Azealia Banks Claims ‘I’m Fine’ After Posting Suicidal Messages

Azealia Banks

*Azealia Banks fans are concerned about her well being after she posted several alarming posts alluding to suicidal thoughts. 

On Saturday, the controversial rapper took to her Instagram Live story where she made clear that she is “done here.”

“Yea, I think I’m done here,” Banks wrote. “This pandemic, extreme lack of social interaction, no intimacy, combined with constant public ridicule is making life harder than its worth. I think I will end my tenure here on earth soon.”

Banks also noted that she’s not seeking “attention” or asking for “sympathy/empathy”… she’s just “ready to go.”

“I will document my last times and release a film for you all to finally understand me, from my perspective,” Banks wrote. “My soul is tired. I’m ready to go.”

Banks, who once bragged about being a witch who sacrificed chickens to the Illuminati (or something like that…) promised fans more new music before she checks out of life permanently. The New York native claims she “doesn’t have any more defense.” 

It’s unclear what triggered Banks to share her suicide pact with herself.

“My decision is made. I’m just gonna really try to push through these next couple of months…,” she added. “I’m gonna, like, start looking for voluntary euthanasia options. Because, you know, I don’t have any more defense. I don’t.”

Banks said she is over being the person that “people make fun of.”

On Sunday, she said she needs her “time and some space” and also noted that she’s going to “try to get whatever is inside out and shake that s–t off.”

“I really need to lighten my load, so I can make sense of things,” she said.

One person wrote in response to her confessionals, “Just saw why Azealia Banks is trending and I’m praying someone close to her gets her some help before she harms herself. Black women are afforded little to no grace when dealing with mental health challenges and she certainly deserves our support.”

She also uploaded audio of herself explaining that a friend performed a welfare check on her. “I’m fine. I promise you I’m fine. I’m not scared,” she said.

On Sunday night, however, Azealia Banks provided a status update via a Instagram selfie along with the caption: “I’m fine, better than I was before.”
