Kevin was in a bad mental state of mind and trauma that made him ready to take his life, but a fan convinced him not to go through this all.

He revealed that before a year in 2021, he was at the point where he didn't want to live anymore. 

It was his daughter's party when he convinced himself that he would never see her again as he didn't want to live. 

He turned his social media account down when asked what caused him in this situation. 

He said there were many problems, and he was going through many pressures in life.
