In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Dalis Connell explained, “One of his friends was on pills and he tried it one night when we first started dating." Adding, “He started taking those while I was in class. I ran track in college and would be gone all day and he was bored.”

“I have never been around drugs use so I didn’t know the symptoms,” she said. “I was working and my co-worker asked if Ryan takes anything. She was like, ‘I went to rehab and he fidgets and scratches and has all the signs of someone using.’ I didn’t believe her.”
