AZEALIA Bank left fans fearing she was suicidal after the rapper said she was “ready to go” in a new Instagram post.
The 29-year-old also claimed the pandemic and recent “public ridicule” had made life “harder than it’s worth.”
She said on her Instagram Stories: “Yeah, I think I’m done here.
“This pandemic, extreme lack of social interaction, no intimacy, combined with constant public ridicule is making life harder than it’s worth.”
“I think I will end my tenure here on Earth soon.”
She continued with another troubling message: “I’m not begging for attention or asking for sympathy/empathy.
“I’m just ready to go. Peacefully, of course.
“I will document my last times and release a film for you all to finally understand me, from my perspective.”
The Luxury rapper finished by saying her “soul is tired,” and she’s “ready to go.”
Hours later, she assured fans she was “fine” – but followers were still concerned.
Supporters rushed to social media to plead with the star to get help.
One Twitter user wrote: “I might not listen to her but she is a human being and her existence matters, you have people who love you, please don’t do this.
“I might not understand your pain but know, everyone is worth something in life.”
A second commented: “This should be taken seriously. I hope she gets the help she needs before it’s too late.”
A third wrote: “I don’t care if you like her or not, this is something clearly going through it, please be respectful.”
Fellow rapper Missy Elliot commented: “Praying for her peace of mind. May she be surrounded with people who will protect and cover her with love and strength.”
Other fans spoke more about the public’s treatment of the rapper after she first opened up about her mental health issues a few years ago.
A follower wrote: “I hate how Azealia is seen as a ‘villain’ and is blamed and ridiculed for everything she does despite explaining several times her mental health conditions, but Kanye is always coddled and excused for his behavior. The hate black women receive is appalling.”
However, a few hours later, a blue-haired Azealia shared a selfie on her Instagram to show her followers that she was doing better than before.
She also begged her fans to support her when she’s doing well, not just when she’s down.
Azealia previously opened up about her mental health struggles on her Facebook page.
She said: “They joke and prod at you and say you need a doctor yet have no idea about the type of uncontrollable chaos that goes on inside your head.
“On top of arrogantly suggesting you need to be medicated, these people have no idea how gnarly psych-drugs are.”
The 29-year-old was suspended on Twitter after she got into a fight with actress Skye Jackson, and slammed singer Zayn Malik with an array of racial slurs.
She recently left fans shocked after she “predicted” that Meghan Markle would die in a car crash in 2022.
