The family and friends of Chicago rapper CupcakKe are rallying around her after she publicly contemplated suicide.

The 21-year-old performer sounded alarm bells with her massive following when she tweeted on Monday evening, “im about to commit suicide (sic)”

After several calls to emergency services, the Chicago Police Department conducted a wellness check on the rapper, which led to her hospitalization. While fans awaited word on CupcakKe’s status, an outpouring of support online was both fast and forceful.

Elijah Daniel, who appears to be a friend of the rapper, whose given name is Elizabeth Eden Harris, shared updates with her followers via Twitter throughout the evening, ultimately confirming that she was, in fact, safe and in the care of health professionals.

Representatives for CupcakKe have yet to respond to a request for comment. If you or anyone close to you is contemplating suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255.
