Rapper Kid Cudi checked himself into rehab on Monday for “depression and suicidal urges.”
“It took me awhile 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,” the rapper shared in an emotional Facebook post on Tuesday. “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.”
Cudi, who recently made headlines for a short-lived feud with his former mentor, Kanye West, admitted to fans that “anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it.”
“I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me?” he continued. “I guess I give so much of myself to others I forgot that I need to show myself some love too. I think I never really knew how.”
The rapper, who signed the post with his real name, Scott Mescudi, apologized profusely to fans throughout, but over 15,000 responses and comments on the Facebook post at the time of publishing featured nothing but love for Cudi, who promised that his upcoming album is “still on the way.”
“I’m nervous but I’ma get through this,” he wrote. “I wanted to square away all the business before I got here so I could focus on my recovery… Love and light to everyone who has love for me and I am sorry if I let anyone down. I really am sorry. I'll be back, stronger, better. Reborn.”
