Friends and fans of Azealia Banks are concerned for the singer’s wellbeing as she has posted a series of worrying messages on Instagram.
Admitting that things are feeling a little too much for her at the minute, Azealia posted a number of crypic notes on her Instagram story.
“Yea. I think I’m done here,” she wrote.
Continuing on in the first post she said: “This pandemic, extreme lack of social interaction, no intimacy, combined with constant public ridicule is making life harder than its worth.”
“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… My soul is tired. I’m ready to go.”
Going on, Azealia posted an audio message of her letting fans know that she is doing fine, sharing that a friend came over to do a welfare check on her,”I’m fine. I promise you I’m fine. I’m not scared.”
“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.”
The rapper also went on to ask her followers to give her some space and not bombard her with messages of their empathy, “Please don’t bombard me with messages. I am not in pain. I am at peace.”
Understandably, however, people have been expressing their concern for the 29-year-old on social media.
I really hope that Azealia Banks is covered/protected in this moment. Black women with mental illness genuinely do not get the same grace/empathy as others do. She deserves a healthy life where she doesn’t feel this pain.

Idc if you don’t like Azealia Banks or disagree with anything she’s said or done before. She’s a human being who is at her lowest point rn and needs mental help
