Houston Edwards Summers was born on October 26, 1983, In Los Angeles. He also attended the Academy of Music at Hamilton High School. Later a management team recorded a videotape of Summer’s performances, which they hoped would help him get a contract at Capitol Records. He later earned his big break In 2004 with his debut single “I like that,” featuring Chingy and Nate Dogg. It peaked at number 11 on the charts, and his album titled “Already Written” was certified gold upon its release.
Let’s Get Scandalous
It was a day while Houston was on tour In London, England, and while at the time, Houston was feeling pressured. Everything was moving so fast, and his life was being turned upside down. One minute he’s singing at his hometown or in the choir. And the next he’s touring the world, that came with one hit record. He was being pulled from many different directions. An average person will embrace this, but an emotional imbalance and drug user would go crazy. So, while in London, England, Houston suffered an emotional breakdown and reportedly tried to commit suicide by jumping from a hotel window while under the influence of PCP. When people in his entourage stopped him, he was restrained and locked in a first-floor room. While in that room, Summers gouged his left eye out with a plastic fork.
After the incident, Summers was arrested by London police and was sent to a rehabilitation facility. After a two-week stint in rehab, Houston went home to Los Angeles and apologized for the incident. Houston attributed the incident to stress caused by the music industry, saying,
“Everything was clobbering down on me. Everything was going a little bit too hard on me”.
Since then, his career has never been the same. It was told that they wanted him to commit to things he didn’t want to commit to. He tried to leave, they then locked him in the room, and he’d threaten to kill himself or gouged his eye If they didn’t let him out. And he did. But at the end of the day, he still had to agree to their terms, so she made the statement blaming himself. People, before you decide on something too good to be true. Make sure your mind is right, and you have the support you need. Because If you don’t, you’re going to be thrown In a pool full of leeches alone. Well, that’s it. Let me know what you all think below.
