UPDATE: Christopher "Big Black" Boykins Heart Was 'In Serious Condition' Before Death



According to TMZ's reports, Christopher 'Big Black' Boykin's heart was in terrible condition for days before his death -- so bad, in fact, doctors feared he'd eventually need a heart transplant.

Shannon Turley, Chris' ex-wife, tells TMZ Chris was hospitalized in Plano, TX for several days while doctors monitored his heart. He'd been struggling with heart issues, and already had a defibrillator implanted in his chest.

Doctors tried to resuscitate Chris for 30 minutes when his heart gave out on Tuesday. He ultimately passed at 4 PM. Shannon says Chris was not on the transplant list yet, but doctors said he was heading in that direction.

Shannon and Chris have been living together in Texas, though divorced since 2009, with their 9-year-old daughter Isis, due to Chris' declining health.
