I did read the article, I know what he said his dad did and he makes it clear he's just fine financially, he still had a bunch of money left on his deal, nothing he should have been financially physically or emotionally crippled by,
You make it sound as though his Dad told him he couldn't go to a concert, and so he went into a depression that ruined his career. Which, by the way, can and does put people with depression over the age in extreme cases. His father, who he trusted, stole his hard-earned money, stalked him, tried to blackmail him, and generally made his life miserable. His father also was the reason some teams did not sign Brule. PLUS he was put on antidepressants (kind of hastily) that in some cases make the problem worse.
So I would think emotionally the whole situation is similar to going through a complicated divorce, losing one's ability to do their job, earn money the only way he knows how, and pretty much losing a father without him actually dying. IMO that's more than just an argument.
