Deftones' Chi Cheng hospitalized with pneumonia

Saturday, June 16, 2012 7:24 AM PT


Two days after flying home to California from New Jersey, where he has been undergoing treatment at a brain injury clinic for over a year, Deftones bass player Chi Cheng has been hospitalized with an infection.

Yesterday the following was posted online via Cheng's mother, Jeanne Marie Cheng:

"[Chi] just got home last night from NJ and is in ER with something serious going on... pneumonia and don't know what else. Not good!"

Hours later, Gina (of OneloveforChi.com) posted additional update:

"Chi is in ICU on three antibiotics for pneumonia. Blood pressure and oxygen are both low. Please send healing."


Update #1 - A new post on Oneloveforchi.com suggests that Chi's condition has improved slightly.

Why cannot Lambgoat edit the garbage in the comments section? AIDs to his family? This guy is seriously fcked!!! Lambgoat need to rethink why they exist?

anonymous

I have to ask and i know tons of other people would like to know why the fck are financial woes like a measley $70,000 stopping him or was stopping him from getting help? A 13 year old Emo band can raise $5000 in a weekend. Im not getting this..The band sold over what 9 million records and tour a lot. What was the issue here?

anonymous

4 members of band = $17,000 each? To help this fcking guy?

anonymous
6/16/2012 11:17:15 PM

it is really fcking immature that little pssys from the 7th grade can talk shit about a guy that is really struggling about hanging on to life there is really nothing at all to be talking shit about fck YOURSELVES

6/17/2012 3:22:06 AM

If this was about someone in emmure, you gays wouldn't stop talking shit. Nice feelings you c-cksuckers. Go cry in a corner.

anonymous
6/17/2012 1:38:44 PM
The fact that Emmure is shit has absolutely NOTHING to do with showing someone(regardless if they are in a band or not) a little sympathy dumbshit!

6/17/2012 1:51:57 PM
what the fck dude get better already, damn.

anonymous
6/17/2012 7:03:48 PM
This is insane, it sounds like some dirt ball on the plane got him sick or the hospital didn't do a good enough job keeping the area sterile.
Not good at all, not good. Hopefully he'll make a recovery...
