Kid Cudi Checks Into Rehab for Depression and Suicidal Urges

Kid Cudi is not having a good time.

The rapper revealed in a private letter to fans on Tuesday that he has been experiencing a mental health crisis and will be taking a step back to take care of himself.

“It’s been difficult for me to find the words to what I’m about to share with you because I feel ashamed. 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.”

That’s so rough. I hope Kid Cudi gets the help he needs and get a handle on his  depression as best he can. He also said in his letter:

“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.”

Good vibes go out to Kid Cudi, man.
