Rapper and singer Yo Yo Honey Singh has broken the silence on why he has been absent for the music scene to Indian newspaper Times of India.
After nearly 2 years out of the music scene and numerous rumours as to why he had disappeared the musician revealed all.
“I know there were rumours that I was in rehab, but I was in my Noida house throughout. 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 and crazy things were happening. I must confess that I was bipolar and an alcoholic which aggravated the condition.”
“Forget leaving the house, I couldn’t even leave my room. At one point, I thought I would live in this darkness forever. I had cut myself off from everyone. I didn’t come out of my room, forget stepping out of the house. I had a beard and I 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,” Honey went on to say.
