Jean-Claude Van Damme Suffers Heart Attack On Set Of Latest Film

But JCVD Wins

Update: Jean-Claude Van Damme has dropkicked reports about a heart attacking, with his official website saying, “He did not suffer from a heart attack on the set of Weapon as reported on some websites.” On Facebook the third person statements continued, “Please, do not believe all what you read from rumors on any unofficial JCVD sites. Jean-Claude Van Damme is 100 percent healthy, training well for taking the fight and sending his fans and friends much love.”

Just one day after his fiftieth birthday, Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s body tried to fight him but couldn’t succeed. The action star suffered a minor heart attack on the set of his latest film, “Weapon,” currently shooting in New Orleans. He was rushed to hospital, shortly released and has returned with his family to Belgium to convalesce. He is expected to make a full recovery. No word yet on when “Weapon” will resume production.

Our thoughts are with Muscles From Brussels and his family and we hope he’s back to kicking ass on screen soon. And now might be a good time to catch up with “JCVD” if you missed it or dust off that copy of “Bloodsport” and give it another spin. [Twitch]
