The Game discusses his Mental Health Break
“I’ve always prided myself on my transparency in tow with sharing every part of my life & myself with my family, friends & my fans. The past two weeks have been a nightmare for me,” he wrote. “I have witnessed disloyalty on levels unimaginable by people I’ve trusted with my heart, money, career & livelihood. Not only have I been backstabbed & betrayed.. I’ve been left to pick up the pieces alone.”
Game added: “I’m in no way shape or form angry with anyone for choosing to act in the manner they have as of recent & send love & well wishes from this day forward as there is no hate, malice or vengefulness in my heart.”
Game continued with an update on his physical health, saying he had a recent accident at the gym that required stitches. He also stated that he is undergoing therapy for other injuries suffered at the gym.
“On top of that, I’ve been in therapy for 2 weeks for my back for inflamed muscles & a bruised tailbone from over working out,” he said. “I also had an accident last night n cut my finger to the bone & had to receive 6 stitches.
“It’s been rough.. so I’ve decided to take a step back from my phone, social media & group settings, clubs etc so I can focus on completing my album so that my fans are happy with the delivery.”
Before I Go
Game continued: “The date is AUGUST 12TH 2022 & I promise you it will not change or move. I’ve given everything that I am to this album & I guarantee GREATNESS. If any of my family or close friends are looking for me & it’s important… DM @almighty__joey & he will give you my email. I will reply when I can. This break is for my MENTAL HEALTH & to afford myself the capacity to complete my album in full & stay committed to my release date.”
