Rapper Famous Dex Suffers Seizure On Stage During Show in L.A.

Prayers up to rapper Famous Dex after he suffered a medical emergency.

Chicago rapper Famous Dex reportedly suffered a severe seizure while performing at a show in Los Angeles in the early hours of Friday morning. According to TMZ, Dex was on stage during a gig at 1 Oak in West Hollywood when he suddenly collapsed and fainted. Frightening video shows a member of his crew cradling him while he shakes on the floor. The site reported that the emergency happened around 2 a.m., but Famous Dex was never transported to the hospital even after the L.A. County Fire Department arrived. Around 10:30 Friday morning, the rapper’s team has since released a statement.

“We wish Famous Dex a speedy recovery after his epileptic seizure last night. He is currently in good spirits and hopes to return back to finishing his new album. He thanks all his fans for their prayers and well wishes.”

This isn’t the first health scare for the “Pick It Up” rapper, and it was only last year that he passed out while streaming live on Instagram. At that time, he was reportedly trying to fight drug addiction, and months later told his fans that he was sober. The 26-year-old has three children who he once said were his motivation to get clean.

Both Jay Ritch and Rich the Kid were in the building during last night’s incident and can be seen helping Dex while he was seizing. There was no indication that drugs played a factor in this latest emergency, but regardless, we wish Famous Dex a speedy recovery.
