Jelly Roll Reveals He Battles Severe Depression

This is some shocking news. Nashville, Tennesse underground star Jelly Roll has always been super personal inside his music. But this time he decided to go on social media and let his fans know the truth behind battling severe depression. We here at Faygoluvers.net wish Jelly Roll nothing but the very best! And we’re extremely thankful for his amazing music! With that being said, you can read his exact post below.

From Jelly Roll Across Social Media:

“The truth is I struggle with severe depression – I’ve struggled with it my whole life. I know I go through spells where I post a lot on social media and I release a lot of music, then I have moments where I don’t even have the desire or confidence to respond to a text message more or less make a post, release a song or shoot a video. When I was younger I was diagnosed with manic depression. I have moments of extreme productivity where I feel like nothing can stop me. I’m full of energy and confidence, then I have weeks on end where I won’t answer my phone or respond to a text message. This explains my horrible posting patterns, the way I released a ton of music then to silent for a while. This also explains the constant weight gain, and occasionally I crash diet and lose a lot of weight just to regain it again. It also speaks to my addictive behavior. My constant struggle with sobriety and my binge drinking. I’ve always been afraid to make this post because frankly I’m slightly embarrassed and sadly we live in a world where when people bring up mental health issues we are immediately judged one way or the other. I also felt like those that listen to the music know how deep my sadness runs in my soul and my struggles. Though I smile, joke, and laugh a lot deep-rooted in my is an unexplainable pain. I think the reason I decided to finally post this is because I feel the need, to be honest, and also it’s my public vow to start being more transparent and hope that maybe you all will help me stay accountable at seeking help and fighting this demon. And maybe someone out there feels the way I do — maybe you can give me some pointers. Anyways thanks for listening I promise to start posting more no matter what mood I’m in, and releasing more music. I have so many new songs I want to share with y’all. Thanks for taking the time to read this.”

Stay strong Jelly Roll and please keep making kick-ass music among the underground and beyond! To anyone else battling depression, you’re not alone. People do love and care for you. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

    Maaaaan….who the fuck don’t battle depression? It’s probably 1 of the most common mental illnesses around. Of course it affects different ppl, in different ways and some harder and worse than others. All you can do is keep it pushing till you get to those moments where you’re NOT depressed. Then guess what? W out warning it’s gonna come back and the cycle runs again. Does it suck? Absolutely. I’ve dealt w it and still do. All any of us can do is make the best of our situations and hope we don’t get driven to the point where a shotgun seems like a gd last meal. But if that happens, we must come to our senses. I’ve had some low times in life but I’m still here dammit. We must be strong for ourselves before others can be strong for is bc our own strength is the only thing that matters in the end.

    Someone didn’t get enough attention during the pandemic. All these celebrities and public figures starved for attention, have to come out with some bullshit. Speak to your councelor bro. We got our own problems.

    It’s like, I get it, we’re all human and suffer from various stuffs, and while I don’t wish any of it off upon anybody else, it is funny when you see people with money say “Money isn’t everything. Money doesn’t solve problems. Money doesn’t cure depression.”

    I’d be willing to bet if you just randomly put a few hundred bucks in someone’s hands, it’d solve at least one problem or two in their lives, and likely bring a smile about in the process.

    Yea, I feel ya there J.R.
    Some days I’m sociable and tuned in with the peeps around me and the other days I’m like “Fuck ya all!!” Gotta keep on pushing through it or I’ll end up unemployed with even more problems tho.

    Zanoffs, they work, I’m down to only 3 people a day..

    I feel like it takes a certain sort of person to want to tell anyone who will listen about their problems. I don’t know about anyone else but if I’m going through some shit, I don’t wanna tell everyone I know about it, let alone broadcast it to thousands of complete strangers on the internet. I get you need to speak to people and people want to help but keep it local. Your “fans” don’t need to be your councelors.

    Jelly needs to put the fork down and start doing the Violent J daily morning walk routine. I’m sure J Roll has a Foot Locker in his hometown where he can get his hands on a comfy pair of fat-kid-approved New Balance sneaks.

    Man i really can’t fucking stand all you hateful cock suckers. Y’all need to stop comparing yourselves to him. Yeah we all get depressed, money doesn’t change the fact that the pain he feels is maximum to him. Depression doesn’t give a fuck if you are better off than other people. It probably took a lot for him to type that shit and y’all are like boohoo I’ve had it worse. Mutha fucka not everything is about you.

    I partially agree because depression is a chemical imbalance and not something that you can buy your way out of but attention seeking isn’t a chemical imbalance. You will never convince me that it’s healthy or therapeutic for anyone to broadcast their problems to strangers on Facebook and you’ll never convince me that broadcasting your problems to strangers on Facebook isn’t a form of attention seeking behaviour. There are so many more healthy places to go before you hit Facebook, to the point where you should never hit Facebook with this shit.

    I agree w that 100. There’s nothing wrong w reaching out to family or your homies bc hey, what is fam for right? But yeah, telling the world and strangers about these things isn’t the best idea. We all have depression and problems. So everytime ppl, especially ppl w celebrity come out and say this shit it always comes off generic and kinda corny. No disrespect to jellyroll at all, but let’s be real here, if any one of us just started spilling our guts to jellyroll, I doubt he’d give 2 shits even if he understood and could relate. Also it’s not like these celebrities reach out to their fans and see how theyre doing.

    Attention whores man. Look at all these celebrities during the pandemic. All doing shit to get attention because they went a whole year without getting their dicks sucked by the pubic. John Boyega getting militant at BLM rallies and on social media, that Gal Gadot “Imagine” ensemble things she did and Demi Lovato (whoever that is) basically using every opportunity she can to come out as trans or whatever and talk about her past addictions. Dickheads.

    Not to stray off topic and get into a whole other thing but I think celebrities like the ones you mentioned are encouraged (maybe even forced?) to push these particular agendas. It gets ppl thinking like them and if it doesn’t it stirs up conflict w ppl that don’t agree w said agenda.
    As for jellyroll and other rich celebrities, I hate to bring up the money, but having money gives them the advantage and bigger opportunity to heal. He and other celebrities or ppl in general w money can afford professional help for example. They can pick up and support healthy hobbies that bring them joy. Idk how many ppl don’t see or realize this but I think that’s why most of us don’t care to hear about XYZ celebrity and their “depression”.

    Maybe he’s done trying to outrun his demons & he’s ready to become a slayer. Taking that first honest step takes balls. Cheers, Jelly.
