NEWS: Rapper Andy Mineo Offers Ronda Rousey Christ After She Admits Suicidal Thoughts

In a recent interview with Ellen Degeneres, MMA fighter
Ronda Rousey admitted that after her loss to Holly Holm last year, she
contemplated suicide. Reach Records rapper Andy Mineo, noticeably
touched by her comments, offered some advice.
“MAN! This strikes a
chord for me. So often our identities are found in what we do. But what
we do isn’t who we truly are. Every public figure fears the day that
their ‘moment’ will be over. When there will be somebody else newer,
younger, better… and that terrifies us,” Mineo wrote on Facebook after hearing about Rousey’s suicidal admission.
Rousey
is a successful American mixed martial artist and actress. The former
UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion opened up to Degeneres on her Feb.
15th program about the thoughts that ran through her mind after experiencing her first career loss and losing her title.
“Honestly,
my thought…I was like, in the medical room and I was down in the
corner and I was sitting in the corner like, ‘What am I anymore if I’m
not this? I was literally sitting there and thinking about killing
myself and that exact second. I’m like, ‘I’m nothing; what do I do
anymore? And no one gives a s*** about me anymore without this,” Rousey
admitted.
Mineo, a
rapper who has built his career promoting a counter cultural message
with his Christian faith, sympathized with the popular athlete further.
“I struggle with my own identity often. My accomplishments are
fleeting. What has been able to keep me in my greatest moments of
struggle is my faith in Jesus. Knowing God gives me identity and
validation that no person can take away.” Mineo continued, “If I
succeed, He loves me. If I fail miserably, He loves me. He calls me His
son – and like any good father – His love for his children isn’t based
on performance.”
He ended his post by wishing her luck on her next
match. “Just know you are made in the image of God, valuable and loved
regardless the outcome. Blessings!” he concluded.
Although
Rousey did not mention having a divine intervention to stop her from
suicide, she fortunately had an amazing support system by her side. She
said looking at her boyfriend Travis Browne standing outside of her
hospital room made her realize that she needs to live because she has
yet to have “his babies.”
Rosey has had it rough since birth. According to biography.com,
she nearly died after being born with her umbilical cord wrapped around
her neck, which caused slight brain damage and impeded her ability to
speak until she was 6. Then soon after, at the age of 8, the California
native was faced with the tragedy of her father’s suicide.
