Bodybuilder and “Mr. Universe” Calum von Moger is in bad condition after trying to take his own life. The media personality is currently fighting to live again. All of this comes after the 31-year-old Australian bodybuilder shared an emotional message with his fans and reportedly jumped from a second-story window afterward.
“Everyone has a past. We’ve all been through hard times. I admit, I messed up bad many times,” he wrote in the Instagram post. “But I don’t care about dwelling on negative thoughts of the past. All I care about is that I learn from my mistakes and become a better person. The positive achievements I’ve done in my life far outweigh the muck-ups I had along the way. All I can ask is for your forgiveness so I can keep moving forward on the right path again,” he added.
His fellow bodybuilder and Youtuber Nick Trigilli claimed that the star was in a “rough spot” and definitely intoxicated when he tried to jump to his death. “I hope this is rock bottom for him and he can get his life back,” commented Trigilli.
What happened to Calum von Moger?
It is true that Moger has been going through some difficult times lately. Earlier this year, he was charged with affray, criminal injury and possession of drugs, including cannabis, meth and testosterone, according to reports. He had also been involved in a number of incidents of road rage and possession of a weapon, and had been kicked out of his family home in Australia.
According to Generation Iron, a popular Australian bodybuilding website, Calum von Moger is in the ICU currently where he has undergone surgery to treat his broken spine, which came as a result of his suicide attempt.
A little bit on the bodybuilder
He is also renowned for playing the role of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 2018 film “Bigger,” and is a regular in “Generation iron 2.” He has released a documentary on Netflix in 2019 titled “Calum von Moger: Unbroken.” In his documentary, he opened up about his bodybuilding journey. According to him, it ended when he suffered serious injuries in the knee and bicep while rappelling. “I was pretty broken – pretty heartbroken,” he said on the film. In the same year, he lost his home to the Australian wildfires.
Moger also opened up about his steroid usage in the past where he claimed that he didn’t begin using them until he was 21 when his mentor told him, “If you want a place in the top five (in the open division), you have to take steroids.” He opened up about this in a video posted on his YouTube channel.
Fans’ reaction to his suicide attempt
Fans have already jumped in to show compassion for the bodybuilder during these tough times. “Praying for you man,” wrote a fan under his latest Instagram post. “You were my first inspiration with fitness and I’m hoping you get through these hard times,” they added.
“Praying for you. Pray for this man everyone,” added another. “Praying for you big guy… and you know I don’t just say that,” wrote another fan.
