There was no news about him for a long time. Many rumors were spread about him later. Some said he was dead, some said went mad. But not one rumor was true. How do we know that?
Finally, Honey Singh came out to the media and spoke about his absence reason.
Read below to know what actually happened in his own words.
“This is the first time I am talking about it as I want my fans to know what happened to me. Nobody knows about this, and I wanted to tell the world myself, not through a spokesperson. The last 18 months were the darkest phase of my life, and I wasn’t in a state to talk to anyone,’ Honey said.
‘’I know there were rumors that I was in rehab (for drug overdose), but I was in my Noida house throughout. The truth is I was suffering from bipolar disorder. It went on for 18 months, during which I changed four doctors, the medication wasn’t working on me and crazy things were happening. I must confess that I was bipolar and an alcoholic, which aggravated the condition.”
“After the sun went down, I was scared of my own family. I wasn’t behaving like myself. I was a sick person. It wasn’t in my own control. But now it is all behind me and I’ve come out of it.” he added.
“I had cut myself off from everyone. I didn’t come out of my room, forget to step out of the house and had a beard and didn’t get a haircut for months. For someone who has performed in front of a crowd of 20,000, I was scared of facing 4-5 people. That’s what bipolar disorder does to you.”
Now we know why. Let’s hope he gets better soon. We all love him and wish to see him perform again.
