Romeo Santos Claps Back After Heart Attack Rumors: ‘You Don’t Have The Power To Hurt Me’

Romeo Santos is alive and well after rumors about him being hospitalized due to a heart attack circulated on the Internet over the weekend. In an official statement posted to his X account, the King of Bachata addressed the rumors—and indicated he knows who started the gossip.

“You don’t have the power to hurt me, much less the wisdom to do me wrong,” he expressed on Sunday (March 31). “If you think that they are going to return the concert tickets because of this fake news, then you are more dumb than what I thought. If you’re still thinking of ways to destroy me, then you might end up having a cardiac arrest.”

News about Santos’ health circulated online and on social media after various Spanish-language outlets reported that the Dominican artist experienced a cardiac arrest while working out.

Billboard has reached out to Santos for further comment.

In other news, Santos—well and alive—is ready to hit the road with Aventura on their Cerrando Ciclos 2024 tour.

Produced by CMN Events, the 35-date trek will kick off May 1 in Sacramento and wrap in Hidalgo, TX on Aug. 3, with two additional dates in Canada. The timeless bachata group — known for hits such as “Obsesion,” “Dile al Amor” and “Un Beso” — will also make pit stops in key U.S. cities including Los Angeles, New York and Miami.

Santos and Aventura last joined forces just months before the coronavirus pandemic for their 2020 Inmortal Tour, which grossed $25.8 million and sold 189,000 tickets among 15 shows between Feb. 5 and March 10, 2020, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.
