Artie Lange’s hospitalization earlier this week was reportedly a result of nine self-inflicted stab wounds he suffered after he attempted to commit suicide.
According to a New York Post Page Six source, the troubled comic and “Howard Stern Show” regular attempted to take his own life over the weekend.
Artie Lange was found by his mother in his New York apartment on Saturday morning, who then placed the 911 call.
Lange reportedly suffered six “hesitation wounds” and three deep plunges.
Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don't forget how great he is,” his coworker, Howard Stern, said.
Stern also spoke about Lange’s long battle with drug addiction, saying, “We all have our demons. Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He’s a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don’t forget how great he is.”
