TMZ: LIONEL RICHIE'S BASSIST STABS HIMSELF REPEATEDLY After Ingesting Edibles

source

Lionel Richie's bassist had a horrific reaction after eating edibles ... as in he repeatedly stabbed himself.

Law enforcement sources tell us a 911 call came in at around 10 PM Tuesday ... the caller reporting a stabbing victim. Paramedics rushed to a San Fernando Valley apartment where they found Ethan Farmer bleeding profusely.

We're told Farmer -- who's also toured with New Kids on the Block -- had eaten either pot brownies or cookies and went off the rails, stabbing himself all over his body.

Turns out, the 42-year-old had some friends over and they were chowing down on edibles when Farmer suddenly turned violent on himself.

He was taken to a hospital where he remains as of Friday night. We don't know his condition.

We spoke to Ethan but he wouldn't say anything about the incident other than that he's recovering.

Sounds like something else might have been in the edibles. Bath salts perhaps? PCP?

I had a horrible experience with edibles a couple of years ago, my first time ever trying it. Someone gave me a lollipop. Looked like a slightly larger BlowPop. Not huge, but a tad larger. I ate the whole thing in about 30 minutes.

The next 24 hours was the worst experience of my life, and for the week after I could barely eat just out of fear of throwing up. My roommate was checking on me every half hour while I was in and out of consciousness. I remember some of it. No one told me how to approach it or what not to do. I had no desire to stab myself. But other things happened.

Never again. Ever.

PS last fall I told a friend about the whole thing. He looked up the maker of it, and found it was 50x stronger than the maximum allowed in California.

It's not a headline you see every day.


I would find it easier to believe if it said: "Lionel Richie's Bassist Stabs Himself Repeatedly After Listening to 'Dancing on the Ceiling 10 times on repeat'!"
