Hip Hop fans will remember Jet Li from co-starring with DMX in Cradle 2 the Grave, as well as other films in which he kicks people.
Jet Li is 55 and used to look quite young for his age. Now ... well, he's the guy on the right.
So, apparently, Jet Li is suffering from "hyperthyroidism and spinal problems" and this is him now ❤️😓: pic.twitter.com/Ss0W2EL96D— simón (@StxNaty) May 19, 2018
It's like all the drugs DMX did went into Jet Li's body
Actually, the martial arts superstar suffers from hyperthyroidism (which isn't usually that serious) and spinal problems from his years of stunt work.
Li is still healthy enough to work and will be in an upcoming live-action version of Mulan.
Update: Jet Li's manager Steven Chasman says that Li is fine.
"We appreciate everyone’s concern. But Jet is completely fine," says Chasman. "There’s nothing wrong with him. There’s no life-threatening illness. He’s in great shape. It’s one picture and people are making these interpretations from it. If you took a picture of me at the wrong angle and wrong time of the day, I could look frail as well."
Here's another recent photo of Li, looking just as bald (he's playing the Emperor in Mulan) but not so old.
