Lil Xan announces rehab stint after the death of “idol” Mac Miller

"I couldn’t be happier with this choice"

Lil Xan has announced that he’s heading to rehab in a bid to tackle his addictions after the death of Mac Miller.

The rapper revealed that he was seeking treatment in a since-deleted Instagram post, claiming that he “can’t wait to get back clean”.

“I just dropped out of SoundCloud Uni to go to rehab, I leave in like 5 days And I couldn’t be happier with this choice,” Lil Xan said.

“Love you guys for being so supportive and can’t wait too get back clean headed ready to Finish my album!”

Only hours before announcing the rehab stint on Instagram, the rapper had told TMZ how Miller’s death from an apparent drugs overdose in September had acted as a wake up call.

“The worst one that affected me the most, Mac Miller”, the star admitted.

“It hit too close to home so…and I know we both struggle with the same problems and stuff and I just feel like it’s time to get, you know, better.”

When asked about the drugs he was specifically addicted to, Xan replied: “Mostly with Hydrocodone. Norcos is what they call them. Basically, a lot of opioids.

“I’ve been way worse in the past, I’ve actually been 10 times worse than what I’ve been now, but I want to do rehab just so I can get over this last little hump, like stretch, so I could finally be back to Diego.”

Meanwhile, he was forced to cancel a show last month after a man posted videos threatening him with an AK-47.
