Something had clearly gone terribly wrong in the world of Andre Johnson. The rap star, who goes by Christ Bearer and is a protege of the iconic Wu-Tang Clan, was rushed to the hospital after severing his own penis, then jumping off the second-floor balcony of his apartment building. But that's not even the worst of it.
Shockingly, after hitting the ground, Johnson was initially able to get on his feet. However, later paramedics would find him lying in a pool of his own blood. He was rushed to the hospital, and once found, his member was taken there as well. Doctors tried to reattach it but couldn't. What an absolutely devastating turn for any young man.
Neighbors are completely surprised by the situation, claiming that no one in the apartment was doing any hardcore drugs that would have led to this kind of tragic episode. Clearly the aspiring superstar is struggling with something, and presumably, this cry for help will get him the counsel and treatment that he needs. But the sad fact is he will have to live with a permanent reminder of what he did.
And if he does want to recoup his rap career, that could be difficult for him. The entire world knows that he did this horrible, unimaginable thing to himself. I am sure many fans are still asking why. It's just a reminder that we can never judge a book by its cover. In this case, here was a guy working hard at his career having some measure of success. But beneath that creative, energetic surface may have been some serious issues.
