Yo Yo Honey Singh has finally revealed the real reason for his time away from the limelight. In an interview with a leading daily, Yo Yo said that he was holed up in his Noida house, struggling with bipolar disorder and alcoholism. There were news about Honey Singh that he’s in rehab but Honey denied all these rumors and revealed the real reason of this absence.
Yo Yo has cleared the air by saying, “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.” Although this comes as a huge shock, Honey isn’t the first person who’s come out in the open and confessed about his disorder. Recently, TV actress Shama Sikander also admitted that she went through severe temperamental changes and then finally realized that she too was suffering from the bipolar syndrome.
Yo Yo Honey Singh has shared screen space with superstar like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan. However, he has never performed with Salman. Incidentally, the rapper celebrates his 33rd birthday today, and in an interview with the The Times of India, Honey revealed the truth about his nearly two-year long absence from the spotlight.
Yo Yo Honey Singh Said:
“I have performed with Shah Rukh bhai and Jacqueline Fernandez in the past, but not with Salman bhai. So I am looking forward to interacting with him with my performance, if he is in the audience.”
“The last 18 months were the darkest phase of my life, and I wasn’t in a state to talk to anyone. I know there were rumours that I was in rehab (for a 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 and crazy things were happening,” he said. “I must confess that I was… an alcoholic, which aggravated the condition.”
Yo Yo Honey Singh said that for a year he didn’t meet anyone, rarely stepping out of his room because of his Bipolar Disorder. The rapper added that it was his mother who gave him the strength to carry on, and that he composed a song called “Rise and Shine” for her.
