Kid Cudi had a stroke while in rehab


Kid Cudi shared that he suffered a health crisis while in rehab in 2016.

That year, he checked himself into rehab to deal with depression, posting on Facebook “I’m not at peace.”

“I haven’t been there since you knew me. If I hadn’t come here, I would have done something to myself,” he wrote on his page at the time. “I am simply a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions every day of my life. There is a violent storm inside my heart at all times.

In a recently published interview with Esquire magazine, Cudi revealed that two weeks after his stay in rehab, he suffered a stroke and was hospitalized.

This forced him to do physical rehabilitation for several months. He knew he was better the next year, he said, when he was able to memorize quite a bit of dialogue to audition for a Broadway play.

“I proved to myself that I could do it. I needed it back then,” the rapper, producer and actor said. “I was happy. Like, fuck, my brain is still strong. I didn’t lose anything in this shit that happened.
