Sia reveals she was’suicidal’ and ‘went to rehab’!
Sia is speaking out about the backlash she received following the release of her film, Music.
Sia confessed that she went to rehab after the reaction she received for her feature film directorial debut for its portrayal of autism; in a new biography about the 46-year-old entertainer’s close pal Kathy Griffin.
“I was suicidal, relapsed, and went to rehab” Sia told The New York Times; before thanking Kathy for assisting her in her recovery after the Music criticism led her down a downhill spiral.
Sia said, “She saved my life.”
Sia justified casting Maddie Ziegler as the autistic teen in the film back in 2020, saying Australia’s 10 News First that she “really tried working with a gorgeous young girl nonverbal on the spectrum” but “found it unpleasant and frustrating.”
