Johannesburg – Afrikaans singer Rudi Claase is recovering at home after an alleged suicide attempt at the weekend, Beeld reported on Tuesday.

According to the newspaper Claase was found unconscious in his home on Sunday after he took an overdose of pills and slit one of his wrists.

Claase's husband, Stephen Stewart, said the singer is currently in a stable condition and recovering at home.

Huisgenoot reported in its 18 July issue that Claase was filing for divorce from Stewart after drugs allegedly drove them apart.
