“Our priority will always be our beautiful family. We have so much love in our hearts for each other and will continue to encourage growth and expansion in one other.

“Please be kind as we take on this journey, and we thank you for your love and support always. — Darius & Beth Rucker”

Darius said: ‘She was walking up the stairs [to her apartment], and I said, ‘Well, you know that I’m going to marry you, right?’ She just laughed’[/caption]The rocker told The Boot in 2010 his and Beth’s had an instantaneous connection.

Darius said: “She was walking up the stairs [to her apartment], and I said, ‘Well, you know that I’m going to marry you, right?’ She just laughed.”

He recalled: “Her roommate or her boyfriend was up there in their apartment, and I yelled, ‘To whoever’s up there in Beth Leonard’s apartment, you can just leave because I just want you to know that I’m going to marry her!’”


Darius and Beth did indeed get married in 2000.

At the time Darius told The Boot: “It takes a strong woman to be married to a musician, especially a musician who was drinking and partying as hard as I was, and I think life for us is where we are now.

“It took a long time for us to get to where we are now, and we say to each other all the time, ‘I love us. I love our family. I love us.’”
