Well, I guess there's a first time for everything. 

Lil Xan wound up in the hospital due to his obsession with Flamin' Hot Cheetos. (no joke) "I went to the hospital today," he said on Instagram Monday (September 24). "I just want to let everybody 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 so I puked a little blood." 

Xan joked about the experience in his Instagram video's caption, writing, "Just wanna let everyone know that Iโ€™m good,healthier then Iโ€™ve ever been and ready to kick of my third Tour in NY ina couple days ! Also be careful,Hot Cheetos are one hell of a drug aha ! ๐Ÿ’” love you all ! ๐Ÿ’”โ€œBe Safeโ€ Coming soon !๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”." The "Betrayed" rapper also documented his journey to the hospital on his Instagram Story, showing his view from the back of an ambulance. 

While Xan's Hot Cheetos experience may seem pretty rare, it's actually not an uncommon occurrence. Back in July, Rene Craghead told WREG that her daughter's gallbladder had to be removed after eating four bags of the chips. โ€œShe loves them. Every time I go out she says, โ€˜Bring me back some Hot Takis, bring me back some Hot Chips,'" she said. "She was eating big bags and would take them to school with her.โ€ Dr. Cary Cavender at Le Bonheur Childrenโ€™s Hospital also told WREG, โ€œWe do see tons of gastritis and ulcer-related stuff due to [hot snacks].โ€

Xan's hospitalization comes weeks after his breakup from Noah Cyrus. As previously reported, Xan and Noah called it quits earlier this month. Most recently, the public was forced to relive their short but kinda sweet romance after the music video for their joint single "Live or Die" was leaked on September 13.

Xan is preparing to kick off a two month long U.S. Tour. His first show is scheduled for Wednesday (September 26) in New York City.
