Monica, Pete Wentz, Tegan And Sara & More Offer Well Wishes to Kid Cudi After Rapper Checks into Rehab for Depression
Kid Cudi posted an emotional note to Facebook on Tuesday night (Oct. 4), revealing that he has checked into rehab for his continuous battle with depression and "suicidal thoughts."
"I am not at peace," he typed. "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. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times." He also offered that Passion, & Demon Slayin', the follow-up to 2015's Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven, is "still on the way."
In April, the rapper (born Scott Mescudi) spoke with Billboard, sharing his struggle with drugs and depression. "I thought about how much of a struggle it has been the past eight years, to be in the news and pretend to be happy when, really, I was living a nightmare," he said at the time. "But I can go anywhere, whenever I want. My daughter is in one of the best private schools in the nation. I have everything I ever dreamed of in terms of stability. But I hadn’t been living that reality, because depression was f---ing me up. So this year I chose to be happy. I just woke up."
Since the news, celebrities from all corners of music have been sending Kid Cudi well wishes from indie-pop duo Tegan and Sara to R&B songstress Monica and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz. See all their tweets of encouragement below.
