LOS ANGELES - Krayzie Bone, a rapper in the hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, is reportedly fighting for his life in a hospital.
The news was confirmed by TMZ from sources who said that Krayzie was going into a second surgery soon in the hopes of stopping internal bleeding, reportedly stemming from a diagnosis of sarcoidosis, which causes inflammatory cells to form in different parts of the body.
The entertainment outlet said this started Friday when doctors discovered a bleeding artery in one of his lungs and operated on him. The 50-year-old rapper was reportedly placed in an "induced coma."
TMZ’s sources also said family members have been the only ones allowed to see him, and they're at his side now.
