Stacey Dash posted a bizaar video to her TikTok saying she was today years old when she found out DMX passed away.
I mean it is possible for someone not to know everthing that happens in the world, right?
Stacey said she was looking for a DMX song and noticed “RIP” next to his name.
She also seemed very triggered by his cause of death admitting that she is herself 6 years clean.
In her caption she wrote:

I can’t believe that NOBODY close to Stacey Dash told her that DMX went to glory over a year ago. The whole world literally mourned for like a month.

Stacey has been candid about her problems with addiction.
In Newsweek last year she shared:
“I didn’t really remember until I was 17 when I tried to kill myself,” Dash said of the trauma she endured, per E! News. “It was at that time that I remembered that that happened to me, and I had already been very angry. I was a very angry, angry teenager.
“I became angry at I’d say around the age of 10 or 11, which is when my mother finally left my father. Even though my home was unstable and my father was a heroin addict, I knew he loved me. He just couldn’t beat it. He couldn’t overcome the addiction.”
After developing a drug addiction of her own that spanned her 20s, Dash shared that she eventually got sober.
However, the Clueless star also told Dr. Oz that she relapsed 20 years later when she was prescribed Vicodin to aid with painful fibroid cysts—spending an estimated $5,000 to $10,000 per month on the pills.
“I’m not blaming doctors at all because it was my choice to take more, you know?” Dash said during her interview. “It was my choice to take that extra one even though I wasn’t in pain.
“I chose to do that because the Vicodin filled that hole inside of me. It filled that anger. It calmed that anger down. It slowed my brain down. It gave me the ease so that I could deal with life. That’s how I became addicted. It’s no one’s fault but my own.”
The New York native said that she was secretly “taking 18 to 20 pills a day” at one stage, which led to her subsequently losing “everything.”
“That’s what stopped me. I almost died,” she went on. “My kidneys were so infected that my blood was septic, and my organs were shutting down. So, I got rushed to the hospital and I had to have a full blood transfusion and I was in there for three weeks. And by the grace and mercy of god, I lived.”
“I’m clean, five years,” she said. “And in this five years… the greatest blessing is that not only have I been able to be honest with myself and become a better person, I’ve been able to understand my parents and that they did love me and that they were doing the best they could and they were just sick. They were addicted.”
Explaining her reasons for publicly sharing her story, Dash told Dr. Oz: “I feel like telling my story—letting people know that there is no shame in being an addict, there is no shame in getting help because that’s what we need.
