The rapper’s friends insisted he had alcohol problems but did not take drugs.

She also disputed that the rapper’s mother-in-law had been involved.

Newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda said no drugs were found on the rapper’s body, citing official sources.

However, it was reported investigators found traces of male hands on one of the dead man's forearms suggesting he had been grabbed.

Russian police say they have now opened a murder probe into the death of the star - real name was Alexander Yushko from the Ukraine.

The widow was detained and is expected to undergo a polygraph test as part of the murder probe.

She claimed she found a syringe next to his body and said he had become addicted to hard drugs during the pandemic, she told his fans on social media.

Forensic tests are underway in an attempt to establish the cause of death and the investigation continues.
