Azealia Banks’ fans concerned after rapper appears to be suicidal and says she’s ‘ready to go’ in new Instagram posts

AZEALIA Banks’ fans are concerned after the rapper appeared to be suicidal and said she's 'ready to go' in new Instagram posts.

The 29-year-old singer-songwriter had previously opened up about her mental health.

Fans have rushed to Azealia's social media channels after she posted a series of troublesome Instagram posts where she claimed she had reached her limit after being locked down because of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Yeah, 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 it's worth," she first shared on Instagram stories.

"I think I will end my tenure here on Earth soon."

She then continued on a second story: "I'm not begging for attention or asking for sympathy/empathy.

"I'm just ready to go. Peacefully, of course.

"I will documents my last times and release a film for you all to finally understand me, from my perspective."

The Luxury rapper finished it off by saying that her "soul is tired" and she's "ready to go."

She also recorded a series of heartbreaking and troubling audio files on Instagram stories where she pleaded for someone to take care of her dogs for a few weeks while she got adjusted to her new home, where she claimed she could barely sleep at nights.

After the troubling claims, fans rushed to social media to plead with the star and show their support.

One Twitter user wrote: "I might not listen to her but she is a human being and her existence matters, you have people who love you, please don't do this.

"I might not understand your pain but know, everyone is worth something in life."

A second one commented: "This should be taken seriously. I hope she gets the help she needs before it's too late."

A third wrote: "I don't care if you like her or not, this is something clearly going through it, please be respectful."

Even fellow rapper, Missy Elliot, commented: "Praying for her peace of mind. May she be surrounded with people who will protect and cover her with love and strength."

Other fans spoke more about the public's treatment of the rapper after she first opened up about her mental health issues a few years ago.

"I hate how Azealia is seen as a 'villain' and is blamed and ridiculed for everything she does despite explaining several times her mental health conditions, but Kanye is always coddled and excused for his behavior. The hate black women receive is appalling," a fifth user wrote.

"I'm not trying to read a headline at the end of the year that she's dead. Praying for her now. That's all I can do."

However, a few hours later, a blue-haired Azealia shared a selfie on her Instagram to show her followers that she was doing better than before.

Smiling at the camera, she shared: "I’m fine, better than I was before."

This isn't the first time that Azealia has opened up about her mental health struggles.

She had previously shared on her Facebook page: "They joke and prod at you and say you need a doctor yet have no idea about the type of uncontrollable chaos that goes on inside your head.

"On top of arrogantly suggesting you need to be medicated, these people Have no idea how gnarly psych-drugs are."

The 29-year-old had also gotten her Twitter account suspended after she picked a fight with actress Skye Jackson and slammed singer Zayn Malik with an array of racial slurs.

She, most recently, left fans disgusted after she "predicted" that Meghan Markle would die in a car crash in 2022.
