"Darius swore he was clean for years, and now this has people thinking he needs help to get back on track!" a tipster tattled to the National Enquirer.

The singer's ex-girlfriend, Kate Quigley, dragged him after his arrest. She called the situation "karma," which appeared to insinuate that Rucker had what was coming to him after he decided to speak about her health following her 2021 accidental overdose on cocaine laced with fentanyl. Three of her friends lost their lives in the incident. Quigley was the sole survivor.
