Rapper Desiigner is opening up about his mental health struggles after he reportedly exposed himself on a plane. 

Taking to Instagram Stories Thursday night, the “Panda” rapper admitted, “For the past few months I have not been OK, and I have been struggling to come to terms with what is going on.”

“While overseas for a concert I performed at, I had to be admitted [into] a hospital, I was not thinking clearly. They gave me meds, and I had to hop on a plane home,” he continued. “I am ashamed of my actions that happened on that plane.”

“I landed back to the States, and am admitting myself in a facility to help me. I will be cancelling all of my shows and any obligations until further notice,” he added. “Mental health is real guys, please pray for me. If [you’re] not feeling like yourself please get help.”

Desiigner, 25, performed at 2023 Rolling Loud Thailand on April 14. According to TMZ, on his flight home, he exposed himself to a flight attendant. He was reportedly greeted by police officers and questioned about the incident when the plane landed in Minneapolis on April 20. He was then released.
