Comedian Fuquan Johnson died this weekend of an apparent overdose — along with two others — while a fourth person is in the hospital … the recent girlfriend of one Darius Rucker, TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ .. there was a get-together Friday night at someone’s house in the Venice neighborhood of L.A., where Johnson was in attendance — as was Kate Quigley … a comedian/model who has been, of late, dating the Hootie & the Blowfish lead singer — this after the guy split with his longtime wife just last summer.
Darius’ rep, however, confirms to TMZ … he is not dating Kate, and hasn’t been for a while. They were reportedly going out for a good chunk of last year — and there’s photos of them on her IG page as a couple from this past May. Seems there’s no affiliation now, though.
