Kid Cudi has entered rehab for “depression and suicidal urges.”
The 32-year-old rapper addressed his struggles in a lengthy note posted to Facebook. “I am not at peace. I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I wouldve done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life,” he wrote. “Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times. Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax. My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I cant make new friends because of it. I dont trust anyone because of it and Im tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling.”
Cudi added that the release of his new studio album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, will not be affected. He’s targeting a return in time for Complexcon, where he is scheduled to perform on November 5th.
