“Darrell tells us prescription pills were involved … but he believes the possible OD was accidental.”

Roberts left 3 Doors Down in 2012 over what some described as “health issues.”

“3 Doors Down will always have a special place in my heart and it saddens me to take this time off, but my health has to be my first priority,” Roberts said in a press release at the time.

Matt Roberts was 38.
