Eddie Van Halen Was 'On Brink Of Death'
Eddie Van Halen almost died when he experimented with a spicy detox technique last week. As previously reported, the 57-year-old guitarist was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery prompting the cancellation of Van Halen's remaining tour dates while he takes six month to recover. Now details of his injury have emerged, suggesting he was on the brink of death after trying a cayenne-based detox diet which caused his intestines to "explode". The controversial diet replaces food with a liquid mix of fruit, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. It promises fast weight loss, but almost killed Eddie instead. "Eddie's abdominal region was a disaster area," said a friend according to Radar Online. "The spicy treatment touched off an explosion in his intestines." It could have been a messy and humiliating end for the legendary guitarist, but fortunately he's overcome the illness and needs no further surgery to recover. "Janie was beside him the whole time and Wolf kept a constant vigil," said a source. "They were sick with worry because he was in so much pain, it really was touch and go. Valerie was scared to death Eddie was going to die. Although he's remarried, Eddie is still close to Valerie, and she was there for him the whole time."
