Lil Xan just checked into rehab to treat his opioid addiction.
According to multiple reports, the 22-year-old rapper, real name Diego Leanos, is seeking treatment after two of his peers and personal idols, Mac Miller and Lil Peep, recently died of overdoses. He wants to nip his problem in the bud before it’s too late.
His girlfriend Annie just sent out an update on his official Instagram account detailing his current state. “Diego was just admitted into his first treatment,” she says. “He loves each and every one of you sending good wishes and prayers to him. We thank you all so very much for all of the love and support you are sending his way.”
During an interview interview earlier this year, Lil Xan opened up about the stigma behind his name. “It got out of hand so I wanted to make a movement, Xanarchy, about just nothing but anti-Xan use and that’s what I’m really trying to promote in ‘Betrayed.’”
He went on, “I really don’t agree with glorifying the drug at this point, especially in light of Lil Peep’s death. You’d be stupid to keep glorifying it. You gotta get off that stuff, it’s not good for you.”
We wish him all the best on his journey to get clean.
