During an interview with Good Morning America that aired back in February, Manziel admitted to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder "about a year ago" and says he has been taking the proper medication. He attended the concert following a nearby golf tournament hosted by former Aggies teammate and friend, Mike Evans. It has been reported that Manziel recently had his prescription drugs adjusted and his hospitalization is due to from a bad reaction to the adjustment. After a short amount of time in the Texas hospital, Michaels said that he is "fine and headed home".

Johnny Manziel has worked very hard to get things in order in his life and he's now focusing on getting his professional football career back on track.

Manziel confirmed on his Instagram story that the reaction was linked to an increased dosage in Lithium, which he takes for his Bipolar disorder. He's now a free agent and playing in the new The Spring League.

A previous first-round National Football League pick, Manziel's career hasn't taken off like it did in college as he hasn't played professionally since 2015.
