No that’s not a picture of Gabriel Iglesias, that is late rap legend Heavy D. Rap legend Heavy D’s death has swept the web and without the disclosure of preliminary cause of death people are trying to figure out how a celebrity, or anyone for that matter, can seek help of a doctor one day and not wake up the next.
“He said he had a touch of pneumonia, maybe from traveling. He just got back from England,” cousin Ruddy Phillips, 50, told The News after speaking with the entertainer’s dad in Mount Vernon, N.Y.
Heavy D, whose real name was Dwight Arrington Myers, was taken by ambulance to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday; he died 90 minutes later, police said.
