A few days ago it was reported that Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange, one of the funniest and fucked up people in the entertainment business, had been rushed to the hospital. Now we know why…a suicide attempt. If that wasn’t sad and tragic enough as it is, the manner in which Lange tried to do himself in is ever more disturbing: he stabbed himself 9 times.

Reports Page Six:

Lange’s frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said. Lange sustained six “hesitation wounds” and three deep plunges. A source close to Lange’s management team confirmed that the Howard Stern sidekick stabbed himself, adding that his mother had come to visit him that day to drop off food. Surgeons managed to save Lange despite heavy bleeding.

Here’s hoping Artie Lange can fight back whatever demons are haunting him to find some inner peace.
