Juice WRLD‘s photographer Chris Long has recently revealed additional details regarding the late rapper’s final moments. The Chicago-native died in December 2019 from an accidental overdose at the age of 21.

At the time, witnesses came forward claiming that in an effort to hide them from authorities searching his private plane for guns and drugs, Juice swallowed multiple Percocet pills which contain oxycodone. Long refuted the claims stating that, “J did not swallow a bunch of pills because the police were at the airport. We gave no f*cks about them being there. He could have flushed them down the toilet if he cared.”

He took to Twitter adding, “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.”

Long also confirmed that Juice had signed up for rehab just days before his death, “J was supposed to go to rehab that month. We tried so hard to do positive things everyday like ride dirt bikes or paintball to keep busy and not do pills but every night once he hit the studio that was it. He loved it.”

The photographer also reflects on his final moments with Juice, “I had to watch little bro die at my feet. I had to look in his eyes while he was dying and I could [sic] do anything about it. He had nothing to worry about. He knew the cops where there before we landed. We put that strap in my bag it was all good I had a clean record and I’m a register owner. I had no problem taking that charge.”
