After causing alarm during his recent performance, the singer has reassured fans that he’s not on drugs. During his show at the FedExForum in Memphis on Friday, Post addressed the viral video that shows him collapsing to the floor while performing “I Fall Apart” in Nashville.
After the troubling video spread online, fans become worried for his well-being. But he told them that he is not using drugs. In fact, he’s never felt better.
“I’m not on drugs and I feel the best I’ve ever felt,” Post said to cheers from the crowd. “And that’s why I can bust my ass for these shows and fuckin’ fall on the floor and do all that fun shit, man.”
He also thanked them for their concern. “But for anybody that’s concerned here, I appreciate the love and the support. I feel fuckin’ fantastic and I’m not doing drugs,” he said as he raised a cup in the air.
His manager Dre London also calmed any fears. “Thanks for you concerns!” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m sure I would have let you know if something was wrong! Falling while performing ‘I Fall Apart’ guys.”
While many were worried about his health after watching the video, others noted that this was just part of Post’s performance and that he regularly gets low to the ground when he performs. A video showed him after the show, speaking to fans and signing autographs.
In his recent GQ Style cover story, Post was asked about the drug-related deaths of his peers including Mac Miller, Lil Peep, and Juice WRLD. “That could have been me,” he said.
Post is currently on his “Runaway Tour,” which began in September and wraps later this month.
