Darrio was not beaten, viral photo is from a video shoot

July 20, 2016

Dancehall artiste Darrio is denying claims that have been surfacing online that he was severely beaten and left for dead by a river.

These posts were accompanied by a photo that shows a man who appears to have been mauled. 

A statement from his publicist, Tallisa Taylor, confirmed that Darrio was indeed the person in the photo but rubbished all claims of an attack.

"We were made aware that several online sources have published stories that recording artiste @darriomusic was attacked and photos of him surfaced online. We would like to advise that those photos are indeed that of Darrio however they were taken on set of his recent video shoot for his single 'Just For Living'," the statement read.

And while many, including Darrio's mom have since been worried, Taylor assured fans and well wishers that the School Fee deejay is safe and sound.

"Darrio is not hurt. He is okay. Several persons took photos on set of the shoot and shared them online causing the rumours to start," she said.
