Married at First Sight star Chris Williams has just admitted to battling depression after causing havoc on social media over the past few months.

The controversial TLC star has been accused of trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame by acting out and airing his business for the world to read and comment on.

He has lashed out at his past castmates, at the MAFS experts, and at his ex-wife Paige Banks. But that’s not all, his former friend Pastor Dwight who married him and Paige on the show also felt Chris’s wrath some time ago when he blasted him on Instagram.

Most recently he slammed his ex-fiance Mercedes Myrick and accused her of lying about being pregnant with his child.

However, Chris has been battling with some personal demons and after making an apology to all the people he blasted recently, he later confessed to suffering from depression.
