Someone asked me if I heard Serge Nubret was in the hospital. Another asked if Serge Nubret was dead. I looked into thise and it does seems that Serge Nubret is in a coma. I got the following information from his website sergenubret.com, I am hoping for his speedy recovery.
To cut a long story short and to stop the rumors available on the internet, we have decided to publish this official statement concerning Serge Nubret's health state.
On March 19 2009, our father was discovered home, in a coma by firemen. He was immediately transfered to the Lariboisiere hospital. Since that, Serge Nubret is under the supervision of the hospital's medical staff. For now, the diagnosis is a hypoglycemic coma probably due to a malfunction of the pancreas. The explorations continues while Serge Nubret is in rehabilitation. We will keep you informed of any change in its health state.
Meanwhile, we suspend the website.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
