C-Knight is currently fighting for his life in the hospital after suffering a stroke, according to a new report from TMZ. Knight’s father, George Lee Washington Blount Jr., told the outlet that his son was hospitalized as a result of a scary blood sugar level stemming from diabetes in October. He had been receiving dialysis and suffered a stroke.
C-Knight also apparently went into cardiac arrest and his heart stopped. Doctors needed to resuscitate him and put him on life support at that point. In the time since, he’s been unresponsive, and medical staff have detected no signs of progress. The family is currently waiting on a crucial MRI scan that will determine whether there is any brain activity. They remain hopeful as they wait; however, if the worst-case scenario comes to be, they plan to keep him on life support for the time being as they decide on future plans.
