Post Malone has spoken about his mental health problems
Post Malone opened up about his mental health problems in a recent interview with GQ Style.
He revealed that he suffered from depression when he was in middle school and high school and that he unsuccessfully tried using alcohol to cope. Post also added that he did not believe that his mental health issues were anybody’s fault and that it might have been the result of a predisposition.
But when asked whether he was seeking help, he said he was trying but that he was having difficulty.
Malone was the subject of a death hoax back in 2018
Many took to Twitter back 2018 to spread rumors that Malone died when a private jet carrying him crashed soon after taking off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. He was traveling to Luton Aiport in London to perform in the Reading & Leeds Festivals.
The rumors continued to circulate on social media after Malone’s plane landed safely at Stewart International Airport in New York. The plane was forced to land due to an emergency.
Malone appeared to have been shocked by the death rumors on social media and he later said he couldn’t believe that so many people would wish death upon him.
