Romeo Santos Responds to Reports of a Heart Attack — Here’s What He Said

Over the weekend, reports surfaced about Romeo Santos suffering a heart attack ahead of Aventura’s reunion tour. Last night, the Dominican-American superstar responded to the concern his fans had over his health.

On Sunday (March 31) morning, multiple outlets were latching onto the unconfirmed reports that Santos, the lead singer of Aventura, had a heart attack. Most appeared to take the information from TikTok posts that were spreading the news like wildfire. According to one post, Santos had a heart attack while he was exercising. He was allegedly admitted to a private hospital in a “critical condition,” and his family was rushing to be by his side.

The news about Santos’ alleged heart attack soon reached his fans. Many of them expressed concern on X (formerly known as Twitter). One fan wrote, “What u mean romeo santos had a heart attack??? There’s no hope for the rest of us.” Another person wrote in Spanish, “They said that Romeo Santos had a heart attack and the one who almost had a heart attack was my mother.” 

The news eventually reached Santos himself. 

On social media, he’s known for keeping his private matters to himself. After seeing the rumor go too far, Santos released a rare statement about the alleged heart attack. He called out the people who were perpetuating a lie about his health in an emotional post on X. 

“You do not have the power, much less the wisdom, to hurt me,” Santos wrote. “If you think they are going to return tickets to the tour because of this false news, then it is even more GROSS than I thought. If you continue thinking so much about how to destroy me, you may go into cardiac arrest. God rebuke them.”

Romeo Santos’ Cerrando Ciclos Tour with Aventura kicks off on May 1 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA. Due to popular demand for the Aventura reunion, the tour added additional dates.
