Christ Bearer is reportedly opening up about why he cut off his penis.

Nearly one month after the rapper reportedly removed his penis and then jumped from a two-story balcony in an attempted suicide, Bearer (aka Andre Johnson) is speaking out, revealing his struggles with depression.

In a new interview with TMZ, Bearer explained that the reason behind his insane act was depression over not being able to see his daughters. According to Bearer, he was feeling depressed and lonely on the night that the incident went down as a result of two restraining orders, which have prevented him from seeing his kids.

On April 16 around 1 a.m., cops were called to an apartment building in North Hollywood, Calif. When they arrived, they found Bearer on the sidewalk, critically injured and without his penis. Paramedics arrived shortly thereafter and transported Bearer to the Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

It was later revealed that Bearer had been hanging out in the building with a couple of other men when, out of nowhere, Bearer jumped up, chopped off his penis and leapt off of the balcony. Although the men rushed to where he had been in the apartment, he had already jumped and was lying below, screaming in pain.

TMZ reported that while it was initially unknown whether or not doctors would be able to successfully reattach the penis, it has since been reconstructed by plastic surgeons and can now function fully. However, Bearer will likely be unable to have kids in the future.
