In an upcoming episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk series, Kid Cudi opened up about mental health and why he felt keeping his issues hidden wasn’t the right move.
“I was really good at keeping my troubles hidden… even from my friends,” Cudi told Jada, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and Willow Smith. “I really was good with that. And it’s scary because you hear people say, ‘I had no clue.'”
After some personal comments from Willow about how this can make one’s friends feel, Cudi continued: “I really went out of my way to keep what I was going through hidden because I was ashamed,” he said.
The full new episode drops via Facebook Watch Monday, but get into the preview below.
