Xzibit’s Newborn Son Passes Away

Sadly, rapper and host of Pimp My Ride, Xzibit lost his newborn son, Xavier Kingston Joiner on May 26. Xavier was born prematurely on May 15, and died of complications due to underdeveloped lungs. Xzibit shared the news with his fans on his MySpace blog,

AS you all know, I shared with you the announcment of my newborn son Xavier Kingston Joiner on may 15th and also informed you that he was born prematurly. well this week was extremly difficult for him because his lungs were not strong enough to handle regular oxygen on his own. Xavier passed away this morning at 3:30am and I must tell you this, It is unatural for a parent to bury a child. I am telling you this because of the same reason I tell you when im having great times, life is too short to be fake. Hold on to your kids if you have them, protect them and show them you love them everyday you wake up and see them, dont take a second you get to hug them teach them and care for them for granted. You can have all the material wealth in the universe but it is NOTHING compared to having your family. I am thankful for all of my blessings and im not one to question God’s perfect plan, so I leave you with great love and thanks for the love that was sent earlier on my pervious blog to my son. Of course I need to take some time and handle my loss, STAY FOCUSED PEOPLE. Its not promised to any of us.

    Oh god what a horrible story. This hits close to home for me. My niece and nephew were born last October at just over 1 and a half lbs each. They were born at 26 weeks. We really didn’t think they would survive but now it’s 7 months later and they are both doing really well. Reading this though just brings me back to the uncertainty of when they were born. My thoughts go out to his family.

    I read this story on a dutch site and saw that Scoop, JustJared and other english sites didn’t yet announced this news,
    so that’s why I translated it and send it to Scoop.

    I’m sorry to hear of your loss. Best wishes to you all.

  • I’m sorry to hear this, what an awful event. I hope he and his family will be strong throughout this and will find happiness again, as well as maybe having a second child.

    RIP Xavier and watch over your daddy.

    My oldest son was born prematurely and had RDS. He also blew a hole through his lung and had a chest tube.

    I so wish it would have turned out well for them too.

  • this is just so sad. 🙁
