Kid Cudi Checking Into Rehab For Suicidal Urges & Depression

Kid Cudi is checking himself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges.

Last night, Kid Cudi shared an upsetting message on his Facebook page revealing he had checked himself into rehab for “depression and suicidal urges.”

Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, detailed the mental health struggles he’s faced in a lengthy post.

“Its been difficult for me to find the words to what Im 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.” he posted.

“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.  Yesterday I checked myself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges.  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.”

The 32 year-old went on to say his issues have caused him problems with trusting people. making new friends and even leaving the house.

“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.”

Thankfully, Cudi has made the decision to get himself help and battle his issues.

“I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me? 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. Im scared, im sad, I feel like I let a lot of people down and again, Im sorry. Its time I fix me. Im nervous but ima get through this.”

He went on to discuss upcoming projects, and how his label and manager would update fans.

“I wont be around to promote much, but the good folks at Republic and my manager Dennis will inform you about upcoming releases. The music videos, album release date etc. The album is still on the way. Promise. I wanted to square away all the business before I got here so I could focus on my recovery.”

Cudi remains hopeful he’ll be out of rehab in time for Complexcon, which will take place in November.

If all goes well ill be out in time for Complexcon and ill be lookin forward to seeing you all there for high fives and hugs.”

Signing off, the rapper expressed his love for his fans, and said he felt ashamed.

“Love and light to everyone who has love for me and I am sorry if I let anyone down. I really am sorry. Ill be back, stronger, better. Reborn. I feel like shit, I feel so ashamed. Im sorry.

I love you,

Scott Mescudi

Hopefully Kid Cudi will find the help he needs, it’s unfortunate he feels so ashamed for something that isn’t his fault.
