Bebe Rexha says she went public with her bipolar disorder diagnosis in 2019 to “free” herself from fear.
The 30-year-old singer explained why she shared her diagnosis and discussed her experience with the mental health condition in a new interview with Self magazine.
Rexha went public with her diagnosis on Twitter in April. She said she initially had a breakdown after learning she has bipolar disorder, a mental disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, including depressive lows and manic highs. “I was very fearful,” Rexha recalled. “I didn’t want to think there was something wrong with me.”
