Jean Claude Van Damme Suffers Heart Attack On Set Of WEAPON

Just one day after his fiftieth birthday reports are surfacing that Belgian action hero Jean Claude Van Damme has had a heart attack on the set of his latest film, Weapon.Action man Jean Claude Van Damme has suffered a minor heart attack on the set of his new movie "Weapon," according to reports.

A day after celebrating his 50th birthday on Monday, the Belgian martial arts star collapsed on the set of the film in New Orleans and was briefly hospitalized, according to website
Production on the movie has been put on hold to allow Van Damme time to recover from his medical emergency at home in Belgium.
Sources tell the website it looks as if the movie star will make a full recovery.
Van Damme's publicist and the producers of the film had yet to respond to requests for a comment when this went to press.
The film moved from its Romanian production base last week to do three days of shooting in New Orleans, where production was stalled due to unexplained 'complications'. And word has now gotten out that those complications involved Van Damme having what appears to be a minor heart attack before shooting any of his scenes. He was admitted to hospital in New Orleans briefly before being released and returning to Belgium. His wife and mother of two of his children, Gladys Portugues, joined him in New Orleans following the event and it now appears that he will make a full recovery.
Twitch is reaching out to get official word on this from the producers of the film and Van Damme's spokespeople and will update as soon as we hear back. Our best wishes for his ongoing health.
