Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Krayzie Bone says he 'fought for his life' in hospital

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Krayzie Bone says he 'fought for his life' in hospital

The rapper shared a health update after he was admitted to hospital

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper Krayzie Bone has shared a photo of himself in hospital as he revealed to followers he's been 'fighting' for his life.

The American rapper, whose real name is Anthony Henderson, took to Instagram yesterday (3 October) to show himself dressed in a hospital gown and hooked up to a series of wires and machines.

The post was the first Henderson had shared to his feed in a couple of weeks, and revealed that for the 'nine days straight' he had 'fought for life'.

Krayzie Bone was admitted to hospital in September.

Henderson didn't share in the post exactly health issues had caused him to 'fight for his life', but he indicated he was now through the worst of it as he continued: "I only won the battle this time because I know Jehovah God was with me every step of the way fighting for me."

The update came after the manager for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Bobby Dee, confirmed last month that Henderson had been hospitalized.

Dee didn't state why Henderson was admitted, but sources cited by AllHipHop claimed the rapper checked himself into a Los Angeles hospital on 22 September after he started coughing up blood.

Doctors were reported to have carried out a CAT scan and determined that Henderson had a bleeding artery in one of his lungs, prompting doctors to carry out an operation.

Amid the reports, rapper Layzie Bone, whose real name is Steven Howse, released a statement on behalf of the group, saying: "In this challenging moment, as the immediate and Bone Thugs family rallies behind my brother, we humbly ask for a moment of privacy.

"Our family is facing the unexpected hospitalization of Krayzie Bone with strength, and your prayers are a beacon of hope. Soon, we’ll share an update, but for now, let us come together and keep our love and thoughts focused on his recovery. "Your support means the world to us, and we truly appreciate your understanding during this time."

In his latest post, Henderson, who is 50 years old, encouraged his followers to 'never take life for granted'.
