*TMZ is reporting that DMX was rushed to the hospital with food poisoning Wednesday night (Jan. 25).
According to the website, the rapper was boarding a plane from Miami, en route to Charlotte, North Carolina, when he became violently ill.
When the plane landed in Charlotte, DMX hopped in a limo and was rushed to Gastonia Memorial Hospital, just outside of Charlotte.
He was treated for four hours in the emergency room before he was sent home. He is expected to make a full recovery.
DMX told TMZ.com that he had eaten some bad shrimp in Miami, just before leaving his baby’s mother’s house.
Tyrese twitpics his foot in the hospital
*At first there were reports that some bad seafood did Tyrese in on Tuesday night.
The singer was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital with what TMZ first reported as food poisoning. He posted a twitpic of his feet in the hospital bed [see photo above] and the message, “ER…pray for me.”
But Tyrese later tweeted that his ailment was actually “exhaustion.”
‘I’m not food poisoned and there is no virus. I’m just exhausted,” he wrote.

*”Skating with the Stars” contestant Brandon Smith will return to the rink next week after being rushed to the hospital on Monday while on set.
TMZ reported that Smith would not appear on last night’s live show because he was taken to a hospital after throwing up and experiencing shortness of breath.
Sources said a 911 call was made at 11:43 a.m. from the CBS lot in Los Angeles where the show is filmed.
Smith — who stars in “Sonny with a Chance” with Demi Lovato — was reportedly sick when he arrived to the studio. At 1:30 p.m., a rep for the show told TMZ: “He was throwing up on set and we think it is food poisoning.”
“He was taken away in an ambulance today on set,” Smith’s rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter, adding that the hospital sent him home “to rest.”
The rep also confirmed later that Smith, who missed this week’s chance to perform due to the illness, suffered from something viral or from food poisoning.
The Disney actor hopes to make a triumphant return for the next show.
“We expect him to be back on the ice next Monday!” the rep added.
Coincidentally, Smith’s incident was not the lone drama plaguing the production on Monday. Skater Brooke Castille sliced her finger open while practicing with Olympic gold medal skier Jonny Mosely. She was also taken to a nearby hospital where she received stitches.
