Pictures were circling the internet over the past month or so of people spotting Gerard Butler out and about in Rochester, Minnesota. He was spotted at Thursdays Downtown one week and the Olmsted County Fair another week. But no one really knew why he was in town.

Of course, if Gerard is getting treatment at Mayo Clinic it's none of our business unless he makes a public statement about it. And most of the time when celebrities are in Rochester they're here for Mayo. But that may not be the reason why Gerard was in town.

We recently found out that a Scottish singer, 41-year-old Darius Campbell Danesh, was living at The Berkman Apartments across from St. Mary's. Before noon on Thursday, August 11th he was found dead in his apartment. In a statement to the BBC from Darius' family, they say, "The local police department have confirmed that there were no signs of intent or suspicious circumstances. The cause of his sudden death is unknown at this stage while medical examinations continue."

Turns out Gerard Butler was actually good friends with Darius Campbell Danesh according to multiple sources including The Sun and Metro UK. The Sun spoke with a few people who live at The Berkman and one person says they saw Gerard at the complex about a week ago, which would mean he was there a few days before Darius' death.

We don't know if Darius was receiving treatment at Mayo or not but more will be revealed once results come back from the medical examiner.
