Rapper Desiigner Seeks Mental Help, Feels 'Ashamed' After Exposing Himself on Plane

The 'Timmy Turner' emcee admits he has 'not been ok' for the past few months following his inappropriate behavior while on an international flight over the weekend.

AceShowbiz - Desiigner is seeking help for his mental health following his inappropriate behavior on an airplane. The rapper says he's checking himself into a facility upon his return to the U.S. after exposing himself on an international flight over the weekend.

According to sources with direct knowledge, the 25-year-old star was on a flight back to the United States after a trip with stops in Thailand and Tokyo when he exposed himself and was subsequently scolded by a flight attendant. Upon landing in Minneapolis on Monday, April 17, he was met by cops and questioned, but eventually released.

As for what led to the incident, TMZ reports that Desiigner got ill while he was on his trip and was prescribed meds, which likely caused some sort of chemical imbalance. The "Panda" hitmaker has since admitted that that he's not okay and vowed to seek help.

"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 a statement issued via his Instagram Story on Thursday. "While overseas for a concert i performed at, i had to be admitted in to a hospital, i was not thinking clearly."

"They gave me meds, and i had to hop on a plane home," the singer/songwriter continued, before admitting, "I am ashamed of my actions that happened on that plane. I landed back to the states, and am admitting my self in a facility to help me."

The New York Native also announced a break from any professional activities. "I will be cancelling all shows and any obligations until further notice," he said, before stressing, "Mental health is real guys, please pray for me. If your not feeling like yourself please get help."
