Andre — Twitter Community Shocked By Rapper Cutting Off Own Penis
During the early morning hours of April 17, Andre severed his own penis, and then leapt from the second floor of an apartment building, according to Los Angeles Police Sgt. William Mann.
He was found later that morning on the sidewalk and rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where doctors attempted to reattach his penis. Sadly, they were unsuccessful, reports the DailyMail.
What do you think HollywoodLifers, do you think Andre was not in his right mind before he jumped? Tell us what’s on your minds.
