Nearly a year ago, Chris Peluso’s pals Rebecca LaChance and Tim Oxbrow revealed that the performer had quit his job because of a schizoaffective disease.
“This diagnosis has resulted in Chris experiencing debilitating paranoia, which has kept him from performing in recent years,” LaChance and Oxbrow wrote in a September 2022 GoFundMe fundraiser. “As well as affecting his capacity to work in the field he built his career in over the last 18 years, Chris’s mental health has affected every aspect of his life.”
“In recent months, the paranoia has consumed him to the extent that he is unable to work any job and has had to leave his wife and young child and return to America to seek treatment,” the GoFundMe read. “Chris has no health care insurance in the US and was recently hospitalized for about two weeks. Currently, he is seeking treatment at an inpatient mental health rehabilitation center.”
A few months later, Chris wrote in the GoFundMe that he had shown positive progress and was “able to hold down a job again and even began taping some auditions.”
Besides two beautiful children, Chris and Jessica also were parents to their fur baby Peety. In 2020, Chris wrote, “Happiest of Birthdays to the master of the house! 🥳15!!!!🥳 to celebrate his 15th year I’m going to try and post a different picture each day. Please DM me any pics that I might not have :)”
