“I’ve always prided myself on my transparency” he said, “in tow with sharing every part of my life & myself with my family, friends & my fans… the past two weeks have been a nightmare for me. I have witnessed disloyalty on levels unimaginable by people I’ve trusted with my heart, money, career & livelihood. Not only have I been backstabbed & betrayed.. I’ve been left to pick up the pieces alone.”

The Game also revealed that he’s been in physical therapy for two weeks to help with inflammed muscles and a bruised tailbone due to overextending himself from working out. Additionally, he had an accident over the weekend in which he cut his “finger to the bone” and had to get six stitches.
