“Kris Kross” rapper Chris Kelly passed away yesterday, and today we’re getting more information on what could have happened. According to Chris’ mother, the rapper had been using a combination of cocaine and heroin the night before he died.
Paramedics responded to Kelly’s Atlanta home around 3:00PM yesterday afternoon, when his mother called 911. When help arrived, they found 34-year-old Kelly lying on the living room couch, unresponsive, and with “no life signs.” They tried to revive Kelly, but were unsuccessful. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead a couple hours later.
After the death, cops spoke with Donna Kelly Pratt — Chris’ mother — who told police … the night before Kelly’s medical emergency, he had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine — commonly known as “speedballs.”
Donna told police she had personally taken Kelly home to recover from the drug use … just as she had done several times before. Donna told cops Kelly had felt nauseous all morning before passing out.
According to the report, Kelly’s mother and Kelly’s uncle both told investigators the rapper had an “extensive history of drug use.”
R.I.P….. this is so sad.
