Roughly two hours later, some more bad news was revealed by DrDisrespect's Art Director. It appears he is suffering from heart issues, and may require surgery.

Thorsten Denk explains: "I have ten times as many heart enzymes in my blood than considered OK, which could be a sign for a serious issue. Hospital will decide until tomorrow if I'll need heart surgery asap. Cheers guys and thanks for all the kind words. I'll keep you updated."

For those who don't know, Thorsten is referring to Cardiac Enzymes, which are biomarkers that tell doctors when someone's heart is damaged.

DrDisrespect took to Twitter to call on his fans to show Thorsten Denk some love during this difficult time.

"Let's return the favor and show him some love through this. Nothing but power Thorsten."

We hope Thorsten has a speedy recovery in the hospital, and all the best goes out to his loved ones during this difficult time.
