Jean Claude Van Damme suffers minor heart attack

Is the Muscles from Brussels down for the count?

Just one day after his 50th birthday, sources have told E! News that '80s relic Jean-Claude Van Damme suffered a heart attack while shooting his latest all-kick-boxing (we assume) extravaganza, Weapon.

PHOTOS: Movies From the Future!

The production was running smoothly in Romania until last week, when the cast and crew flew to New Orleans for three days of filming. Shortly after setting up shop, unspecified complications put the entire shoot on hold.

Well, those complications have since been specified: JCVD is said to have suffered a minor heart attack.

According to TwitchFilm.net, which first reported on Van Damme's condition, the star was briefly admitted to a hospital, where he was joined by his wife, Gladys Portugues. The duo reportedly flew back to Belgium after his release, and he is expected to make a full recovery. Get well soon!

I actually prefer his movies to Steven Segals

At least he's still in somewhat good shape. Seems like Seagal has had too many donuts.

down for the count?...... '80s relic.........latest all-kick-boxing (we assume) extravaganza.
The man suffers a life-threatening malady and THIS is how they write about him? Snide fuckers.

Re: Jean Claude Van Damme suffers minor heart attack

FWIW, he's denying this on facebook and his official website.

Hours ago, I read a rumor online about me suffering heart attack!!
Please, do not believe all what you read from rumors on any unofficial JCVD sites. Jean-Claude Van Damme is 100% healthy, training well for taking the fight and sending his fans & friends much love. — JCVD

Re: Jean Claude Van Damme suffers minor heart attack

Does he always talk about himself in third person?

Re: Jean Claude Van Damme suffers minor heart attack

^ Not surprised if he does. The primary reason he didn't want to be in The Expendables was due to his giant ego.

Re: Jean Claude Van Damme suffers minor heart attack

So it's BS? I certainly hope so. Despite the Expendables fiasco, I think he's awesome. And he seemed to be on a nice comeback with JCVD and Universal Soldier Regeneration.

USA-VANDAMME

Van Damme dismisses heart attack reports

Los Angeles, Oct 20 WENN - Jean-Claude Van Damme has assured fans he's ``100 per cent healthy'' following reports he suffered a minor heart attack.

``Hours ago, I read a rumour online about me suffering heart attack!,'' the action star wrote on his official Facebook page.

``Please, do not believe all what you read from rumours on any unofficial JCVD sites. Jean-Claude Van Damme is 100 per cent healthy, training well for taking the fight (sic) and sending his fans & friends much love.''

The star was said to have been hospitalised after collapsing on the set of his new film Weapon just a day after his 50th birthday on Monday.

Is he still a huge cokehead? Dude was a legendary cainehound...cat would snort mountains of cola in a sitting. That's not good for the heart...so I've heard.

He used the third-person for effect. He doesn't always talk like that. Hell, he didn't fully talk like that in that snippet itself.

The cocaine probably didn't help.
