Italian DJ Joseph Capriati has shared a medical update from his hospital bed, stating that “the worst is over” after being stabbed in the chest by his father and subsequently admitted to the hospital on January 8. Although the producer’s stabbing and the arrest of his father for attempted murder made headlines worldwide, the 33-year-old is now asking for respect for his father and family, adding that he has forgiven his father “for the crazy act.”
The medical update was posted to Joseph Capriati’s Instagram in Italian on January 13. An English translation can be read below.
“I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart, my relatives, friends, acquaintances, and the many DJs and promoters who have shown me so much affection these days. I am touched. I haven’t been able to read and reply to the messages yet but I will do it in a few days when I get better. Until this morning I didn’t even have the strength to speak, but the doctors say the worst is over now.”
“I ask only one thing if it is possible, a little respect for my father and my family, since neither I nor any of you have the power and the duty to judge what happened. Family dramas are the order of the day, and especially attention to the press because, as you well know, the news is often confused and untrue. I forgive my father for the crazy gesture and I pray so much for him. Now I think about healing. See you soon.”
