R&B singer Ginuwine was fighting for his life after a dangerous stunt happened during a rehearsal at Criss Angel’s Magic with the Stars Show.
Earlier this week, the 51-year-old artist reportedly lost consciousness after submerging himself under water while holding his breath in a glass box with heavy chains on the outside, a Genwen representative confirmed with Fox News Digital.
“Genoin is fine, and has made a full recovery,” his representative revealed in a statement.
“He was conquering fear. Fortunately, everything is fine because he has been working with Criss Angel, the best in the business.”
In a video obtained by the Daily Mail, the “Pony” singer is seen being quickly pulled out of the water after being submerged in the cube for at least 10 seconds. Then he gasped for air, and the staff carried him and threw him to the ground.

“Are you well?” A staff member asked Ginuwine after a life-threatening stunt.
He nodded to confirm that he was conscious.
Paramedics were called to help the “In That Jeans” singer and indicated that he had fully recovered after his death from dangerous work, according to the media.

“It all happened so quickly, it was as if he had been taken advantage of in a fight,” the source said.
The source continued, “On the show he was trying to overcome his fear of being underwater because he couldn’t hold his breath for more than 15 seconds before trying the trick.”
“Although he failed at rehearsals, he continued to stunt the show, and everyone was crying.”
Ginuwine, whose real name is Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, took to his Instagram Thursday after his trick to let his fans know he’s doing well.
The artist commented on his message after sharing a selfie: “Laughing my ass, Prince said it’s the best lololol game.”
