What happened to Edouin Katz?
In the middle of last year, news broke that Edouin Katz was facing serious health problems due to a hiatal hernia. The celebrity’s drinking patterns exacerbated the problem, and in May 2022 he was urgently hospitalized after collapsing after a concert.

“I still need another operation, which is my hernia, and the truth is I don’t want to give them a bad show. I hope they understand me,” he said.
