Steve-O: I’m f**king bats**t after damaging my brain with drugs
Jackass star Steve-O has confirmed he’s on a mental evaluation hold at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
He posted a mesage to his blog recently entitled “You shoudl all know I am in the looney bin”.
In the post, he explained: “They call it ‘code 5150,’ that means ‘psycho,’ legally, f**kin bats**t, certifiably.”
“I’m outta my mind, believe-you-me. How’d I get this way? How can this be? It’s gotten so bad there’s nothing left of me.”
He added that a group of friends, including co-star Johnny Knoxville “came to my home” and physically “forced me into the hospital” after his behaviour had spun out of control.
People magazine also quote an email sent from the prankster, real name Stephen Glover, to those friends admitting: “I did a great deal of damage to my brain” with drugs and “now that they’ve all worn off, I’m facing the consequences.”
“I suppose it is an ironic ‘eye for an eye’ situation that I am in, coping with the lowest ‘lows’ that I’ve ever experienced – as a form of punishment for the emotional distress that I have put my loved ones through with the self-destructive behavior that led me here.”
He also described his violent outburst that led to his arrest earlier this month as a “bunch of mani bulls**t hat made little-to-no sense and, furthermore, was devastating to those who love me the most.”
The professional clown was admitted to the hospital last Sunday and is currently under a 14 day hold. He is believed to be suffering from diagnosed but untreated bipolar disorder.
