Rapper Young Chris is “in bed resting” after collapsing during a concert in New York, according to his hip-hop pal Wale.
The former Young Gunz star, real name Chris Ries, sparked fears for his health when he suffered a seizure while onstage at Manhattan’s SOB’s club on Wednesday night.

He was conscious as he was treated by paramedics and subsequently admitted to a local hospital, and rapper Wale has reached out to fans on Twitter.com to update them on Young Chris’ condition.

In a post uploaded in the early hours of Thursday, Wale writes, “Young chris is ok, he’s in bed resting… please be respectful.”

Further details about what caused the star’s health issues were unavailable as WENN went to press.
