This isn’t the first time the star has spoke candidly about his health. Back in December 2017, he detailed the events that caused tour dates to be cancelled three months earlier, revealing he spent a week in intensive care after a doctor found “abnormalities” in his brain.

In September 2017, he opened up to the Times about his mental wellbeing, explaining how fame has affected him.
