US Hardcore Band Boots Singer For Secretly Dosing His Bandmate With Oestrogen

In one of the most truly cooked stories to emerge from the world of heavy music this week (or, perhaps, ever) a US hardcore band has turfed their lead singer after he allegedly spent months secretly dosing his bandmate with female hormones in a hare-brained attempt to make said bandmate less masculine-looking and hopefully steal his fiancée.

Tennessee hardcore band Llorona shared the bizarre story on their socials this week, revealing that they had fired their vocalist, Diego, after he got drunk and admitted to the whole thing.

 “What he did is disgusting”

“We have decided to part ways with our vocalist Diego due to admission of very disturbing and concerning behaviour towards one of our band members and their partner,” the band’s official statement read.

“He has admitted to being obsessed with said partner, and has been attempting to sabotage their relationship by cutting pre workout he frequently gifts from his job with high amounts of oestrogen in them.”

The statement continued: “He has been attempting to force a transition onto him for the last 5 months, in hopes that would give him the opportunity to ‘swoop in’ once he looked stronger and more manly in comparison. (Stupid cave man mindset that makes zero sense) This tampering has caused confusion and thousands of dollars in medical bills the past months trying to figure out whats wrong.

“We would not know any of this unless Diego had gotten way too intoxicated and ousted himself, and then stated an admission to all of this via text. There are many more disgusting details that have been left out for the sake of privacy and general censorship.”

The band member who was the target of the scheme, who goes by the name Sixx, went on to describe his horrific experience being drugged.

“I am going to be seeing an endocrinologist over the next few months to track my hormonal fluctuations to see if my oestrogen levels are extremely heightened and go back to normal over time,” he said. “I have had physical changes from the hormones besides stomach ulcers, weight loss, and muscle fatigue that I will not get into, as well as notable mental changes.”

He also added that he plans to get the last batch of “pre workout” that the singer gave him tested for the hormones.

“I have about 2-3 full cups of it left,” Sixx said. “He will not pass off what he admitted to as a joke or confusion even in his state of drunkenness. What he did is disgusting and has had an immense negative effect on my life.”

At the time of writing, Llorona’s Instagram page has been deleted, so the original images are no longer available, but you can peep some of the screenshots from their Stories down below.
