More updates have come in about the condition of Nate Dogg, following his second stroke in less than a year’s time. While recent reports have been favorable in regarding to the veteran singer’s condition, it was a lot worse than people thought.
Nate’s cousin recently revealed to E! that the west coast legend was actually on life support in a Los Angeles-based hospital, receiving his food through a tube.
“He has suffered another stroke from his bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle,” said Lil Half Dead to E! “All we can do now is pray for him.”
However, after nearly two weeks, he’s doing a little better. He’s no longer on life support, but still requires the use of a feeding tube, reports E!
Nate had been bound to a wheelchair before this second stroke, as he recovered from a stroke he suffered last December that left him partially paralyzed.
His manager, Rod McGrew, said he was making excellent progress, and the recent events have been a major set back.
“He was making excellent progress with his recovery from the first stroke,” said McGrew. “This is an unfortunate setback. We welcome all prayers in support of Nate’s recovery but we would appreciate privacy.”
