The passing of rapper Juice WRLD left the whole world shocked when, on December 8, 2019, he suffered a catastrophic seizure in his own private jet after the plane had touched down in Chicago, the rapper’s hometown.
As it was believed for a long time that the rapper had swallowed a lot of pills in order to stop them from being spotted by the police, his photographer who was present in the jet at the time, claims that he doesn’t think that’s the case at all.
Chris Long, that rapper’s former photographer, took to Twitter and revealed why he thinks it wasn’t the fear of police which led Juice WRLD to swallow a lot of pills. He stated:
I can’t do this anymore. I give up. Thanks for all the messages. I’m trying so hard. But if I can’t do it let’s make sure some things are clear. J did not swallow a bunch of pills because the police where [sic] at the airport. We gave no f*cks about them being there. He could have flushed them down the toilet if he cared. J was just hooked bad. The amount he took daily was absurd and he hid how much he really took from mostly everyone. Everyone around him tried really hard to get him to slow down. When he agreed to rehab it was because he wanted to lower his tolerance. He didn’t want to stop.
Even Juice WRLD’s manager, Lil Bibby had stated that the rapper only agreed to go to rehab because his loved ones had figured out that he was using drugs as a means to cope way more than it was feasible.
Long makes many other tweets in the series to process his feelings regarding the passing of Juice WRLD. In one of the tweets, he states that he watched “my little bro die at my feet. I had to look in his eyes while he was dying and I could do anything about it.” WRLD was a heavy drug user since an early age, having claimed that he took percocets and xanaes in 2013. Rest in peace, Juice WRLD.[Via]
