(CelebrityAccess) – Earl Sweatshirt has canceled a number of upcoming European tour dates citing struggles with anxiety and depression following the recent death of his father.
A statement released over the weekend on the rapper’s behalf read: “Earl is battling anxiety and depression which has been compounded by the grief from the recent passing of his father. He thought he would be ready to perform but simply is not yet able to. He would like to apologize to his fans and promises to be back as soon as he is able to.”
His father, Keorapetse Kgositsile, was an activist and South African poet laureate. Kgositsile passed away in January 2018 at the age of 79.
