In the candid conversation, the 27-year-old said that October to December 2019 was the darkest period of his life. “In October, November and December I was really in a bad place. If you check my Instagram account, you will notice that I was not posting anything during that time. There was this time I called you, I wanted to end my life at View Point. I wanted to go and jump in my car (sic),” he told Zeddy.
