One half of the iconic rap duo Kris Kross tragically passed away on May 1 from an alleged drug overdose in his Atlanta, Ga. home. Now, a new video has surfaced from Chris’ final hours showing him in a haze attempting to rap. Keep reading to watch the sad footage.
More and more information about Chris Kelly’s last, drug-filled night before his death continues to trickle out. Most recently a new video hit the internet of Chris and his friends partying at his house in the early morning of May 1, just hours before he was found unconscious by his mother.
Chris Kelly’s Final Hours Revealed
Chris and his friends are hanging out at his house at 9 a.m. in the morning, still partying in the video obtained by TMZ. At one point the camera focuses on Chris, clearly intoxicated and in a haze, while he tries to sing along with a rap song.
In hindsight, the video is extremely upsetting. Though it has not been confirmed that Chris died of a drug overdose, police did say that both cocaine and heroin were found in the rapper’s system. Furthermore, Chris’ mother admitted that he “had an extensive history of drug use” and he reportedly fell back into his addiction in February after performing at a Kris Kross reunion show, according to TMZ.
Chris Kelly: Cocaine & Heroin Use Was Lethal
Clare Waismann, founder of the WAISMANN METHOD — an opiate detoxification center in Beverly Hills, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the drug cocktail of cocaine and heroin that Chris consumed was extremely dangerous. “Individually they are both lethal drugs, but when they are combined they become even more lethal,” Clare says:
Chris could have died of a heroin overdose, a cocaine overdose or a combination of both. Cocaine can cause a heart attack and heroin can cause someone to stop breathing because it slows down the functions of the body. His death could be either heart or lung related or even both.
Chris was so young at the age of 34 and clearly troubled — his death is so tragic. Watch this video from his last hours and tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers.
