Stacey Dash broke down in an emotional video after just recently finding out rapper DMX died of a heart attack triggered by a drug overdose back in April 2021.
She took a moment to reflect on TikTok Wednesday (Aug. 31) about his tragic passing. She said on the social media “OK y’all. I’m ashamed.
I didn’t know… I didn’t know DMX died. I didn’t know from a cocaine overdose,” she said in between sobs with Kim Hitt and Advocate’s “You Don’t Know” playing in the background of the clip.
“I am, today, six years and one month clean… and it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart he lost to it. He lost. He lost to that demon of addiction…. Please, please don’t lose.”
“I was strolling through #tiktok and found a #DMX song that has saved me many times,” Stacey, 55, captioned the Aug. 31 Instagram post.
“Suddenly it says #RIP i know I am late, i did not know he passed away, he #OD I am heartbroken – he was such a great guy.”
In the clip, the actress tells her followers that she’s “ashamed” that she is just now finding out about DMX’s death. “I didn’t know DMX died,” she explained. “I didn’t know from a cocaine overdose.”
Stacey added, “I am today, six years and one month clean and it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart that he lost to it. He lost. He lost to that demon of addiction. Please, please don’t lose.”
