Rapper Famous Dex’s recent performance at 1 Oak nightclub in West Hollywood was cut short after he suffered a seizure on stage. According to TMZ, Dex fainted while performing at the club Friday morning (Nov. 1). Video footage, which was obtained by the outlet, shows the rapper shaking while being held by his legs and shoulders by members of his crew. He was later carried backstage.
Rap-Up reports that the L.A. County Fire Department received a call about a person suffering a seizure at a club just before 2 a.m. They arrived shortly after, but the patient was not transported to the hospital. It is unclear if Famous Dex received medical attention. It is also uncertain why he was not taken to the hospital.
A rep for Dex released a statement to TMZ, revealing that the “Pick It Up” rapper is in “good spirits.” “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,” the rep said.
Fans of Famous Dex were worried and expressed concern about the rapper nearly a year ago after he passed out in the middle of a livestream. Back in April, he announced that he was kicking his use of lean and Xanax.
“I just wanna thank God,” Dex said at the time. “I don’t do xans, the lean. It’s over with, you know what I’m saying? God is good, God is great. I just wanna thank God for everything. I wanna thank my supporters. I wanna thank everyone for supporting me, everybody that knows me. God is so good. I’m relaxed, I’m chilling, I’m good . . . I’m doing it for me and my children. Get right. Dexter. Make the world get better.”
