• He revealed that she killed herself in his hotel room. "“A few days ago, I went though something I went through before, but not exactly in this term. I’ve had friends that killed themselves. I’ve seen people go through that. I’ve seen it all around me,” X said. “There was this girl I had basically flew down here to model. Great girl, beautiful girl. Wonderful personality. Showed no signs of depression whatsoever. When she flew down here, in an unexplained way, she killed herself when she came down here. It was a devastating situation to deal with.
“I basically got on here to address her and her family because I haven’t been able to contact her family personally,” he continued. “It f****d me up so bad to where obviously I wasn’t on social media for the last few days unless I was addressing something I needed to. Her name is Jocelyn. It’s hard to come from where she came from to be battling with suicide for so long, and be battling with depression for so long, and to kinda feel a step away from it, and see it happen right next to you. To feel so useless and powerless. It’s overall a really sad situation.”
X encouraged people who are suffering from depression to seek help.
