WTF Happened to Eddie Kane?!

the-five-heartbeats-original1

Y’all I’m sad to report that Eddie Kane is actually Eddie Kane now. Like, I thought it was just a movie. My heart is broken. Take a walk with me.

So y’all remember the The Five Heartbeats, right? Of course you do. It’s a classic movie. So if you remember The Five Heartbeats, you remember Eddie Kane. Let’s be honest-he was our favorite. He was the lead singer, he was smooth, his voice was unique. We knew he was fighting demons, but we wanted him to win. We wanted him to win so bad.

But like many of the greats, alcohol and drugs got the best of him, and ultimately contributed to his downfall. After years of battling addiction, Eddie found God and got his life right. That at least gave us peace.

But now, a pic of actor Michael Wright has made its way to social media and I’m all discombobulated.  I’m not quite sure what to say.

Is he OK? I need answers!

  13. Michael. Like you said in the 5 Heart Beats movie, ” You be amazed what God and the program of Narcotics Anonymous can do”. Come home, brother, we’ve been praying for the addict who still suffers at each and every meeting around the world.
    From an addict named Rick.😊

  14. The five heartbeats movie gave. Us as their audiance. Pleasure to watch. Hate to see that Michael Write has become his character “Eddie Kane”. Our prayers are with you you . Maybe. a wealthy celebrity should reach out and offer him assistance!

  15. My prayers goes out to him ! All these movie stars actors rappers ect should reach out and help him the best and only help I can give and offer is a prayer to the one and Mighty God in heaven that can do all things!

  16. He’s always struggled with drug use for years. He lives in Hells Kitchen and I would often see him going to the store looking dishelved. It has progressively gotten worse. I feel for the brother. He is very talented and charismatic. If I run into him again I’ll try to help him. Black lives matter. White People stepped in to help Robert Downey Jr. Let’s have some Black people step in to help this brother.

  17. DO YOU ALL KNOW FOR A FACT THAT HE IS A DRUG ADDICT? I DON’T THINK SO BECAUSE THAT IS ONLY THE ASSUMPTION! NO EVIDENCE OR ACTUAL TRUTH OF IT.
    HE’S OLDER NOW AND VERY THIN AS HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN, WHO KNOWS FOR A FACT HE HAS ALCOHOL AND/OR DRUG ISSUES?? HE IS 60 YEARS OLD AND AS SAID, HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A VERY THIN PERSON AND WHEN YOU GET OLDER, IT SHOWS IN A HARSH WAY…HE LIVES IN NY SO HE’S ON HE SUBWAY…OK. BUT YOU ALL ARE TALKING AS IF HE’S CURLED UP IN A BOX ON THE STREET WITH A SYRINGE HANGING OUT OF HIS VEIN!
    HE JUST LOOKS OLD, TIRED AND SAD…NOT LIKE A DRUG ADDLED ALCOHOLIC, CRIPES, GET SOME FACTS BEFORE YOU START PRAYING ” HELP HIM JESUS, HALLELUJAH!! “AND JUDGING AND TALKING OUT YER AZZ..

  18. A. whatever made this happpen, no god will help.
    b. why is it, whenever ANYONE is suffering, they “need” god?

    my take. god made this happen. why? cause he’s cruel and likes to see humans suffer. Why else would we exist on earth for? growth? LOL.

  19. I use to see him all the time in hells kitchen because I work there and sad to say it is life imitating art…he is truly in bad shape god willing he will pull himself together before the end comes…
