Hip-hop artist Kid Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, has revealed that he's checked into rehab for "depression and suicidal urges."
The Cleveland native made the shocking announcement to fans on his Facebook page, writing, "It's been difficult for me to find the words to what I'm about to share with you because I feel ashamed. Ashamed to be a leader and hero to so many while admitting I've been living a lie. It took me a while to get to this place of commitment, but it is something I have to do for myself, my family, my best friend/daughter and all of you, my fans. Yesterday I checked myself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges."
