breaking news

Jermaine Dupri -- the guy who discovered Kris Kross -- says Chris Kelly was like a member of his family ... and he was crushed when he learned of his death.

Dupri -- who was 18-years-old when he first noticed Kris Kross in an ATL shopping mall in 1990 -- 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."

"May god bless your soul."

Jermaine Dupri, if Chris was like your son, then why did you have someone set him up with bad drugs to murder him? I know a man that did all kind of drugs and is living at 57 and started at the age of 16. If anyone can not see that Chris was murdered, they need help themselves. My advice to everyone is to stay away from the entertainment industry. The words SOSO DEF, should tell any mother do not allow your child to sign no contract papers for evil money! Chris was a sweet person yall. And I pray his soul will be saved on Judgement Day, but for all of you mental rich celebrities that have, and continue to sacrifice innocent people for your fairytale dream and money, I hope that you feel every flame of fire that God have your rotten a--e! This includes the illuminati satan creators too! I MISS YOU CHRIS, MAY GOD CLEANSE AND BLESS YOUR PRECIOUS SOUL. RIP SON

KRISS KROSS was like my little brothers, wish I could have met them back then. Whomever had this done to Chris, giving him bad drugs for Jermaine Dupri, you all will get yours someday because God know who everyone is and see what we do. There is a last video tape of Chris in his home, and two other guys there, the guy that recorded the video, focused the camera on the wall showing the Gold records of KRISS KROSS and one of the guys stated a comment similar to "Yeah it won't be long before I will get one of those up there" I believe one or both of the guys in Chris home on the video, had something to do with the death of Chris, and I also believe JD set it up for it to happen for Chris to use bad drugs from the dealer in Chris's home or they used injection. Ask yourself; Did Jermaine Dupri know the two guys, that was there in Chris's home in the video tape? very strange, huh. And the 911 call from the female sounded strange, it did not sound as if she was very upset over Chris, a mother would scream and panic if she knew her child is not breathing. This is a very strange death that should be investigated.
