Ginuwine Admits Multiple Suicide Attempts, Drug Habit

R&B singer Ginuwine, after loosing his father and mother, says he attempted to commit suicide more than once. “After my father shot himself to death and my mother died from cancer less than a year later, I really didn’t want to live anymore,” Ginuwine tells Essence. According to the former “Pony” and “Differences” singer, life became emotionally and mentally unbearable to the point where ending it all seemed to be the only option. “I didn’t want to live and tried to commit suicide more than once. There was no one around that I really loved at the time, so I turned to the drinking and drugs like weed and ecstasy. I was done mentally and emotionally to the point that I had to go see a psychiatrist… in fact, the two times I visited him I was high,” Ginuwine goes on to admit in the shocking Essence exclusive. After attempting suicide, drugs and professional help from a psychiatrist, Ginuwine is back with a new album and lease on life. His new album, “A Man’s Thoughts” is due in stores Tuesday, June 23 under a new recording deal with Notifi Records.
