The rapper is indeed popular, but his fame, did not make the troubles in the industry elude him. Sometimes, being wealthy and well known is not the answer to some difficult emotional and personal issues. The rapper went through a great deal, trying to climb up the ladder of success, and at a point, he almost quit. Thankfully, he didn’t.

Recently, Diddy opened up on his struggles with depression, and how it almost cost him everything in his life.

“I wanted to give up.” He said.


In an intense and sad video, recently shared by the rapper, he explained in detail why and how 2019 was a bad year for him. At the beginning of the year, Diddy was in a bad place because few months back, his ex-friend, Kimberly was found not breathing anymore in her home. Although they had broken up since 2007, her death was disturbing for the rapper, and he had to take care of their four children alone.

Moving on, Diddy and his current girlfriend at the time, Cassie Ventura, split up, after ten years together.


The rapper did everything he could to get Ventura back, but his efforts proved futile. One time, he posted a lovely picture of the singer and actress, hoping that he could get her back, but that did not happen. A few days later, Ventura made it clear on Instagram that her and Diddy could never come back together, and she was expecting her first child with another man.

On New Year’s Eve, Diddy took to Instagram to share a worrisome video, where he encouraged anyone going through a hard time, to know that they are not in it alone.

He also recounted the events that took place in 2019. He said that while dealing with heartbreak and loss of a loved one, he unconsciously succumbed to depression. He also went on to say that 2019 was the year he wanted to throw it all away and give up, but he decided to stay strong.

One of the ways he was able to deal with his hurt, was with the help of his friends and people around him, whom he said helped to lift him up.
