Cupcakke Speaks for the First Time Since Suicidal Tweet and Hospital Stay
CupcakKe is out of the hospital and recovering following a suicidal tweet she posted Monday night (Jan. 7). Upon her release from the hospital, the rapper shared an update with fans to let them know that she is okay.
"I’ve been fighting with depression for the longest ..sorry that I did it public last night but I’m ok," the Ephorize rapper wrote on Twitter Tuesday night (Jan. 8). "I went to the hospital & im finally getting the help that I need to get through , be happy , & deliver great music . thanks for all the prayers but please don’t worry bout me."
On Monday night, CupcakKe worried fans and friends when she tweeted simply, "im about to commit suicide," with no further update. Comedian Elijah Daniel, who is a close friend of the Chicago rapper, later shared an update, revealing that Chicago police went to the rapper's place after her tweet and had taken her to a hospital. Chicago PD later confirmed to Radio 1 Newsbeat that CupcakKe had been taken to the hospital. They clarified that the hospital trip was for "mental evaluation" and thankfully not physical injuries.
The rapper was scheduled to tour with Iggy Azalea in 2018, but the tour was ultimately cancelled. Iggy shared some kind words for CupcakKe following the scare.
"Sending love to @CupcakKe_rapper," Iggy wrote on Twitter. "I understand how hopeless and overwhelmed with negativity we can sometimes feel. I hope you'll take some time with those that really know YOU best; then when you're ready come back stronger than ever!"
