Patrice O'Neil suffers a stroke
Beloved comedian Patrice O’Neal suffered a stroke last Wednesday. The news was not confirmed until this morning on The Opie and Anthony Show. Fellow comic Jim Norton revealed the tragic news on air, sending his condolences to his friend.
According to Norton, Patrice's health condition is currently a mystery, as details about his state of recovery are still unknown.
"We don't know how he is. We don't know how he's going to be," said Norton. "I didn't want to do this by myself. I wish we had more news for you."
UpRoxx reported that Norton had made the announcement on air because he didn't want the information leaked by someone alien to Patrice.
"We wanted it to come from us," he said.
According to MSNBC, Patrice has received some words of kindness from avid fans. An email account, LoveForPatrice@gmail.com, has been set up for those who want to write something endearing.CelebrityCafe
