Azealia Banks has alarmed fans with disturbing messages on her Instagram.
The rapper-singer first posted a series of messages on her IG storeis which suggested that she planned to end her own life. “Yea, 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 its worth,” she first wrote.
“I think I will end my tenure here on earth soon. I’m not begging for attention or asking for sympathy/empathy,” she said. “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.”

“I will try my best to finish the projects I promised I would beforehand,” she said about her upcoming project Fantasea II: The Second Wave. “With whatever strength is left.”
Following that, the 29 year-old also posted an audio message where she said she had a welfare check and is looking for voluntary euthanasia options. “I’m gonna, like, start looking for voluntary euthanasia options. Because, you know, I don’t have any more defense. I don’t,” she continued.
