Desiigner has been struggling with some pretty significant mental health issues, apparently. This is not the first time he has faced such challenges. Last year, the rapper disclosed that he left Kanye West's label because he was going through a difficult time mentally. At the time, his father had recently fallen into a coma, and he was also concerned about his mother's health while he was touring. Shortly after that interview, Desiigner was involved in a scary confrontation with the LAPD. Afterward, he claimed that the police were unnecessarily aggressive, and he told them that he was dealing with PTSD.
As we previously reported, Desiigner has since had another run in with police for a very different reason. The rapper was in Thailand recently, and his trip back probably didn't go the way he thought it would. On his international flight back from Asia, he allegedly exposed himself. When he landed, the rapper was met by police. Apparently the rapper has not been feeling like himself for quite some time, and even had to be admitted to a hospital while he was out of the country. The specifics were not provided, and little information was known at the time about the incident. However, Desiigner has now officially been charged for the airplane exposure. As such, we have gotten more details about it.
Is Desiigner's Mental Health To Blame?
On the flight back from Asia, Desiigner was sitting in first class. Apparently, he exposed himself several times to flight attendants. In addition, it has also been alleged that he was pleasuring himself during the incident. After the flight attendants told him to stop several times, the rapper was removed from his seat and taken to the back of the plane. Allegedly, when he got up to move, a jar of vaseline fell into the aisle. Desiigner was detained upon arrival in the US and questioned by authorities. He told them it was because he "didn't really get much ... cootie" while he was on the trip, and he was "brick hard" when he got on the plane. Desiigner then claimed he was attracted to the fight attendant. He thought if he exposed himself to her, it would give her "encouragement."
After the incident took place last week, Desiigner released a statement where he alleged that his mental health had not been in a good place for quite some time. "For the past few months i have not been ok, and i have been struggling to come to terms with what is going on," he said in his statement. "I am ashamed of my actions that happened on that plane... and am admitting my self in a facility to help me. I will be cancelling all shows and any obligations until further notice." With the new details that have emerged, the incident seems far more calculated than before. What do you think of Desiigner's behavior on the plane? Let us know in the comments!
