Chris’ mother, Donna Kelly Pratt told police that Chris had taken a mixture of heroin and cocaine the night before.
Jermaine Dupri, who discovered Kris Kross in an Atlanta shopping mall, said that Chris Kelly was like a member of his family and he was crushed when he learned of his death.
Dupri said, “To the world, Chris Kelly was MacDaddy but to me he was the son I never had.”
He added, “When I think about it I spent more time with Chris and Chris than damn near anybody in my whole life, so you can imagine how bad this hurts.”
Dupri concluded, “I will always love you Chris, and I will never let the world forget you.”
