Bruce Lee, DMX & Other Celebrities Who Were Drug Addicts

Just a few days ago a shocking report was released on rapper Earl Simmons famously known as DMX about his cause of death in April 2021.

The Westchester County medical examiner’s office has revealed DMX’s official cause of death nearly three months after the rap legend’s passing. A new report confirmed that DMX died of a cocaine-induced heart attack, which prevented blood circulation to his brain.

“It was cardiac arrest for a period of time, so there was no circulation to the brain,” said a source medical examiner’s office, who also noted X’s regular cocaine use.

An autopsy was not performed as the examiner’s office relied on documentation provided by medical officials and law enforcement. The source also claimed DMX was already brain-dead by the time he arrived at a hospital despite paramedics arriving on the scene less than 10 minutes after 911 was called. Paramedics were able to revive his heart before transporting him to a hospital, but he was technically already dead.

“His death literally happened immediately because the brain was dead,” the source added. “So obviously, there were a number of days where he was on ventilatory support and so forth in the hospital. However, he was diagnosed brain-dead early on…He never woke up from [a] coma.”

DMX passed away on April 9 at 50-years-old. The following month, the rapper’s first posthumous album, Exodus, was released.

Bruce Lee just like DMX was a secret drug user, according to bombshell letters written by the late martial arts star.

Lee died in 1973 at the age of 32 from a brain edema and letters written to his friend and fellow actor Robert Baker before his death, reveal his reported dependence on drugs.

The letters appear to reveal that Baker supplied Lee with drugs – including cocaine, LSD and cannabis – from 1969 until his untimely death.

They were discovered at a flea market and are being sold through Heritage Auctions in Dallas, who have authenticated the letters.

A spokesman for Heritage Auctions said: “Bruce Lee is the most influential martial artist of all time and a pop culture icon of the 20th century, and these letters show he kept an explosive secret.”

There are a number of handwritten letters from Lee to Baker – who died aged 52 in 1993 – in the auction, with one showing Lee asking for coke which he implied would help him prepare for an upcoming movie.

He wrote: “Stoned as hell, but am working on the up-coming character…Some coke would help…”

In another letter, he wrote: “COKE (in large amount),” “ACID (in fair amount)” and “HASH OR GRASS,” along with an enquiry about “psilocybin”, also known as magic mushrooms.

There repeated orders of “C,” “coke” and “Coca-Cola” in the letters, along with “holy stuff,” “super duper,” “M pills”, “H oil” and others.

Many of the letters used Lee’s personal Jeet Kune Do letterhead stationeries and in 1970, there was a reference to quitting drugs.

Referencing his wife Linda, Lee wrote: “I told Linda to call you to forget about the ‘stuff’ because I really don’t need them in my training. I feel that I have ‘gained’ in trying them, but excessive indulgence of them just isn’t in my road in Jeet Kune Do.”

However, in 1972, when he left the US and moved to Hong Kong, there was a request for “advice on the possibility of shipping some coke to me”.
