‘Lipo surgery got me hooked on drugs!’
During his rant on TMZ Live, Kanye revealed he’d become addicted to opioids after undergoing liposuction in 2016.
“I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all,” he blasted. “I got liposuction because I didn’t want y’all to call me fat like y’all called Rob at the wedding and made him fly home before me and Kim got married.”
He then revealed, “And they gave me opioids, right? And I started taking two of them and driving to work on the opioids, right?”
However, when a member of his entourage told him that the drugs “kills genius” he decided to go cold turkey. Two days later, he was admitted to hospital for treatment, and when he left he was taking seven prescribed pills a day.
The rapper also hit out at the medical industry for starting his addiction, saying, “I was taking two pills a day at that time. When I left the hospital, how many pills do you think I was given? Seven. I went from taking two pills to taking seven. I was drugged the f**k out bro.”
Explaining why he was no longer taking his medication he added, “Y’all have me scared, of myself, my vision, so I took some pills so I wouldn’t go to hospital and prove everyone right.”
