Chris Huvane Suffered From Depression
Cole works on Travis Scott’s management team.
Last July, Chris opened up about depression on Facebook, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Chris posted a picture of himself volunteering with Habitat for Humanity.
He wrote, “I remember this day vividly. It was week four of a crippling depression that lasted for a long time and still leaves me with shrapnel to this day. I was finding it hard to find motivation to live despite having an abundance of reasons to live. Brain was wired incorrectly causing me to have panic attacks for the first time in my forty-four years. Finding a little motivation helped. It actually got worse for me after this exact day but seeing the photo really reminded me of that time in my life. Moral of the today is that shit can and will get better. You will need a lot of help from a lot of people. Learn to trust. You all know who you are.”
Rest in peace, Chris.
