Lil Xan created a firestorm on social media after he stated in 2018 that he would overdose on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. However, anyone familiar with the 25-year old rapper’s life knows he’s had his struggles with prescription pill addiction.
After a brief stint in rehab, Xan confessed he’d relapsed on opioids in June 2019 before getting clean again last year. Now Xan has been hospitalized once again. On March 23rd, Xan took to social media to share his condition with fans.
Xan posted a couple of photos to Instagram and admitted that he checked himself in on a 5150, the California law code for the temporary, involuntary psychiatric commitment of individuals who present a danger to themselves or others due to signs of mental illness. He added a brief caption in his post further explaining the situation.
“DIDNT WANT TO EVEN LET PEOPLE KNOW HOW BAD IT WAS AFFECTING MY MENTAL HEALTH BUT I FEEL I SHOULD BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL ON A 51/50,PLEASE STOP SPEAKING ABOUT ME IF YOU DONT KNOW ME IM A HUMAN BEING JUST LIKE YOU.”
Xan also shared what prompted him to seek help. He suggested that online bullying ramped up in December 2021 when he outed his former manager, Status Quo, for allegedly supplying him with the drugs that almost killed him. He wrote in the post,
“CRAZY EVER SINCE I SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE INDUSTRY SO MANY FALSE NARRATIVE VIDEOS ABOUT ME START SURFACING ON THE INTERNET LIKE WILDFIRE,” Xan said. “IF YOU THINK IM BROKE I ASK YOU TO DIG DEEPER AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH THEN BELIEVE A STUIPD YOUTUBE VIDEO.
Details about the situation are still scarce. We will be on the lookout for more updates. Meanwhile, you can check out his post below.
