Chase Tatum was found dead 6 days ago of an accidental drug overdose. Tatum, pictured above in a promo pic from the film Who’s Your Caddy along with Faizon Love, Big Boi and Finesse Mitchell, formerly worked as a road manager and personal assistant for OutKast. Tatum was also well known as a professional wrestler, which apparently is where he developed the back problems which lead to his addiction to pain-killers. Tatum was 34.
Chase Tatum had been recovering from back surgery to repair a degenerative disc. His father said the former wrestler had been fighting a dependence to painkillers for years but had been planning to enter a rehabilitation center.
“He was in the process of getting his life back together,” Roy Tatum said Monday. “He was confident he was going to turn things around, to live a normal life again without those painkillers.” (Source)
