The actor discussed on a reality show Behind Closed Door that he is extreme bipolar, he has mood swings. There will be time when you will love him and then there will be those where who’d just want to slap him with iron rod. He said, ‘Sometimes you’re gonna like me, and sometimes you’re gonna hate me. But what can I do?’

Jean-Claude further added, “I’m not perfect…I’m an extreme bipolar, and I’m taking medication for this…When I was young, I was suffering those swing moods. In the morning, the sky was blue [when I was] going to school, and to me, the sky was black. I was so sad.”
