XXXTentacion Tells Fans He’s Disappearing for a While
The mysterious XXXTentacion is about to get even more mysterious. On Wednesday night (July 19), the 2017 XXL Freshman uploaded a social media post indicating he'd be spending some time out of the public eye.
"I'm going to disappear for a little while," he said in the cryptic post. "I love you all." See a screenshot of the seemingly random post for yourself below.
X's newly announced self-imposed exile arrives just about a month after he revealed he was postponing the remainder of his Revenge tour. He named the shooting of his cousin and his desire to support him as the reason for pausing the trek.
The Florida rapper's decision to abandon the spotlight for a while comes a few months after getting out of jail, which is the place that forced him to leave it in the first place. Since then, he's seen his stardom shoot to new levels, though it hasn't come without a few problems.
During a stop in San Diego, X was punched in the face while performing "Garette's Revenge." A day later, he said he wouldn't be getting more security and that violence and hate were to be expected when you're young and thriving.
“I just know it’s people hating pretty much,” X tells the celebrity gossip site. “People just being haters. At the end of the day like, to be 19 years old and have this amount of success… there’s going to be a lot of problems. It’s not something I wasn’t ready for. So I mean, I’m just gonna take it like a man and be a man about the situation and do what I gotta do.”
