Nikita Dragun is receiving professional mental health care in a facility after getting arrested at a Miami hotel and spending time in jail … TMZ has learned.
Nikita’s rep, Jack Ketsoyan, tells TMZ … “We want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for Nikita during this time. She is now in a safe place to address her mental health. As she seeks treatment and healing, we ask that you respect her privacy. “
We were told that Nikita started seeking treatment Wednesday night.
The transgender influencer has been open and honest about her mental health issues — in May, she posted on her YouTube channel that her diagnosis of bipolar disorder had been made.
Nikita stated that she has a family history with bipolar disorder. However, she was initially surprised at her diagnosis because she didn’t understand what bipolar meant. She says that her symptoms were not related to the disorder.
TMZ broke the story … Nikita was arrested Tuesday on a felony charge of battery on a police officer after allegedly causing a disturbance at a swanky hotel as she walked around the pool area in the nude.
According to TMZ’s police report, Nikita allegedly opened a water bottle and sprayed a security guard as well as an officer when she finally answered her door at her hotel room. This led to her arrest.
Nikita appeared in court earlier this week, she told the judge she was being kept in a men’s unit and asked to be transferred … a claim the jail denies.
Nikita was released from custody this week after posting a $5,000 bond, and shortly after that she was admitted to the facility where she’s getting treatment.
