Kid Cudi opened himself up on Tuesday when he revealed an emotional letter to fans that he’s checked himself into rehab after battling with “depression and suicidal urges.”
“It’s been difficult for me to find the words to what I’m about to share with you because I feel ashamed,” Cudi said in his Facebook letter. “Ashamed to be a leader and hero to so many while admitting I’ve been living a lie. It took me a while to get to this place of commitment, but it is something I have to do for myself, my family, my best friend/daughter and all of you, my fans.” Cudi would go onto say, “I am not at peace. I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I would’ve done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. There’s a ragin’ violent storm inside of my heart at all times. Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax.”
Cudi entering rehab comes just a month after he had a brief but very public Twitter beef with Kanye West and Drake when he called them “clowns.” Check out the full letter below.
