05/17/2018: Patty’s family tells us she has unfortunately passed away after being taken off life support.
Blac Chyna‘s longtime assistant and friend is in a coma after suffering a medical emergency at Chyna’s salon, and Chyna’s exes are stepping up to help her and her family with medical bills.
Sources close to the situation tell us Lorena “Patty” Hernandez was at Lashed when she suffered a severe brain hemorrhage and fell unconscious – she was five months pregnant at the time.
A spokesperson for L.A. City Fire says they received a 911 call from Chyna’s Encino, CA salon at 5:20 PM on December 18. The call came from a wireless phone inside the salon.
We’re told an ambulance rushed Hernandez to Cedars Sinai Medical Center and transferred to the ICU where doctors were able to stabilize her. Tragically, after an intensive month-long hospital stay, Patty fell into a coma last week.
We’re told doctors urged Hernandez to terminate the pregnancy which she did right before the new year.
Both of Chyna’s exes, Rob Kardashian and Tyga, have stepped up to help Patty. Tyga donated $5,000 and Rob gave $10,000 to a GoFundMe set up to assist Hernandez and her three children.
Earlier last year, Hernandez suffered a stroke that left her partially blind – doctors diagnosed her with an arteriovenous malformation, an abnormal connection between arteries and veins that occurs at birth.
We’re told doctors advised Hernandez to terminate her pregnancy and stop working to undergo several years of radiation therapy. Since there was no guarantee the treatment would be effective, and Hernandez is the sole provider for her three children, we’re told she decided to keep the baby and continue working for Chyna.
