Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Claudia Jordan apologized for erroneously tweeting that ailing rapper DMX had died.
“I’m sorry,” Jordan, 47, tweeted Tuesday alongside prayer hands and broken heart emojis.
In a reply to a fan, Jordan said she had read a report online falsely claiming DMX was dead following his recent drug overdose and heart attack.
“I deleted it. And apologized. I feel awful,” she added of her original tweet.
Jordan, who only appeared on Season 7 of the Bravo series (2014-2015), later clarified that 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,” she wrote. “I just want to pray for the whole family & all his supporters that are in pain.”
The radio host’s mea culpa came shortly after she posted, “Rest in Paradise DMX,” drawing outrage from the Grammy nominee’s fans.
Page Six reported on Saturday that DMX, 50, had overdosed, which triggered a heart attack.
He is currently fighting for his life in a White Plains, New York, hospital, where fans have held vigils for him. His manager Nakia Walker told the New York Times on Sunday that he was in a “vegetative state.” Another manager, Steve Rifkind, told TMZ on Wednesday that DMX was still on life support and scheduled to undergo a battery of brain tests.
The “Party Up” performer has battled drug addiction for years and last checked into rehab in October 2019.
