An anonymous tumblr page has posted a variety of photos, and stories, about Jonny Craig. The page states that Jonny has been kicked out of Dance Gavin Dance and is still heavily involved in drugs. Be warned: the pictures are probably not something you'd want on your work computer. As this breaks, a bunch of information, much of it quite disturbing, will probably start to pour out. We would like to urge everyone to try and have a little compassion, as this is going to get quite rough. Our thoughts are with all involved. If you or a loved one is suffering from substance abuse - please seek help from one of the many treatment centers around the country.
Update: Rise Records has responded to us, saying "We've got no comment on this situation, because we're not aware of any of this stuff." Seems like they are just now seeing the pictures as everyone else is. We are in the process of reaching out to Jonny's management. Update #2: We have spoken to another source who has asked to remain anonymous. The information we have received suggests that what was posted in the original Tumblr posts (that Jonny is no longer in DGD, that Rise has dropped him as a solo act, that Matt Geise will be the new DGD singer, and that Jonny won't be on the upcoming tour) is almost all correct. The murky information is that we are not sure who will be filling in for Jonny on the upcoming tour, we are not sure whether DGD will be moving on as a band, and are not 100% sure of Rise's involvement with anything related to Craig. We are waiting for a statement from Craig's manager.
Update #3: It appears as though Jonny's former manager no longer manages him. We are working on reporting the story and reaching out to other contacts.
Update #4: We've reached out to a poster who claims to be the person who posted the original pictures on Tumblr. His response to us can be read here.
Update #5: I have re-worded this post to better reflect the story, the original wording can be found here. - Jason Tate
