Fall Out Boy man in suicide admission

Pete Wentz: 'I tried to kill myself'
Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz has revealed that he tried to commit suicide couple of years ago.

In an attempt to take his own life Wentz took an excessive amount of prescription anti-depression drug Ativan.

Speaking to MTV News the bassist said: "I got in my car. I remember I was listening to Jeff Buckley doing Leonard Cohen's ‘Hallelujah’ and sat there and took a bunch of Ativan in a Best Buy parking lot.

"I called up my manager because I was, at that point, completely out of my head with Ativan. And I was talking to him and I was slurring my words, so he called my mom and my mom called me and she came and got me and we went to the hospital."

Wentz has since signed up to the Half Of Us suicide prevention campaign organised by the Jed Foundation, alongside the likes of Mary J Blige and Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan.
