suffering a heart attack on Friday night and having to be revived three times.
Citing a source, ET reported how medics "tried to revive him twice in the house, and revived him again in the hospital."
The insider said: "This is a very difficult time for the family. They are standing by his bedside, holding his hand and praying. They are really in prayer mode."
The family of the rapper had announced in an email on Sunday that the vigil will be held outside the hospital from 5pm and asked that fans keep the rapper in their "thoughts, wishes and prayer."
In an email seen by AP, the family said: "On Friday night, April 2nd, 2021, our brother, son, father and colleague DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, was admitted to White plains (NY) Hospital, facing serious health issues.
"We ask that you please keep Earl/DMX and us in your thoughts, wishes and prayers as well as respect our privacy as we face these challenges."
DMX has reportedly struggled with drug addiction throughout his adult life – and has openly addressed the issues within his songs.
In 2016, Page Six reported DMX stopped breathing and had no pulse after suffering a drug overdose in a Westchester, New York, parking lot.
