Kelly shared emojis of praying hands and a goat, which is presumably a reference to the phrase "Greatest of All Time (GOAT)."

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, is reportedly in ICU.

His attorney, Murray Richman, confirmed on Saturday that the rapper had had a heart attack. He said he did not know the cause.

"I'm very sad about it, extremely sad. He's like my son," Richman said.

"He's just a tremendous person, tremendous entertainer, tremendous human being. And so much to offer, so much to say. Not the run-of-the-mill rapper. A person of great depth," he said.

DMX has won two American Music Awards and been nominated for three Grammys. He's also appeared in a number of movies and TV shows, often playing himself. In 2017, he pleaded guilty to a charge of tax fraud and served a prison sentence from March 2018 to January 2019.
