Nate Dogg's cousin Donald Smith has told E! News that the superstar's condition is worse then people think.
According to Smith, the 39-year-old rapper / producer, real name Nathaniel Dwayne Hale was on a life support machine in a Los Angeles-area hospital with a feeding tube in his mouth.
Nate's situation has since improved and he has been taken off life support but still requires a feeding tube, according to Smith.
"He has suffered another stroke from his bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle," he continued. "All we can do now is pray for him."
Our thoughts are with Nate Dogg and his family.
