“Why I Chopped Off My P#nis” – Musician Reveals
A United States, US, rapper, Andre Johnson, has explained why he chopped off his penis during a party and then jumped off a second-floor balcony.
Speaking with BBC, the Los Angeles rapper said;
“At the back of my mind, my issues were eating me. I was thinking my interaction with women have been just callous, no moral code.
“I said I will fix this problem that is causing me so much misery. That’s when I think the insanity kicked in. I said, ‘Yo, my dick is outta control. I need a vasectomy.”
Johnson had in April 2014 yanked off his penis.
Following his action, the rapper was hospitalised and diagnosed with having suffered a period of severe depression, this led to him being referred to a psychiatrist.
Describing his unusual action, the rapper said,
“I just jumped up, out of nowhere and I went to the kitchen.
“I grabbed a knife and, bam, I pulled down my pants and (he mimes a chopping motion) … that quick.”
He assured that though doctors were unable to reattach the severed part of his penis after a life-saving surgery, that doesn’t mean that he can’t have sex.
“When I’m actually having the act of sex, it’s not like, ‘Oh I wish I still had my penis. It’s like, I’m in there. Like it used to be,” he said.
Confessing to using drugs and alcohol, Johnson said;
“When we have mental health issues, we turn to drugs – you know, smoke this, have a drink.”
