Brake fluid leaking from bottom of transmission bell housing (x-posted from S&B)

So the other night I was driving home and my clutch pedal went out. I've had my master cylinder and my slave cylinder go out on my E30 before and I knew what it felt like so I decided to tow the car home and replace the slave cylinder. Got the new slave cylinder installed in about an hour and tried to bleed it. Only problem was when we added brake fluid to the reservoir it wouldnt hold the fluid. I check for any holes in the reservoir and couldnt find any. Then we pushed on the break pedal to see if there was a leak in the master. A ton of brake fluid started dripping from the transmission access panel and I got underneath and all I could see was fluid leaking from the bell housing. I know the brake lines that go over to the DSC unit run over the top of that section but can brake pipe even leak like that?

Thanks in advance,
Whig Bong

TL;DR: when I press brake pedal fluid leaks from bottom of bell housing. Think it has to do with DSC
