Fredo Santana admitted to fans Saturday that drug addiction was the reasoning behind his stay in the hospital. Fredo told fans Friday he was in the hospital for kidney failure and liver failure after experiencing seizures.
Fredo revealed he almost died after suffering a seizure and falling to floor, where he bled from the mouth. Luckily, Gino Marley found him just in time. Fredo is now considering rehab to help end his addiction.
Fredo wrote he used drugs to repress bad memories that haunt him.
He wrote, “I was running from my old life tryna get high didn’t want to face them demons.”
Fredo wants to use his celebrity power to speak about drug addiction.
He wrote, “Hopefully I can be the face to sho n****s to slow down an we got out whole life ahead of us f**k being rock stars getting high. I got ptsd.”
Fredo is getting support from XXXTentacion who visited him in the hospital
“My dog X done pulled up on me. Real n***a,” Fredo said.
Fredo took to IG to announce his health status, writing, “Been in here since Friday. Doctor say a n***a kidney failure an live failure. I’m getting back to normal. Sorry to all my fans turbo bandana will not be dropping tomorrow due to my health issues. Thanks for everyone who prayed for a n***a. I wouldn’t wish this on my worse enemy.”
In March, Fredo posted a photo onto IG of himself in a hospital, and revealed to fans he was suffering from sleep deprivation and seizurs.
Fredo captioned his post, “When u working hard no sleep u get sleep deprived an have a light seizure.”
Many fans have long attributed Fredo’s hospitalization to overconsumption of Lean. Lean, often called “sizzurp” or “purple drank,” is a drink concoction made of Promethazine-Codeine cough syrup, Sprite and Jolly Rancher candy. The drink has its origins in the South after Houston producer DJ Screw popularized it.
