from BITTEN AND BOUND Jackass star Steve-O is back in a mental institution. The extreme risk taker was hospitalized in March at L.A.’s Cedar-Sinai Medical Center after being charged with felony cocaine possession and has checked himself back in for further treatment.
As of June, Steve-O was ordered to undergo two years of rehab. Recently, on his blog, he wrote to his fans about his latest mental troubles:
“I’ve been clean for 115 days, and I’m, again, in a mental institution. I did so much cocaine, ketamine, pcp, nitrous oxide, and all sorts of other drugs, that, quite simply, my brain is f—-d up.”
The off-the-wall star did however say that his cognitive skills are intact, but that he is having trouble dealing with mood swings and severe depression.
It sounds to us like Steve-O is really trying to help himself and get better. He knows that everyone makes their own mistakes but is hoping that nobody makes the same mistakes that he did. Sounds like he’s keeping it real.
Let’s show our support for the struggling star and check out his blog and send him your well wishes for a better future.
