Last night, Chicago rapper CupcakKe tweeted that she “was about to commit suicide.” She then Instagrammed that tweet, adding “Thank you for everything y’all have done for me I really appreciate it.”
Her fans, naturally, were incredibly worried. More than 12,000 people – including Kathy Griffin, Iggy Azalea, and CupcakKe collaborator Charli XCX — tweeted messages of support to her.
Some also alerted the Chicago police report, who went to check in on CupcakKe. The BBC reports that Chicago police checked in on her several times and, when they got in touch with her, took her to an area hospital. The Chicago Police Department tells the BBC, “Officers went out a few times to check on Elizabeth (Harris, her real name). Once they got in touch with her, they took her to hospital — not for her injuries — but for a mental evaluation.”
Hopefully she’s getting the help that she needs and will be back in the game as soon as she’s ready.
