A few details have emerged from the shocking story of Kehlani’s apparent suicide attempt on Monday. According to TMZ, paramedics were called to her home at 1:45 PM after being told that the singer “wanted to harm herself.” The 20-year-old siger was transported to a nearby hospital and placed under psychatric hold for mental evaluation. According to one source, she is “doing much better.”

Baller Alert preserved a distressing letter from Kehlani’s Instagram account that delves into her tumultuous relationship with social media. Read it below in full:

“[Not] always crying for attention or help, I got my mama number on speed dial for that shit,” she wrote in a since deleted Instagram post from her hospital room. “[Is] everyone that conditioned to celebrities not being REAL PEOPLE??? I’m fucking going thru it. Going thru 20 year old drama queen issues and figure since all the trials in my songs that have seemed to help so many others, sharing my truths must be continued. Yes I got thru some crazy ass shit. But YES I TELL THE STORY SO THAT HOPEFULLY SOMEONE ELSE WHO NEEDED TO HEAR IT, WOULD. Im tired of being called the “cry for help” cuz never in my life have I EVER asked a single soul to take pity on me no matter WHAT I’m going thru. And since you’re begging for the truth of on my love life: I am severely in love with my first love. Went thru a bad breakup and ended up easing into a relationship with a man who was one of my bestfriend. Tho we reallzed we both weren’t exactly at a time where we were prepared to do so. No I’m not a CHEATER, a THOT, im a BELIEVER IN FOLLOWING YOUR HEART and not LYING TO YOURSELF. And in all aspects on everyone’s side, EVERYONE IS HAPPY AND HONEST AND MATURE. Social media is the goddamn devil. Go outside and play, you have your own lives to live that don’t revolve around “celebrities” or “socialites” who are simply trying to live lives like you.”

Kehlani also posted and later deleted a picture of PartyNextDoor sitting beside her hospital bed. PND posted a picture to Instagram of the two of them in bed together that sparked the social media firestorm only a couple hours before paramedics were called to Kehlani’s residence.
