On Saturday, Banks left many of her followers worried when she took to her Instagram stories to share what appeared to be her resolve to commit suicide.

“Yea, 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 its worth. I think I will end my tenure here on earth soon,” she had written.

“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.”

“Don’t express concern for me when I’m down. You can do that when I’m up there. Support me when I’m feeling good and got smile on my face. Don’t support me when I’m crying or down. Do that when I’m showing my creativity and releasing new music…” she said.
