On Monday, the latest report from TMZ revealed that some of the rapper’s children have touched down in White Plains, New York to visit their father. DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, has fifteen children. It was not specified how many of his kids are present at the hospital. They are reportedly only allowed to visit him one at a time due to COVID-19 protocols. Simmons’ mother and fiancée have both already visited him in the ICU. 

The report notes that X still has little brain activity as he has been reported to be in a “vegetative state”. His chances of recovery are very slim.
