Lewis Capaldi had to be rescued from a one night stand by his mum
| Last updated
Lewis Capaldi has once again proved just how painfully relatable he is. Prepare to be reminded of when your parents last outed some of your personal information:
There's nothing like an awkward chat with your parents about sex, or your parents publicly dropping you in it.
In the trailer for his upcoming Netflix documentary, Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now, the 26-year-old opens up about his struggles with anxiety and how his career has impacted his mental wellbeing.
While vulnerably opening up about his rollercoaster journey to becoming a star, the trailer also sees Lewis' mum, Carol, teasing him about a one night stand he had.
In the trailer, Carol reflects her son still has 'a lot of growing up to do'.
She says: "You need to phone your mother to come and pick you up from your one night stand."
"That's not a story that needs to be told," Lewis responds.
However, as mothers do, Carol continues anyway: "Because you were having a panic attack."
Lewis simply adds: "Glad you brought that up."
Capaldi previously opened up about his panic attacks in an interview with Steven Bartlett for his podcast The Diary of a CEO.
As well as having anxiety, Capaldi spoke about his experiences as a hypochondriac and how his mum - a nurse - has helped support him.
He said: "If I phone her and I say, 'Mum, I've got a headache, I'm dizzy, I think I've got a brain tumour or something,' she'll be like, 'Shut the f**k up, you're fine. Take some paracetamol and go to bed.
"If I'm having a panic attack there's nobody else that can help me out of it except my mum, for sure.
"My mum has had to sleep in my bed as recently as a month ago because of how bad my anxiety got at one point. But I think that was alcohol related to be honest, I had been on a bit of a bender."
Capaldi also revealed he'd never had a panic attack before he became famous.
"It never really reached a tipping point until after getting famous, I never had a panic attack until after I was famous, or after I was a musician or after I got to a height," he continues. "The hypochondria - I guess looking back, I was such an anxious kid, but now because I understand it a lot more with therapy and I speak about it a lot more with people and try to learn more about it, I look back at it and think the behaviour was a result of anxiety."
Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now is set for release on 5 April and will be available to watch exclusively on Netflix.
