Words of Support

XZIBIT’s newborn baby son Xavier Kingston, who was born prematurely, died yesterday – just days after being born. Xzibit shares his pain on his myspace page:

“As you all know, I shared with you the announcement of my newborn son, Xavier Kingston Joiner, on May 15th and also informed you that he was born prematurely. Well, this week was extremely difficult for him because his lungs were not strong enough to handle regular oxygen on his own.

Xavier passed away this morning at 3:30 a.m. and I must tell you this; it is unnatural for a parent to bury a child. I am telling you this because of the same reason I tell you when I’m having a great time — life is too short to be fake. Hold on to your kids if you have them, protect them, and show them you love them every day you wake up and see them, don’t 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 world, but it is NOTHING compared to having your family.

I am thankful for all of my blessings and I’m not one to question God’s perfect plan, so I leave you with great love and thanks for all the love that was sent earlier on my previous blog to my son. Of course, I need to take some time and handle my loss. STAY FOCUSED PEOPLE. It’s not promised to any of us.”

The loss of a child is truly devastating. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to Xzibit and his family at this time.

    He looks handsome. Is he single now? His blog and photos were found at dating site “W e a l t h y l o v I n g . co m” last week. I am wondering what kind of relationship he is seeking on that site.

    Damn man!! I wish Xzhibit and his family the best. It is definately a tragedy and I pray that they are able to eventually repair the damage this has and probably will cause and try again for another child when the time is right. Keep GOD in your heart and in your home Xzibit and all will be fine.

    How heartbreaking, condolences to him and his family.

    It’s so ridiculous when you read sad news like this and you pop over to comment and you still see these unnecessary post about him having an account at or promoting some online date site, that seems so inappropriate and unnecessary.

I pray that god grants X and his family the peace that surpasses all understanding..BIG UPS TO X FOR BEING A MAN AND BEING THERE FOR HIS FAMILY…HE’S KEEPING IT REAL RIGHT NOW!!! I PRAY OTHERS WILL DO THE SAME !!!!
