On Sunday, Melinda Morris Zanoni, the CEO of Legacy Talent LLC, Flair’s talent agency, asked for prayers on Twitter.
On Saturday, Zanoni said Flair was in the hospital for routine monitoring.
“No reason 2 (sic) panic,” she tweeted.
Flair was taken to an intensive care unit near his Atlanta home over the weekend.
The coma was induced as Fair awaits surgery.
