Italian techno DJ and producer Joseph Capriati has been hospitalized after being stabbed by his father, Pietro Capriati.
According to Il Riformista, an alleged disagreement between Joseph and Pietro in the family home escalated to the point that Pietro stabbed Joseph in the upper left part of his chest with a kitchen knife, puncturing his lung.
Joseph has now shared his message to the public.
”I’m alive, thank God. 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”, said Joseph.
