Sentinels’ Valorant pro Hunter “SicK” Mims continues to exhibit erratic behavior on Twitter. SicK’s situation has fans and fellow pro players worried. What happened to SicK? It seems to be an accumulation of untreated mental health issues.
SicK first opened up about his mental health issues back in 2022. At the time, the player admitted that he had been struggling for some time and that he couldn’t fulfill his responsibilities with the team. At the time, SicK received support from the community.
Timeline of SicK legal issues
In 2023, SicK has had multiple encounters with the law, which ultimately led to his benching.
On March 6, it transpired that SicK had been arrested, according to documents from the Collin County Jail. SicK got into an altercation with employees at a Ferrari car dealership, who asked him to leave the premises. He also shared a short video of the incident on his social media.
SicK spent over a week in detention until Sentinels paid for the $5,000 bail. According to the organization, they flew SicK’s sister to pick him up.
The incident is believed to have been triggered by the breakup between the pro player and his girlfriend. The young woman, who goes by the name of Kissubie online, explained they used to be in an open relationship and had broken up. She also added they were not on speaking terms.
Since then, Kissubie has deleted most of her accounts on social media and set her Twitter to private.
The couple shared brief moments on their respective Twitch streams. Some of these streams can be dated back to 2021.
Through Twitter, G2 Esports’ player and SicK’s former teammate Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan asked people to ignore the player’s online behavior.
“Hey guys, I have Sick blocked so I can make this tweet. He’s not himself right now, please try your best to ignore his tweets and erratic behavior for now. I promise this isn’t who he is. Thanks for being understanding.” ShahZam said.
At this point, several parties had reported that SicK was avoiding communication with friends and family. It was confirmed by the player himself, who claimed he couldn’t interact with people close to him.
SicK shared a screenshot showing he was blocked by ShahZaM. That same day, he shared a picture of drugs and asked for the government’s abolishment.
On May 9, it was reported that SicK was arrested again for criminal trespassing. Since his release from jail, the pro player has been on a Twitter rampage.
SicK is claiming the FBI is after him. He has been consistently sending tweets at United States President Joe Biden.
Sentinels is yet to release any kind of statement regarding SicK’s position within the team. People around SicK are showing their intention to help and provide him with tools to get better. While getting support is part of the journey, the ball is in SicK’s court right now.
