The young musician had his fair share of ups and downs.

In recent years, he has dealt with domestic violence accusations, which were denied, and charges of cultural appropriation.

In 2014, when he was 24 years old, Chet announced he went to rehab for cocaine addiction. He then praised AA and NA programs saying they have helped him tremendously, allowing him to “rise above this disease.”

Comedian Eric Andre recently described Chet as “emotionally disturbed” while working on his show.
