Stacey Dash Opens Up About Late Discovery of DMX’s Death

Stacey Dash expressed deep sorrow upon learning about the passing of DMX, admitting that she was only informed more than a year after the iconic rapper’s demise.

In April 2021, DMX tragically succumbed to a heart attack induced by cocaine use, leaving fans and admirers devastated by the loss. While many continue to grieve the loss of the revered artist from Mount Vernon, there is one individual who has just begun processing the news nearly 18 months later: Stacey Dash.

The former “Clueless” star took to TikTok recently to share her emotional reaction to the belated revelation, revealing her journey of sobriety after discovering the role addiction played in the rapper’s death.

“Okay y’all. I’m ashamed I didn’t know. I didn’t know DMX died, I didn’t know, from a cocaine overdose,” Dash tearfully expressed in a video posted on Wednesday. “I am today six years and one month clean. It breaks my heart. Breaks my heart that he lost to it. He lost. He lost to that demon of addiction. Please, please don’t lose.”

In the accompanying message to her emotional post, Dash explained that she came across a DMX track on TikTok that had been a source of support for her on numerous occasions.

“Suddenly it says #RIP i know I am late, i did not know he passed away,” she shared beneath her video. “He #OD I am heartbroken – he was such a great guy #Devastated #StaceyDash #fyp #sober.”

Responses flooded in from viewers, expressing disbelief that Dash had only recently learned about DMX’s passing. One comment read, “Yes he been passed away,” to which Dash replied, “Question. Yo! How can so many people not have ears to hear????”

Another individual questioned, “Where have you been, it was everywhere that DMX passed away,” prompting a reply from Dash stating, “I didn’t know. Like I said. I don’t watch TV or read the news. So…”

Well, it seems that Dash is now quite active on TikTok, so staying updated on current events shouldn’t pose a challenge moving forward.
