Lil Xan presumably won’t be eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos again after the popular snack left him hospitalized.
The rapper took to his Instagram page on Monday, where he stressed to his 5 million followers that his high consumption of Hot Cheetos led to the urgent need for medical assistance.
In his Instagram video, the Betrayed hitmaker – who used to date Noah Cyrus – explained: ‘Yeah, I went to the hospital today.’

‘I just want to let everyone know I was in the hospital not due to any drugs, but I guess I ate too many Hot Cheetos, and it ripped something in my stomach open.’
Shocked fans were quick to question Xan’s version of events in the comment section, adding that they had found it odd for someone to be hospitalized because they had indulged in a spicy snack.
Lil Xan has made it no secret that he’s battled a serious drug habit in the past.
In October 2017, the California native opened up about his former addiction to Xanax.

Candidly speaking to Genius, Xan reveals: ‘I was painfully addicted to Xans for, like, two years of my life.’
‘Anyone trying to tell me I’m a poser can shut the fuck up. I know what it’s like to be addicted to that. I was lucky enough to get off that shit.’
Xan goes on to reflect on the previous attempts he made to stay off the drugs and remain sober.
His wake-up call, however, appeared to have come during one hospital visit where the Live or Die hitmaker wondered how long his body could tolerate the consistent drug intake.

‘I definitely learned that lesson after ending up in the hospital from withdrawing,’ Lil Xan explained, adding that his hit song Betrayal was actually written to help his impressionable fans steer clear of any drugs.
‘This ain’t fun, I can’t live this life.’ A lot of rappers don’t really be talking about not doing drugs. You know, it’s like the opposite way, so it’s refreshing, I think.’
While his loyal Instagram followers appeared worried for the star following his most recent hospitalization, Lil Xan assured fans that he was doing just fine.
In fact, his plans to move forward with his Total Xanarchy Tour haven’t changed either.
‘Just wanna let everyone know that I’m good, healthier than I’ve ever been and ready to kick off my third Tour in NY ina couple days ! Also be careful, Hot Cheetos are one hell of a drug aha !’
