“Hi, my name is not Katya. I am Brian, a recovering drug addict and workaholic,” he wrote on his social media.

“I need to take some personal time for my mental health to heal and recover. All of my tours and shows will be postponed until 2019. Local venues will provide an update over the next several weeks. I love you all and love is more powerful than money. And because this is ‘online,’ I have to tell a joke so you know I’m serious: I still hate Taylor Swift. Peace be with you.”
