When it showed up on my newsfeed, I was speechless, hoping i wasnt seeing what i was reading...but it's true.
As a fan, i feel completely betrayed, not by Crashdiet, of course, but by Simon - and i'm sure they do as well.
i have a few theories on why Simon may have randomly jumped ship:
1. GIRLFRIEND: 3 months ago, he posted a photo holding a rose on Instagram, then a month later, a photo of a woman sitting on a couch. he's so cryptic on social media that it's hard to tell, but it's a possibility...even though all of the guys in Crashdiet appear to be taken and they have no issues...
2. DRUGS: they say Simon was sick in Japan, so Crashdiet preformed without him as a trio. You would think being sick would not make a person leave their band in the midst of an important tour across the world...here is a screenshot of a post he made days before the mini-tour:
sickening state of mind...burnt upon a stove...for some reason that makes me think of drugs (you'd be surprised what you can make with simple household things...) plus, him being sick in Japan could've been caused by withdraws. it's a thought.
3. MENTAL ILLNESS: he's always been cryptic on Facebook, and let's face it: a lot of creative people are a little insane. Not to mention, a frequent commenter on his FB page, (also seen all over his Instagram,) a lady called "Bex Nash" has been posting some pretty personal things - saying that if he is "battling darkness again" that she is here for him and that they've had conversations about it before.
